After careful and long lasting search for a partner, Minh Duc selected MCT Italy to become their batching plant supplier. The fully customized mixing solution offered by MCT, together with a flexible plant layout aimed at feeding concrete to several machines simultaneously, was the ultimate reason for choosing this convincing technology.
