2017: our first 50 years
On the occasion of our first 50 years, there are a lot of news: the new MCT logo, the new graphic and communication design. A wonderful book containing a whole life history and anecdotes of the founder Lamberto Marcantonini and this company.
In September, we celebrated a big party together with customers from all over the world, partners, lifetime suppliers, employees and their families to mark in everyone’s memory this wonderful achievement, which, at the same time, is a new starting point.
2016: the year of changes
2009: another masterpiece is installed in Italy
The precast batching plant and concrete distribution system are unique in their complexity and flexibility: a tower with 16 aggregate hoppers, 4 mixers, colour dispenser, fiber dosing units, 4 flying buckets, 1,200 meters of rails with exchanges, 5 casting machines, 8 systems for manufactured products transports.
1976: First sales abroad
The very first plant developed abroad is in Kenitra, Morocco.
The second plant has been sold in Thailand, for the River Kwai (yes: that River Kwai!) dam. The River Kwai plant has been the first with load cells for batch weighing.
The third plant has been sold in Switzerland.
In 1976 we switch from electromechanical to electronic automation.
In 1978/79 sales abroad become steady: Iran, Iraq, Morocco, France…
1966: The beginning
Lamberto Marcantonini teams up with SIMCAS (now Manini Prefabbricati), a company which needs a batching plant to product prestressed beams with a ROTH (a German company) paver.
Marcantonini proposes the development of this batching plant:
- 4 aggregates (radially) with volumetric dosing;
- 1 planetary mixer with skip (0.5cbm);
- 1 cement (silo, cochlea, 300 kg scale);
- 1 water dosage with meter.
It was the birth of the first batching plant for semi-dry concrete with semi-automatic management.
Two more plants are developed in 1966:
- The plant for Ditta Cancellotti Delfo di Pontevalleceppi, Perugia, is exactly identical to the first.
The plant for Ditta Barili Silvio at Rivotorto di Assisi is provided for a self-propelled block machine and has 3 aggregates and 1 planetary mixer with skip (0.5cbm) for self-propelled block machine.
