Who we are

130 years ago we invented Gabions and dramatically changed civil engineering’s landscape. We are still changing it today. We work everyday, with 130 years of our history, to find better solutions for our clients at every degree of latitude and longitude. We make innovation happen around the world, we share our knowledge capital to multiply the return on investment of clients and partners, and we offer ongoing support to establish relations built on solid trust. This is us: Maccaferri.

We are a global company, with more than 70 subsidiaries operating in 5 continents, with an on-site presence in more than 100 countries, and nearly 3000 employees: we are highly-specialized professionals trained in designing and developing complex solutions in the civil engineering, geotechnical and environmental construction markets. Our worldwide network grows through innovation and diversification of its sectors of activity and through an increasing range of high quality and environmentally-friendly products and applications.

We do not simply sell products: we strive to be the leading technical reference for designing and developing advanced projects. We are strongly committed to solving our clients’ problems by providing better solutions through attentive listening, innovation and collaboration.

To meet the challenges of the future, we have a very strong asset to rely on: 130 years of documented history, starting from Raffaele Maccaferri’s stroke of genius who in 1879 invented the modern Gabion, all the way to the current worldwide network operating in multiple markets. Today we are the undisputed leader in the manufacturing and supply of gabions and associated wire mesh products to the global construction industry.

Inspired by the ambition to solve even more complex problems, our expansion goes on: today we produce a wide range of geosynthetics including geogrids and geocomposites in numerous factories around the world. We are always striving for innovation. We keep searching for constant improvement. We are Maccaferri.

Our values

At Maccaferri we do not simply sell products: we provide better solutions – identifying, addressing and responding to the specific needs of each client. Maccaferri is a partner who works alongside clients from the start of the project, maximising value for money through technical expertise and an extensive portfolio of quality products.

Our better solutions start from the design phase of the project, with the simple aim of solving a problem. Then, we proceed through all the stages of development, in close synergy with our subsidiaries; manufacturing, designing and installing solutions throughout the world. Our better solutions are always the end result of a close-knit, multi-level integration of Maccaferri’s headquarters in Italy, local subsidiaries and clients’ needs.
