Since the early 19th century, the Scotuzzi family has a long history in the metal manufacturing industry. Acquiring experience and know-how along the way, the Scotuzzi brothers Amos, Angelo Giuseppe and Giacomo established the first MAC (Meccanizzazione Agricola Cartaria) facility in the 1960s in Milano.
In 1963 MAC manufactured the first continuous bale press, and soon after an innovative waste paper crusher.
In 1971 a second factory was built; the first automatic baling press went into production and was launched at the Fiera Campionaria in Milan.
In 1974 the factory was enlarged to a covered area of now 3,000 m2.
Continuously developing, specializing and expanding its range of technologies, i.e. waste disposal, in 1986 Macpresse ( as it was now called) set up the currently used manufacturing facility, expanding it to a total area of 170.000 m2, of which 20.000 m2 are now covered.
Macpresse is actually managed and owned by the 5th generation of the Scotuzzi family.
Macpresse designs and builds custom-made systems for the recycling and waste industries, adopting the most advanced technical solutions. Our decades of experience gained in this industry ensure total support from production to after-the-sales service.
Because of the need for differentiation and compacting bigger volumes of secondary raw material, in the last ten years the whole recycling industry has undergone a radical transformation characterized by the use of the most innovative technologies in both systems and machinery.
Thanks to the experience acquired in over 40 years, Macpresse offers systems that meet the customers' specific requirements and an exclusive after-sales service characterized by the guaranteed availability of spare parts and by an international network of professional engineers.
Macpresse has deep established roots: The Scotuzzi family has been involved with metal working for five generations. At the beginning of the 19th century, Angelo Scotuzzi, the founder, started working in Brescia as a horseshoer and his son Giacomo continued to work as a blacksmith until 1850.
Early 20th century
With the boost of new industrial opportunities, Libero, Giacomo's son, established a metal workshop in Brescia, producing the first agricultural machines and providing local farmers with the maintenance for it.
Paying attention to the opportunities offered by expanding markets markets, having acquired a wealth of experience and subsequent approval of the validity of its products, in the Sixties the brothers Amos, Angelo Giuseppe and Giacomo Scotuzzi moved to Milan, setting up MAC (Meccanizzazione Agricola Cartaria).
MAC manufactures the first baling press, followed by an innovative waste paper crusher.
A second factory was built and the first automatic press went into production and was launched at the Fiera Campionaria in Milan.
The factory was enlarged, with a covered area of now 3,000 square metres.
Continuing its development and in the specialization of solutions for waste disposal, in 1986 MAC (now named Macpresse) started construction of part I of the current factory, which followed by part II brought the total land area to 170,000 square metres, with17,000 sqm are totally covered.
Macpresse expands its manufacturing facility by an additional 3000 m2.
Today Macpresse is continues to be owned and managed by the 5h generation of the Scotuzzi family. Strongly positioned among the industry leaders, Macpresse designs, engineers, manufacturs and exports recycling and waste disposal systems to all parts of the world. The head office with its senior management for both commercial and manufacturing activities is stragetically located south of Milan.
