PASSION AND DEDICATION: A LEGACY WE ARE PROUD OF
Macpresse is one of the leading companies for waste and recyclables treatment at an international level. The company is managed by the fifth generation of the Scotuzzi family. Machines are manufactured in the three factories based in Milan, Italy. The headquarters and administrative offices are located in Milan as well: a covered area of ??17,000 square meters, out of a total of 270,000 square meters.
Macpresse consolidates its presence in the waste sector, started in the previous decade. It creates the first baler – fully dedicated to waste baling – in collaboration with the leading company in the waste collection sector in Italy at the time.
From MAC (Macchine Agricole Cartarie) to Macpresse: the Milanese company changes its name and continues to specialize in building machines for waste treatment over the years. Meanwhile, the factories where today machines are still designed and manufactured are built.
MAC builds its second factory (3,000 square meters) to manufacture its first automatic baler, which is launched at the fair trade “Fiera Campionaria” in Milan. It is a great success for the company and the culmination of a major initiative began in the 60s, when the first baler and an innovative shredder for waste paper were built.
Thanks to the experience gained in manufacturing agricultural and paper-processing machines at the beginning of the 20th century, MAC takes the plunge and expands its business. The first baler and, then, an innovative shredder for waste paper are built.
MIDDLE OF THE 20th CENTURY
Macpresse history is also the history of the Scotuzzi family, now in its fifth generation. Each generation has contributed – both in terms of products and business expansion – to the growth of the company which, step by step, has internationally established itself as an industry leader
The Scotuzzi family members have been specialising in the metalworking industry since the beginning of the 19th century: they began as farriers with the founder Angelo, and then became blacksmiths with his son Giacomo. His son, Libero, expands the business and builds the first agricultural machines for the local market.
In the middle of 20th century, the brothers Amos, Angelo Giuseppe and Giacomo, the third generation of the family, sense the potential of a growing market: they move the business from Brescia to Milan and establish the MAC (Macchine Agricole Cartarie) company. This is the basis for the future Macpresse.
