MB’s bucket crushers were the first to appear on the market. Their versatility of use and the resulting benefits make them the ideal machinery in various fields of application, such as demolition, handling materials from earth-moving, quarrying and mining operations, environmental reclamation and redevelopment of former industrial and urban areas.

The financial results attained have rewarded the company from Breganze by enabling it to remain innovative and at the leading edge in a demanding market, to which it is capable of responding actively thanks to the strong values in which it believes and its strong communication capacity which has led it to implement substantial changes at the financial/entrepreneurial level.

In this way we will be ready to meet any demands of the international market and offer products of the highest quality, guaranteed 100% made in Italy.”
Furthermore, during the shareholders’ meeting large investments in research and development were approved, as well as a regular presence at the most important trade fairs – a sign of how MB S.p.A. refuses to stand still in the face of the recession but on the contrary, aware of the extremely high quality of the products it offers, continues to lead the way in communication. The company will be taking part at the BAUMA trade fair in Munich in 2010, the most important international event in the sector.
Once again MB, a company 100% “Made in Italy”, shows itself to be a leader capable of proposing revolutionary ideas and activities that can satisfy the needs and demands of customers worldwide.
