A passion for mechanics: from talent to entrepreneur. In 1963 Alberto Mantovani launched the extraordinary development of Mantovanibenne: starting from a metal  carpentry workshop, he specialised in the production of buckets, reaching industrial dimensions in the Seventies with the construction of the Mirandola plant. At the end of the Eighties, the company took the farsighted decision to adopt CNC technology, expanded its product lineup and started making demolition equipment, of which it soon became one of the major manufacturers. In 1997, with a growing international presence, Mantovanibenne inaugurated its French branch, MBI France, in Toulouse and entered the new millennium with further upgrades of its manufacturing facilities and head offices, in preparation for new challenges.


All processes are optimised for efficiency, quality and customer satisfaction, as attested by the fact that the company was one of the first in this sector to achieve certification to ISO 9001:2000 – a natural outcome of the company’s longstanding attention to quality in all aspects of its business activities. In 2009, the company has achieved to meet the requirements of the brand new certification ISO 9001: 2008.


Listening to the voice of the market, aspiring to continual improvement of products and services through research and investment. Mantovanibenne has always believed in technology and computerisation as the motors of its development: its first CAD station dates back to the Eighties, and the adoption of the “solid designer” 3D design system and full computerisation of all departments bear witness to this belief. The entire production process is organised according to “Just in Time” manufacturing logic to ensure perfect planning of all processes and rapid, punctual delivery. But not just company management, but the entire workforce shares this belief in shared objectives and achievements, in a self-reinforcing cycle of improvement of quality and service.

Creative flair and wide-ranging technical know-how have always been the keys to Mantovanibenne’s design activities, with the company’s offering of catalogue and custom products growing constantly from year to year. The credit goes to the company’s management team, who are always travelling in search of direct contact with the market and user’s needs, strategically supported by a technical department equipped with the best available resources. The company’s specialised and professional staff uses the most advanced available technology to run feasibility studies, design projects and production planning, monitoring each phase of the process with feedback from on-site test reports, to provide ever more intelligent solutions.


Mr. Alberto Mantovani, the founder of Mantovanibenne, has always based his business on a few important principles: investment in innovative research, high technology for design and manufacture, testing & quality procedures, but, most important, investment in people.
