Plant and Road Equipment Division
A significant event took place in January 2000, when Marini obtained the prestigious quality certification ISO 9001, meaning that now its entire production process, from the design stage to the last detail of construction, is documented and certified to the very highest of quality standards.
The 350-strong workforce consists of 200 shop-floor workers and 150 office workers, technicians and managers.The plants Marini produces are ‘continuous mix’ and ‘batch type’, the latter having the biggest market. At the beginning of the nineties, Marini designed, patented and built the EMCC (continuous counter-flow type), an environmentally-friendly plant which keeps polluting emissions to a minimum.
As far as the road building sector goes, the production of rollers has now been abandoned. All other ranges have been redesigned and renewed, for instance the track-mounted and tyre-mounted finishers; also scarifiers have come back onto the production line.
At the beginning of the 2000s, an important overall strategic reorganization of production procedures was carried out in Alfonsine with the creation of two distinct operational divisions: They had put together a ‘Plant and a Road Equipment Division’ to efficiently coordinate all the companies in the Group that manufacture products which fall into these categories.
