SINCE 1961 MANY EXPERIENCES GAINED TOGETHER WITH OUR CUSTOMERS
Started in 1961 in a small building in Molinetto di Mazzano (BS) not far from the Garda Lake, that of MCS Morandi has always been a family story. The brothers Pietro, Mario, Giovanni and Franco, passionate about mechanics, following the wave of the flourishing Italian industrial development, had an idea and the courage to make it happen.
Since the early years, the company’s choice has been to specialize in the construction of precision injection moulds for plastics, with the determination to offer its customers a complete and professional range of services.
The decision to work for foreign markets dates back to those early years. In 1966 MCS Morandi was already producing for the American market and soon exported almost 90% of its turnover to European and non-European countries including the USA, the UK, Russia, South Africa, Venezuela and Turkey.
In 1969, the first expansion took place, with a covered area of 2,000 square metres. The first supplies of injection moulds for the Automotive sector began.
From 1975 to 1978 the company built 150 moulds for automotive customers in Russia, for the construction of the Russian Fiat 124, better known as the Lada-Vaz Žiguli, the car that actually powered the Soviet Union. In 1984, following a further expansion, 4000 square meters of covered area were reached.
