Technological excellence: as usual MEP. The MEP Technologies’ Competence Centre.

M.E.P. Macchine Elettroniche Piegatrici S.p.A., founded on February 8th, 1966 and located in Reana del Rojale, North- Eastern Italy, whose activity consists of the ideation, design, prototyping, engineering, production and marketing of rebar (reinforcing bar)-processing industrial machinery, plants and equipment, is the main leader on the global market. The Group operates in the following segments: cut and bend – rebar processing equipment, cold rolling, straightening, cutting, precast engineering, welding & handling, and downstream engineered production process in mesh welding plants.
MEP has been an innovation-based company from the very beginning of its activity, already international in 1967 with the first registered patent: the first stirrup bender in the world!
MEP has since further improved its strong technological connotation thanks to the essential contribution of specialized Research & Development fully covered by almost 100 registered patents, the MEP Business School and the MEP Technologies’ Competence Centre. The Primary Income Generating Assets, represented by Know-How, Intellectual Property, Technology, Brand and Stakeholder relationships, all together built, over decades of experience in the industry, and integrated with efficiency, responsiveness and flexibility, optimising the Value for customers worldwide. Moreover, the Client’s satisfaction is guaranteed by pre and aftersales assistance, support and services: rather than the mere delivery of a product, MEP engages in the Technology Solution Provision, meeting all the customer’s needs and requirements as turnkey installation, spare parts supply, inplant layout, software control and other digital operations in line with the concept of Industry 4.0.
The fourth Industrial Revolution has permeated the already existing technological substratum of the organisation.
Instruments such as Virtual Reality, Internet of Things and Cloud Computing are employed in the Group’s daily activities. Although MEP is an innovation and technology driven company, ultimately and definitely, the value creation derives from the Human Capital: it has become clear that the machine will never be able to replace the competence, expertise, passion and knowhow of people; rather, it represents an essential tool to empower the human operator, maximising unexpressed or undervalued potentials of the industrial transhumanism.
The avantgarde technological innovation capability represents the primary source of competitive advantage towards global competition, making MEP’s machines able to guarantee both the highest production standard and the finest possible output quality at the same time. 80.000 square meter-plant, 128 countries served and 11.000 machines installed worldwide are just some of the numbers testifying MEP’s best-in-class position.
