Two friends, two dreamers, two entrepreneurs with the ability to always throw their hearts over the obstacle: Matteo Goich and Massimo Bertolucci are the founding partners of Matec, a company engaged in the production of machinery for the filtration and purification of waste water in many sectors. The story of Matec has the strength of an American dream, in an all-Tuscan setting: young age, debts, the crisis, no difficulty has broken the spirit of those who do not just sell industrial machinery all over the world, but tell of courage and Made in Italy.
“Only by throwing your hat across the river will you understand how to get it back’ M. G.”
Founded in 2004, Matec now has 120 employees and numerous locations around the world: from Turkey to America, Brazil and Australia. Turnover has grown exponentially in recent years, reaching 40 million euros. Mainly thanks to the choice of internationalisation pursued by the company.
“The unknown is not a wall, but a horizon, it is not the bank of intelligence, but the impetus of our thirst for knowledge.”
Matec is the expression of a challenge that presents itself every day: discovering unexplored lands, new opportunities for growth and business. The journey of a Matec machine starts in Massa, but arrives all over the world, carrying in its gears the charm of Tuscany and the history of its founders, entrepreneurs in their souls. Matteo and Massimo have demonstrated their talent and entrepreneurial creativity since they were young, they have repeatedly challenged the unknown, not fleeing from it, but facing it with the strength of an unwavering will, as solid as the marble of their land.
Matec has chosen to support its enormous energy consumption with the use of photovoltaic panels, the company also engages in strict control of substances in production, such as paint and processing waste. Sustainability is mainly generated by the company’s product: machinery that reduces water consumption by 90% and sludge emission by 85%.
The company uses 4.0 machines to enable remote control. The use of technology has gradually increased as the company has expanded, hence the need for a management system to control projects, orders and shipments. In addition, the use of high-pressure technology in the production line allows the creation of highly resistant and therefore highly competitive machinery in the market.
