Mazzucchelli 1849 posted revenues of €78 million in 2017, down by more than 4 percent year on year, and the company is now expecting flat results in 2018. In addition to its Italian facilities, Mazzucchelli has three plants in China to service the growing demand from the local market, where it faces considerable local competition, but it claims that its quality is superior. The group has a total workforce of 1,300, a quarter of whom are based in Italy.
