MCG Stories

For more than 70 years, MCG has presented an innovative vision in product design, production, and supply chain integration to work with some of the largest OEM and TIER 1 car manufacturers.

Today, as an international company that also has a presence in other production areas, MCG reinforces its strong position worldwide daily and within a European industry that grows and improves even in times of opposition.

Here are some numbers from the day-to-day MCG that help give dimension to the magnitude of the projects carried out by the MCG automotive, MCG industry and MCG transportation business areas.
