September 2006 marked the Golden Jubilee of Matteuzzi and the event was celebrated with an exhibition at the company’s headquarters and a gala dinner at an open air museum in Bologna.

The guest list included partners and past and present employees, many of the latter having in excess of 25 years’ service with the company. Also attending the celebration was the very first employee, who left to become an artist.

50th anniversary memorial gold coins were presented as long service awards to those who have been working with the company for more than 25 years. Some of the recipients have been with the company since the time it was led by the founder, Giulio Matteuzzi.

Matteuzzi, founded in 1956 by the Matteuzzi family , whose second generation stands at the company’s helm today, has always been dedicated to the production of machines and equipment for tyres.
The company is located near Bologna, Italy and since its establishment it has produced a vast range of machinery and equipment for different sectors sharing one thing in common: manufactured rubber goods, tyres in particular.
Matteuzzi makes machines for manufacturers of new tyres and retreaders of tyres for cars, light trucks, trucks, earthmovers and aircraft.

Its product range also includes finishing lines for precured treads. In this sector Matteuzzi builds machines with varying degrees of automation (from semiautomatic to computerised), designed to work different lengths and profiles of precured tread strips.
Matteuzzi has consolidated its experience in this sector since 1974, when it produced its first complete line.

On the occasion of Matteuzzi’s 50th anniversary celebration, Claudio and Emilio Matteuzzi, soul of the company, gave a brief speech to guests in which they highlighted and summarised the spirit that has always driven this company:
Matteuzzi’s history is made up of 50 years of passion for our work, a strong will and determination to achieve, day after day, and sometimes day and night, the targets we have set ourselves all along the way. Our enterprise is based on the values that our founders taught us, values we constantly try to convey to all the people who share this path with us: our staff, customers, and suppliers. These values are:

Quality of work, products and service
Innovation: Matteuzzi always strives for innovation and focuses on research to develop new products
Transparency and honesty in all relationships
Flexibility, a forward-thinking approach, cooperation and ability to meet the expectations of business partners and customer demand worldwide
