Message of the Chairman

Being part of the Mecwide group is having the opportunity to belong to an increasingly international team where employees are valued and the focus on training is continuous. 

Thanks to our ambition, we overcame barriers and the dream of internationalization took shape, becoming real.

I am sure that this success is largely due to the ability to create a culture of high demand, guided by team spirit, and to the way we relate to the various partners.

We are a company of people for people, and we are pround of it!
