The story of a product that has revolutionised work on construction sites.
The first crusher bucket was invented by five brothers from Breganze and introduced in 2001.
“We were born and raised amid the oil, grease and diesel of earthmoving machines,” said the Azzolin brothers. We worked with them day and night. We’d had an idea buzzing around in our heads for some time though; to come up with an economic and innovative way to reuse the waste materials around the yard. Something that would reduce the costs of transporting and disposing of waste material.”
There were already solutions out there – fixed and mobile crushers, screening plants, etc. – but there was one problem: they were all costly to purchase, transport and maintain.
And not all of them could be used on any type of construction site, especially sites in hard-to-reach locations or urban areas.
“Then we had an idea. We already had excavators at the construction site, which we used with digging buckets and demolition hammers. That’s where we got the idea of making a bucket that could dig up the material and crush it at the same time.
We researched it, designed it and patented it. Then we tested it with the machines on our construction sites. It was a great idea.
That’s how the Meccanica Breganzese was created, and it’s now known all over the world as the MB Crusher. MB is synonymous with crusher buckets,” said the brothers.
It’s been more than 16 years since that time; years spent on technical research and development of dozens of patents, associated all over the world with a business that’s constantly being updated with new products. Years of creation and innovation that has seen the family business evolve into an international company, and created a new market segment that has improved and accelerated the work of thousands of companies. “In 16 years, it’s not just the market that’s changed,” said the brothers.
“We’ve also grown in terms of turnover, international reach, the number of products we make – from one, we now have 30, and the number of employees, the company now has over 150.”
The MB crusher bucket has also become the symbol of a worldwide campaign in which the search for maximum productivity is combined with an awareness of the need for rational and economical use of natural resources.
“We live in a time where people all over the world are concerned about what will happen in the future and are wondering how best to use available resources more sparingly,” the company explained. “The population continues to grow, and with it the demand for raw materials. It’s precisely for this reason that the waste material processing equipment sector has evolved so rapidly and brought cutting-edge solutions to construction sites. Solutions like the MB crusher bucket; a product that creates value, is good for the environment and brings in profit for the companies that use it.”
A product that the company exhibits and puts to work at the industry’s biggest showcases all over the world: trade fairs, exhibitions, demo tours, and it’s already started for 2018 from the very early days.
