Started by Mario Carraro in 1947 as a repair workshop for electric motors, MECC ALTE gradually progressed to the production of small electric motors; and in the next decade, to the construction of its first alternators. Inspired by a brilliant idea of the company’s owners, in the early 1970’s, MECC ALTE decided to concentrate its activities on a single type of product, progressively expanding both its production range and its share of the Italian market. In the 1980’s, the opening of the first branches for sales and assistance in France, Germany, the United Kingdom, the USA and Singapore paved the way for the group’s growth in international markets as well; but it was in the next decade that the rapid and constant rise in sales allowed the current production levels of over 1700 alternators a day to be achieved.

MECC ALTE is now a group with 10 production facilities occupying a total area of 55,000 square metres, each specializing in a specific production sector: industrial alternators at Mecc Alte in Creazzo (VI), Mecc Alte UK in Oakham (GB), Mecc Alte Haimen (PRC); Mecc Alte India Ltd in Pune, welders at Zanardi in Altavilla Vicentina (VI); portable alternators at Mecc Alte in Soave (VR); magnetic core laminations, essential components for the entire product range, at Veco in Bevilacqua (VR).

Alternators produced are from 1kVA to 3000kVA in synchronous form for all market sectors including marine, military, CHP, agriculture, rail, telecom and RTGC.
