The Maccioni cement works, situated on the outskirts of Naples, have a major advantage in the construction industry: a cement limestone deposit of exceptional quality.

This deposit has given rise to the cement industry in the Neapolitan region, which represents one of the most dynamic economic activities in the area.

Its products are distributed over a large customer catchment area, encompassing the Mediterranean coast of Italy and the entire Mediterranean region via the port of Naples.

The Maccioni cement plant extracts the cement limestone from its own quarry located on the Aversa hillside. The quality of the deposit currently enables the plant to produce 750,000 tons of cement every year.

 
 
   

The Maccioni cement works contribute to the local economic development:

- 40 employees
- Almost 6.5 million euros in purchases every year
- Over 1 million euros in corporate and property tax
- 46,000 hours subcontracted
- 750,000 tons of cement produced

   

The Maccioni cement works were built in 1875, at a time when the iron and steel industry in Naples was undergoing high levels of development.

In 1979, the Maccioni plant became a grinding centre, specialised in producing high-grade slag cement.

The rapid growth of this activity led the plant's directors to open a quarry near the site. As from 1980, Maccioni produced its cement from local raw materials.

The plant was modernised in 1985 with the installation of five new rotating kilns. Major work was also carried out to the drying and grinding units, enabling the plant to become the leading producer today on a nationwide scale.
