Bedeschi SpA, best known for its comprehensive line of mineral bulk handling equipment and systems, particularly in the cement, clay and related sectors, has acquired OMG-MGM, an Italian engineering company specialised in the production and revamping of container cranes.
The OMG MGM (ex-Magrini Galileo Meccaniche) product range includes ship-to-shore container cranes and RTGs and RMGs for CY and IY applications. The most recent new STS cranes include two 62m (23-wide) outreach, 43m lift height cranes on a rail span of just 18m for LSCT La Spezia (WorldCargo News, March 2015, p1). The company has undertaken many crane enlarging and revamping projects in Italy and elsewhere.
Bedeschi says: "OMG MGM will, from now on, build and test all the main key mechanical components of its cranes in the Italian Bedeschi workshop, which will offer the latest technologies tools and facilities for the perfect machining and testing of these special items.
"This is a new further step forward for the Bedeschi Group, which is thus enlarging its already vast range of products for port industries, being able to offer complete and integrated solutions perfectly matching every customer requirement."
Financial terms have not been disclosed. The acquisition does not include the water screening/water treatment side of the OMG-MGM business.
