The MECALAC Group offers a wide range of innovative compact construction equipment for today’s urban construction sites

MECALAC's aim is to offer compact class construction equipment with superior performance concerning flexibility, speed and process innovation. Almost all products are designed for 3D compactness and optimized attachment- and tool carrier. MECALAC products are designed for highest fuel efficiency and environmental protection, whereby we intentionally optimize the application processes of our users. Good examples are the multifunctionality of most of our products to reduce the number of machines at the construction site and the Swing Loader concept to significantly reduce maneuvering operations at the worksite.

Our manufacturing facilities are located in France, in Germany and in Turkey. We apply with good reasons a high integration of manufacturing. Robot assisted steel fabrication as well as manufacturing of turning joints and cylinders are part of our inhouse manufacturing processes.

The company has a leading position with Mobile Excavators in France and received numerous patents, design- and innovation awards. Based on a strong culture in the company,  we motivate our employees to always decide in favor of: 

Quality - Reliability - Trustworthiness - Reactivity

In distribution we prefer to partner with process- and service oriented dealerships. Own distribution subsidiaries are located in France for the Paris region and in Katovice for Poland. The Groupe MECALAC S.A. has minority interests in selected dealerships in Europe.
