For over 20 years Mattei has been providing Winton its rotary blade compressors, helping to boost their success in time, thanks to the high efficiency and ensured reliability of its plants. Many leading civil engineering and service companies in the UK appreciate Winton solutions installed on a wide range of vehicles ranging from light commercial to heavy goods.

“The acquisition of Winton – stated Mr. Giulio Contaldi, Ing. Enea Mattei SpA CEO – is positive news for future growth. Over the last five years Mattei has strategically developed a range of specialist engineered solutions, and we have become a major supplier to the rail sector, as well as the hybrid and electric vehicles markets.

The addition of Winton’s “on-board energy” products will enhance our offering, leading to many new opportunities for the local and global Mattei team. The Winton brand is known as a synonym of quality and efficiency in the UK and we intend to replicate this success throughout the world”.

“Working with Mattei over the years – commented Andy Gear, General Manager Winton Engineering – allowed us to appreciate the efficiency and robustness of its rotary vane compressors, developing an extremely positive partnership. Mattei’s acquisition is added-value for our customers in terms of support for the research and development of increasingly more innovative solutions, aimed to help our customers meet the more demanding environmental and operating challenges they face”.

Mattei would like to thank Carlo Nicolai, from Nicolai Partners, for the assistance and consulting provided during the acquisition phase.
