Mac Port was created in 1987 based on the vision of Giordano Bilotti who, working as an operator at the Port of Ravenna (Italy), had the intuition to establish a company specialised in the modern mechanisation of port areas. The sons of Giordano Bilotti, first Matteo and then Fabio, started working at Mac Port, leading the company to become more structured and stand out in the industry's business network. The company starts and implements numerous quality plans, investing in the training of highly specialised workers, with the technical competences and a unique expertise of the machines. Transparency in relationships, health and safety at work are the core values of the company.

In 2009 Mac Port takes a fundamental step from a strategic business and technical standpoint and partners up with the Liebherr Group. The company becomes the sole distributor in Italy for sales, after sales and spare parts for Liebherr Maritime Cranes.

The first delivery was a Liebherr Mobile Harbour crane type LHM 320 in 2009. Mac Port sets up a warehouse specialised in sensitive spare parts, essential to overcome serious machine downtime. Since then, Mac Port managed to deliver more than 80 Liebherr machines to satisfied customers in Italy and Bulgaria. In 2011, Mac Port has also become a distributor of Liebherr’s Earthmoving division.

“Running a successful business for more than 30 years is just exceptional. Launching and further developing a prosperous company is an indication for strongest commitment and highest professionalism. Both organisations, Mac Port and Liebherr, consider leadership in quality and innovation as their major goals. We devote our efforts to best performance in order to stay one-step ahead. These high standards always determined the corporate culture of our companies and they will provide a firm foundation for our future success. All we can say to such an achievement is ‘Congratulations’,” says Leopold Berthold, Managing Director at Liebherr Rostock.
