Late 19th century

Three pioneers of the Italian industry are born: Edison (1883), Montecatini (1888) and Fiat (1889), industrial groups whose engineering divisions are at the core of the current Maire Tecnimont Group.

1940s - 1950s

In the Netherlands and India, the companies Stamicarbon (1947) and ICB (1958) are born, with important technological and engineering skills.

1971 - 1973

The Italian engineering companies Selas Italia (1971) are born. Later on, they would become KTI, Fiat Engineering (1972), formerly the Fiat group's Building and Plant service; and Tecnimont (1973) inside the Montedison Group.

1983 - 2003 

Fabrizio Di Amato launches his entrepreneurial project. Over the years, through a process of internal growth and acquisitions, the Maire Group is consolidated.

2004 - 2007

Maire makes key acquisitions: Fiat Engineering (2004) and Tecnimont (2005), thus consolidating the Maire Tecnimont Group, that was listed on the Milan Stock Exchange since November 2007.

2008 - 2010

The Group expands internationally, completing the acquisition of Tecnimont ICB in India (2008), the Dutch company Stamicarbon (2009), and Technip KTI (2010), today KT - Kinetics Technology.

2011 - 2015

The Group's turnaround: parallel to the recapitalization, the Top Management is reorganized, and a business repositioning plan is launched together with a deleveraging program.

2016 - 2018

A new phase for business growth: the Group opts for a technology-driven strategy in the field of hydrocarbon transformation, while gradually adopting renewable energy production and green chemistry.
