One principle, unlimited possibilities

At the very beginning of its success story, item sked itself one simple question: How can you build custom mechanical engineering plants quicker and more efficiently without compromising on strength?

The answer – using aluminium instead of steel and screws instead of welds.

This revelation gave rise to the first universal aluminium profile with grooves and thus the basis of the item MB Building Kit System. Just three processing steps are required with aluminium profiles. Moreover, aluminium is much lighter than steel yet still extremely strong. Straightforward fasteners, meanwhile, ensure modifications can be made with ease, including after installation.

Components from the MB Building Kit System’s early days are still in use even now and can be effortlessly combined with new item products – both present and future.

Even when it first launched, the system was already fully compatible with modern-day CAD technology, as all constructions can be continuously adapted.
