Since 1842, MDT has been part of the beverage world history, but it has also helped write it. We have been pioneers in many distillation and evaporation technologies, becoming a reference in plant engineering for the production of alcohol, first in Italy and then abroad.


Back in 1842, Gerolamo Mussi founded in Milan the "F.lli Mussi fu Gerolamo", a manufacturing company designing and developing industrial plants in the chemical and food industry sectors.

For over a century and a half (six generations), the descendants of the founder led us until we became a reference in plant engineering for the production of alcohol.

First in Italy and then abroad, we have contributed to writing the history of the beverage world, counting among our customers some of the biggest production companies in the sector. 

Driven by the desire for constant and continuous improvement, we have pioneered many distillation and evaporation technologies that today represent the standard in the process industry. Over the years, we have introduced the chemical, pharmaceutical, and renewable energy sectors (bio-ethanol plants).

Our orientation towards continuous improvement becomes evident when, in the recent past, we became the property of the Barison Industry Group, which has contributed significantly to our development.

Today, we have a tested and solid organization that allows us to offer the same quality, technology, and attention to detail as always, along with efficient and timely management of your projects "turnkey" with a service that covers consulting, design, construction, installation, start-up, and after-sales service.

To guarantee the same service worldwide, we have established partnerships with the top players in the sector; this grants our customers the certainty of having technologically advanced systems and rapid, punctual, and efficient assistance.


During the 180 years of our history, our company has always been led by members of the Mussi family. Today, Barison Industry, also a family company, strengthens this tradition of the principles of the "family" to be the guide in identifying the company.

Our mission is to design and build technology solutions that create value for you.

We rely on technology and engineering innovation to meet the biggest challenges in our sectors. We develop and design high technology plants completely customized, identifying the specific needs of your projects to ensure that our plants meet your expectations in quality, efficiency, consumption, and durability.

We also consider respect, honesty, transparency, professional ethics, and the ability to maintain long-term relationships as fundamental values in establishing relationships that go beyond the mere customer-supplier relationship.

We believe that our duty is first of all to satisfy your needs, to design solutions, and to guarantee the highest technological level accompanied by increasing attention to economic, health and safety, and environmental protection aspects.
