Cmc’s rich history began in 1901, with the formation of a cooperative comprised of a group of 35 masons (“Muratori”) from Ravenna, Italy. In 1909, the cooperative merged with local cement workers (“Cementisti”), to form the present company, Cooperativa Muratori & Cementisti C.M.C. di Ravenna Società Cooperativa (Cmc).
In 2011 Cmc acquired LM Heavy Civil Construction, LLC (LMH), purchasing 100% of the shares in the company.
Cmc realizes 90% of its consolidated annual revenue in construction works. Thanks to technical and management ability, economic and financial stability as well as to the extensive experience acquired all over the world in great infrastructure works, Cmc ranks among the few Italian general contractors qualified for executing the highest class of contracts. Cmc has a permanent staff of about 500 people, three quarters of which are also members of the cooperative, and currently employs over 9,000 people worldwide.
During the post-war period of the 40’s and 50’s, Cmc took part in Italy’s major reconstruction process contributing to rebuilding its vital infrastructure and the construction of petrochemical plants in Ravenna and Sicily, works on the port of Ravenna, and numerous electrical power plants including the largest in Italy, which is located at the river Po delta with a generating capacity of 2,580 MW.
During the 1960’s, Cmc began constructing transportation infrastructure improvements through their involvement with the first major Italian highways.
In 1975 Cmc’s growth continued through opportunities in overseas markets in the Middle East, Africa, and Far East, particularly construction silos and flour mills, roads and dams, infrastructure and industrial development.
By the late 1980’s Cmc diversified its overseas activities through new and more sophisticated specialization in tunneling and hydraulic engineering sectors.
Today, Cmc is ranked among ENR’s 2016 Top 250 Global Contractors, as it continues to grow through the delivery of complex projects, worldwide, including the underground sector (subway in Milan, railways for high speed trains, hydroelectric plants in the Philippines, a syphon under the Suez canal in Egypt, highway tunnels in Taiwan and more than 150 km of hydraulic tunnels in the People’s Republic of China); and the building sector (new pavilions for the Milan Fair Ground, the Agricultural Food Center of Turin, the United Nations Conference Center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, five-star hotels in Asmara, Eritrea and in Khartoum, Sudan).
