About Us

MZ PROJECT was formed as a company in 1987, the brainchild of the two partners Mazzola e Zappa who, having gained considerable international experience in the field of woodworking machinery, had the insight to start up in an almost uncharted market, where traditional ways of working were prevalent. So Mazzola and Zappa decided to combine their respective business and technical skills and bring the technology of pattern cutting up to date with increasingly automated machines.   Alvaro-e-Armando

The company now has decades of experience in the design and construction of woodworking machines and, to guarantee the continuity of the business, the second generation has been working enthusiastically alongside the two founders for several years

doveThe operational base, with 1,500 m2 of workshop + 200 m2 of office space, is located in Italy, at Mariano Comense (between Milan and Como), an area that is a manufacturing powerhouse for woodworking. The ongoing contact and dialogue with end customers and their needs have acted – and still do – as a great incentive for improving existing products and finding new solutions.


MZ PROJECT machines are intended for a very varied customer base, from small craftsmen to major industries and from sawmills to chair or furniture manufacturers, wherever there is a solid wood component, be it straight or contoured.

The achievements and experience accumulated over the years have enabled us to extend the operating range of the existing machines, moving away from traditional methods of chair manufacture. The materials handled today with MZ PROJECT machines are no longer limited to solid wood but include cork, plastic, aluminium, MDF, particle board, fibreboard and composite materials.

The sales and technical departments are at your disposal for any further information, by phone, fax or e-mail.
