The Key Elements of the MGN Project

THE HUMAN TEAM

        * Human capital is the primary resource of the MGN project
        * Corporate social responsibility
        * Personnel training
        * Principles of co-existence
        * Safe work environments
        * Comprehensive health of our team members

QUALITY

        * MGN is committed to the quality standards established in the sectors for which our products are manufacture

        * With the philosophy of a service provider, one of our company’s strategic objectives is to offer a product tailored to the needs of our customers.

        * Production and quality tools based on LEAN MANUFACTURING allow us to make continuous improvements to all of these processes.

        * Chemical and metrological laboratories, a quality and engineering laboratory, as well as railway dynamics studies and analyses, allow us to work closely with customers, suppliers, technology centres, etc.

        * We create a product on the market that reflects the MGN brand image of total quality and guarantee
 

R+D+I

        * Technological innovation is a key factor in MGN’s business activity.
        * Under its strategic plan, MGN promotes collaboration between leading representatives, businesses, universities and technology centres at both the national and international level.
        * Our position as a company is due in part to a consistent focus on innovation.
        * Technology and innovation are what drive our growth.
        * Each year we invest around 10% of our turnover in R+D+I activities.
        * The study of state-of-the-art materials, dynamic simulations, shock, rail stress and bogie tests, ensure the reliability of MGN products.

THE ENVIRONMENT

        * The train is the most sustainable means of transport, and our parts provide the added value that help make it so.
        * At MGN we see the environment as one of the key factors of our strategic plan, and through R+D we work to offer a greener, more efficient and competitive product that respects the objectives of the Kyoto Protocol and European targets for reducing noise and CO2 emissions by the year 2020.
        * With the use of environmentally friendly raw materials, the idea of a sustainable future, and the green footprint of the railway, we are moving toward balanced progress: clean, ecological and free of emissions.

Service and Flexibility

The size of our enterprise means we can provide flexible solutions that are adapted to each order, producing both large as well as small batches with the same level of commitment and adherence to deadlines.
 
MGN offers professionalism, continuous innovation and a flexible production framework to integrate rubber and rubber-metal parts into the most advanced transport, machinery, structural and other systems. Specialising in vibration control and shock absorption systems, we help make vehicle transport a more comfortable experience for users and an adequate means for shipping goods over medium and long distances. We reduce noise and vibrations to meet applicable laws.

Our diversity in machinery, the versatility of our employees and the adaptability of our installations for different processes gives us the flexibility to produce both large as well as small batches, adjusting to the client’s schedule.

Chemistry, Engineering and R+D+I

We have accumulated and developed a wealth of know-how through the systematic work of our expert staff and the R+D projects carried out with research centres and universities.
In addition to work on new rubber formulations to meet various requests, the following are some of the projects in which we are involved:

Extreme Conditions Rubber Project:
"The study and development of materials for the manufacture of rubber-metal parts subject to extreme conditions.” The project was financed by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, MICINN, to develop rubber materials that offer the best performance within a wide range of operating conditions, both mechanical and chemical.

Safe Rubber Project (replacement of ETU)
MGN forms part of a consortium of companies, research centres and European universities involved in the Safe Rubber Project, which has received funding under the European Union’s FP7 framework programme to develop a new, safer and multi-functional accelerator curative molecule in the vulcanisation of chloroprene rubber. The objective is to replace the current ETU-based accelerators with a new one that is less harmful to health and safer for the environment.

MGN is Involved

Since 2005, MGN has been actively involved on the AEDHE R+D Commission — a forum of the Henares Business Association for the transfer of technology, exchange of information, and promotion of innovative activities between companies — and the Spanish Railway Technology Platform (PTFE), a technology forum composed of the major players of the railway sector at the national level.
In addition, we are members of the Spanish Railway Association, MAFEX, which is backed by the more than 30 years of experience and prestige of the AGEX GROUP to which it belongs, as well as the public agencies and institutions with whom it collaborates.
MGN is a member of the rubber manufacturing consortium COFACO which has been formed since 2004 by processors of pneumatic and non-pneumatic tyres, producers and distributors of raw materials for the rubber industry, and manufacturers, marketers and distributors of machinery for the rubber industry.
