At the end of the 50’s Corrado Tadolini, a man with a lively creativity and intelligence, begins to develop a range of flat rubber drive belts and hence starts his own “corner shop business”. Megadyne is born!
The 80’s are a turning point in the company’s development with the advent of polyurethane materials combined with the natural technical / engineering skills of the Tadolini family. They embraced the new technology and developed the moulded and open ended power transmission belts products.

Megadyne becomes a market leader in the polyurethane belting sector and builds on the success obtained on the Italian market; it starts to develop a network of “sister companies” around Europe which was closely followed by outlets worldwide, from China to Brazil.
2000's Transmission system
A new millennium brings a new chapter in the Megadyne history. The acquisition of a rubber production facility in Spain (ex Pirelli/Dayco) combined with a pulley production plant near Milan.
This development allows Megadyne to offer the complete drive package in synchronous belt drives, combined with a highly competent technical, production and sales function dedicated to the customers different and challenging needs.
The acquisition of Jason Industrial is a key step guaranteeing a solid commercial and productive presence in the Americas.
Equally important are the establishment of a polyurethane belt manufacturing plant in Qingdao and the acquisition of Ningbo Rubber Factory, giving Megadyne a powerful productive base in Asia.
In order to consolidate its market leading position, Megadyne strengthens its efforts to support a substantial organic growth and to scout the market for more strategic acquisitions that would enhance its offering.
