“For the exceptional technical skills with which he has guided the development of numerous innovative projects in the field of mechanics and for the entrepreneurial spirit thanks to which he has founded and directs a company of international level of sure economic and social impact in the territory in which it is rooted“. These are the reasons why the Magnificent Rector of the Politecnico di Torino awarded Amilcare Merlo an Honorary Degree in Mechanical Engineering.
This is a highly prestigious award reserved for those who have distinguished themselves, particularly deserved for the industrialist and knight Amilcare Merlo, founder and president of the group of the same name in Cervasca, a leading company in the telescopic handler sector.
Few are the personalities awarded the title “Honorary Engineer“, which therefore acquires a special value. Among them, we would like to remind you: Giovanni Agnelli, Enrico Mattei, Giorgetto Giugiaro and Sergio Marchionne.
