The May Cheong Group (MCG), manufacturers of die-cast and R/C replica brands Maisto and Bburago, has signed an exclusive agreement with Ferrari. The multi-year deal, which commences in January, grants MCG the exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute Ferrari replicas throughout the world.
MCG has had an ongoing relationship with Ferrari for more than 25 years. Bburago, a die-cast brand from Italy that MCG acquired in 2005, and which is celebrating its 40th anniversary next year, also has a lengthy history with Ferrari. Next year’s planned launch includes four ranges of products within the Bburago brand: Signature Series, Racing, Race and Play, and Ferrari Kids.
In total, more than 100 cars will be launched prior to the middle of next year. Additionally, Maisto will continue to offer Ferrari model kits and R/C products, as well as other die-cast replicas.
“We are extremely pleased and humbled that we were able to reach this agreement with Ferrari, the pre-eminent automobile brand in the world,” says Roger Ngan, CEO of MCG. “For 47 years, our company has been laying the groundwork, establishing a worldwide distribution network, creating state-of-the-art factories, and most importantly, developing strong relationships that enable us to produce fantastic die-cast replicas. We look to do even more in the coming years.”
More news regarding the products, including scale, titles, and availability, will be available on the Bburago website later this year.
