GIMAV is the Association of Italian manufacturers and suppliers of machinery, equipment and special products for glass processing.
Set up in 1980 by a small group of businessmen, Gimav plays a fundamental role in the entire glass industry both nationally and internationally.
As a member of Confindustria and Federmacchine, during its 40 years of activity, Gimav has considerably strengthened its representative presence in the entire glass processing industry and now plays an indispensable role in relations with all private and public institutions.
The sales volume of GIMAV member companies, accounts for approx. 80% of the industry's total turnover and for 77% of total exports by Italian manufacturers of machinery, accessories and special products for glass processing.
As a result of its efficacious and creditworthy activities, the Association enjoys the outstanding loyalty of its members, whose number has been growing steadily over the years.
The first members were later joined by large industrial groups and, above all, by small and medium-sized companies which are the true face and the backbone of the industry.
The importance of each participant, mutual respect and the fact that everybody is given the opportunity to participate and contribute to the Association's political and management decisions have spawned a cohesive group with a strong international nature.
