Fifty-four companies, more than 10,000 square meters, two different pavilions. These are the key numbers for Gimav member participation in Glasstec 2016. From September 20th to 23rd, the leading Italian manufacturers of machinery, accessories and special products for glass will participate in this year’s industry trade show of choice.

The Italian contingent will exhibit in pavilions 16 and 13 – pavilion 16 will be dedicated entirely to the world of at glass and accessories and pavilion 13 to hollow glass, with the top-of-the-line Italian products. The Düsseldorf event will allow Italy’s glass machinery industry to showcase its newest products, top trends and most innovative applications for the international market.

For our member companies, fresh from a brilliant 2015 (confirmed by data from the Gimav Study Center), Glasstec promises to be the ideal platform for spotlighting the spectacular performance feats achieved by their products. The Italian businesses aim to differentiate and promote their cutting-edge product lines, emphasizing their ongoing quest for innovation and how this leads to qualitative excellence and, at the same time, heretofore unimaginable cost efficiencies.

Italian companies are also dependable partners for an international customer base that relies on Made-in-Italy products thanks, in part, to the “unlimited” customization options they offer, engineered to meet the most diverse needs. This flexibility is informed by the natural tendency of Italian businesses to listen, compare notes and work with their customers.
Gimav member companies are delighted and gratified to participate in Glasstec with their flagship products.
