This is the 2017 of FOREL, a year with the “+” sign in sales, thanks to the confirmed appreciation of our traditional customers but also to the increasing trust of the new ones.
2017 will be remembered in FOREL especially for the development of special Jumbo lines, capable of processing very large and heavy glass sheets specifically required for high performance facades: part of the important projects successfully carried out by the Company last year.
The growth was also “physical”: in 2017, indeed, FOREL completed important enlargements of both office and production areas.
The positive moment required also an enhancement on human resources: between 2016 and the end of 2017, FOREL hired many new employees (in production, sales, administration and marketing departments).
Currently, the company employs more than 200 people directly, and over 300 people in partner companies and agencies. Other recruitments are expected before the end of 2018.
Therefore, important investments in the plant, in the machinery and in the people, after the achievement of a very important goal:
“We reached our 40th years of activity. Once, there was only an idea and a good young mechanic, today there is a worldwide known brand” says Fortunato Vianello, founder and CEO of FOREL “Though the investment done, our patents and our know-how, we want to grow more”.
Established in 1976, FOREL has two facilities in Vallio di Roncade and Meolo (Italy), a sales and service branch in Minneapolis (Minnesota, USA) and 21 Agencies worldwide: FOREL machines are now operative in over 60 Countries.
The product range includes machinery for vertical cutting of laminated glass, automatic sorting systems, vertical edging, drilling and milling, PVB lamination and insulating glass production.
