Attendance to the area hosting Italian companies was robust», said Renata Gaffo, Director of Gimav - the Association of Italian manufacturers and suppliers of machinery, equipment and special products for glass processing - «The country is growing slowly and although the recession over the past two years has certainly not helped to speed up the development process, things seem to be looking good for our companies».
At this international event in New Delhi, Gimav has coordinated the collective participation of its associates in the flat glass sector in collaboration with ICE (Italian Institute for Foreign Trade): a concrete sign of the trust inspired by Made in Italy excellence spurring the growth of the glass industry in this country.
«India, despite the many difficulties deriving from its size and lack of infrastructures, is committed to large-scale development policies that will hopefully generate new job opportunities - continued Renata Gaffo – we are sowing to reap extraordinary results».
Within the machine tools and industrial equipment market, Italian machinery and accessories for glass processing have always been global leaders, and transformed this sector into a "Made in Italy" niche market. Machinery designed in Italy is famous and appreciated worldwide, thanks to its perfect combination of technological innovation, product quality and prompt technical support, which make it rise above all international competition.
These distinctive features and the strong participation in worldwide trade expos Gimav has always strived to promote are the winning cards that will allow Italian companies to take full advantage of all business opportunities the market has to offer.
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, Federvarie and Federmacchine, during its 25 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.
