Glass Alliance comprises Fenzi, Alu-Pro and Rolltech, three leading companies offering outstanding quality and reliability in their respective sectors: polysulphide and butyl as well as hot melt and polyurethane sealants, spacers made of aluminum, steel, stainless steel as well as steel combined with polycarbonate. The main objective of the network is to improve service in the industry and to offer the latest technologies to the glass community.
The products that have contributed to the international success of the network were created as a result of collaboration between the Centers of Research and Development of the three founding companies. Strong investments to stimulate the development of forefront technologies have led to the engineering of the most innovative sealants and warm edge spacers. The quest for new solutions that integrate optimum performance with a low environmental impact has contributed to improving the performance of insulating glass, thus enhancing its vast potential.
The high level of specialization acquired by the three companies has largely contributed to the market leadership of Glass Alliance. The three companies are complementary, they do not overlap each other but rather work synergistically to ensure consistent quality.
Fenzi, Alu-Pro and Rolltech offer their clients everything they need at all times, and across the globe. Their manufacturing sites also work as product sorting centers, joined by sales subsidiaries and an extensive network of agents and distributors. The Glass Alliance network employs about 500 people in a dozen of factories, manufacturing sites and sales hubs of the three companies in all continents. They offer nearly total coverage and because of this most manufacturers of IG glass worldwide consistently use among their components at least one of the products distributed by Glass Alliance.
The leadership of Glass Alliance is recognized worldwide and is gradually strengthening as the organization increases its international presence through the opening of new markets and manufacturing sites worldwide. Certain events over the past year have also been testimony of the organization’s vitality, such as the new production lines at Fenzi’s plant in China (with the Group actively doing business in the Asian market for some years), and the construction of a new Alu-Pro and Fenzi production plant in Lipetsk, near Moscow. Looking to emerging markets, however, does not necessarily imply overlooking the developed ones. Vetrim, for example, a Polish company in the Fenzi group that produces aluminum spacers for insulating glass, in addition to marketing products manufactured by members of the network, is set to exploit the vast potential of the Eastern European market. Also worthy of mention is last year’s inauguration of Fenzi Alu-Pro Iberica, a one-source supplier in Spain for the distribution and storage of sealants and spacers for IG glass. www.glassalliance.com
