The number of Glass Group affiliates rises to 18: the first completely independent Italian group that brings together leading glass companies with decades of experience in the transformation of high quality insulating glass units around its brand. New entries, at the end of the first quarter of 2021, are the Cappelletti and Roleri glassworks in Piacenza; Glastebo of Bologna; Quidam of Cairo Montenotte (SV).

Glass Group’s goal is to” create a system “, through synergies and strategic partnerships, effectively designing a large supply chain hub” – comments Daniele Predari, President of Glass Group – “We are pleased to welcome 3 new leading affiliates to the group such as Cappelletti & Roleri, Glastebo and Quidam. We believe their addition also constitutes an opportunity for growth for the whole group that will benefit from their expertise and their driving force and, at the same time, will guarantee them to grow, in terms of size, know-how and as a reference point for the flat glass supply chain “.

The supply chain, in particular, is today represented by the glass factories, with which the group has a fruitful collaboration that has lasted for years, from the main partners, the companies producing complementary products to glass for the production of double glazing (Fenzi, Industrie Pellini, Technoform) and the flat glass processing industries that are the driving force of our group, which managed to bring together actors who were linked by purely commercial purposes and who today instead share a common growth project. Glass Group is a “laboratory” that looks at the economic and production challenges that await all companies in the supply chain, from the largest to the smallest.

News also on the business partner front: with Sapiens spa, an employment agency, which joins the Glass Group business partners, the aim is to promote the employment of young people in the industries of the sector. With Sapiens Spa, Glass Group will collaborate in the creation of a training center for specialized personnel to be included in the glass processing industries with the aim of allowing young people to be able to enter companies with adequate knowledge of the material and production processes. This is a project that has a double objective: on the one hand to train specialized personnel by accompanying young people in the world of glass and on the other hand to respond to the needs of companies that increasingly need specialized personnel.

We recall that the group was formed thanks to the aggregation of 5 founders (Mornagoglass Srl, Predari Vetri Spa, Vetraria Pescini Srl, Vetreria Romagna Srl, Vetreria Valfon Srl) and today boasts 13 affiliates (Aluvetro, Vetreria Lucana di Vetromat Srl, Vetreria Deserto Srl, Vetreria Biava, Podda Vetri Srl, Termovetro Sud Srl, Vitrum & Glass Srl, Vetreria Tacca Srl, Vetropadana Srl, Guidi Glass Srl and – precisely – Cappelletti & Roleri, Glastebo and Quidam).

Glastebo International is a young, dynamic company that looks to the future with great determination whose target sectors are construction, furniture, interior design, boating, defense, aeronautics, automotive and biomedical industry. “Glastebo International is pleased and honored to join the Glass Group and share its important ambitions and mission. – declares Tarik El Ouariti, president of the Glastebo Board of DirectorsThe enhancement of technologies, know-how and investments fully embraces our work philosophy and we are confident that the synergies created by this large group can effectively promote the Italian Glass Industry and the excellence of which the group is composed. << The things you really believe in always come true, believing something makes it possible >> said Sir Frank Lloyd Wright and we believe it too ”.

QUIDAM has thirty years of experience in glass processing and is established in the production of special glass for building, architecture and design. “We are extremely pleased to be joining the Glass Group. – says Matteo Ferraiuolo, Director of Quidam SrlOur goal is to grow and to accredit our role in a constantly evolving and increasingly competitive global market. This is why it is essential to create a system through synergies, partnerships and sharing of know-how. The strength of Glass Group lies precisely in the possibility of making its voice heard not in favor of a single company, but of an entire production sector that is increasingly strategic also in terms of sustainability and environmental impact “.

Cappelletti & Roleri is a Piacenza company active in the market segment destined for the construction sector. “Vetreria Cappelletti & Roleri s.r.l. is pleased and honored to be part of the new Glass Group family. We hope and look forward to continuing our growth every day to achieve new goals – explains Claudio Roleri, director of Cappelletti & RoleriWe trust in the new opportunity presented, to be able to give voice to our production capabilities and our desire to always advance. more with more news. Our motto is: “It doesn’t matter if you move slowly, the important thing is that you don’t stop” and it is thanks to the meaning of these words, having never stopped, that today we have become part of a large group, which is believing in our work skills. Precisely for this reason our commitment will always be to be a valid support within the new team “.

In the current economic context, the companies belonging to the GLASS GROUP have joined together in order to restart with their 100 million turnovers, 22 factories and about 600 employees, which constitute a significant share of the Italian flat glass market, estimated at 880 million euros.
