Sponsored by the National Glass Association, the 17th edition of GBA is the largest North American trade event for the glass, window and door industry.
The Italian companies will showcase their top glass processing technologies through their participation in the group area, organized by Gimav, in partnership with ITA (Italian Trade Agency). The stand area, that occupies over 720m2, will host live demonstrations, offering a “hands-on” experience of some of the top-of-the-line Italian products.
Italy’s participation is especially meaningful in a market, like the United States, that is the primary destination for its machinery, systems, accessories and special products for glass processing.
As indicated in data processed by the Gimav Study Center, in 2018 US industry professionals again showed their preference for Italian products, acknowledging their added value in terms of innovation and product customization, as well as the efficacy of after-sales service that Gimav companies are able to ensure, thanks to widespread coverage of the US with the possibility of 24/7 guaranteed service. In fact, the US is the main client for Made in Italy glass processing machinery, special products and accessories, with a growing share of overall revenue compared to the previous year..
