After hundreds of meetings, countless smiling faces and steady handshakes and many new opportunities later, the Glaston team is back home from meeting the glass industry friends at glasstec 2022.
Our exhibition motto at glasstec was “Shaping the sustainable future of glass”. By following this motto, Glaston offered during the four intensive days deep insights into the latest developments demonstrating new exciting opportunities for the architectural, automotive, appliance and solar industries.
Since the previous glasstec trade fair four years ago, much has happened at Glaston, such as the acquisition of Bystronic glass. At glasstec 2022, the “new” Glaston stood together as an even stronger team with a more extensive offering of glass processing products that support a wide range of customers at the very core of glass processing.
“Meeting customers and partners in person after a long time is something we’ve all waited for. Joining glasstec as a unified Glaston team with an extended offering covering a wide range of insulating glass, heat treatment and automotive and display glass technologies was a great experience. In addition to good discussions and seeing happy faces, we had a very successful four days with new insights, new encounters and strengthening existing relationships,” says Sasu Koivumäki, CSO at Glaston Corporation.
“It was a wonderful new experience to attend glasstec for the first time after joining Glaston as CEO last year. This was really a great place to meet and collaborate with the global industry players who had gathered together. Most of all I enjoyed meeting and discussing with so many customers from all over the world in just a couple of days. And of course, it was really good to get together with our global Glaston team and get to know the team better”, says Anders Dahlblom, CEO at Glaston Corporation.
