Italian Hollow Glass Group Participation in Vitrum 2015

At the International trade show specialized in machinery, equipment and systems for flat and hollow glass processing to be held on 6-9 October 2015 at Fiera Milano in Rho, hollow glass will return to the limelight with a group stand devoted to this important sector of the Italian glass industry.

A number of leading Gimav member companies will be there with the finest examples of Italian hollow glass processing and production in a dedicated area where tableware, bottles, special glass for pharmaceutical use and containers will be showcased.   Italian hollow glass processing machinery is recognized and appreciated throughout the world for the excellent performance it guarantees: sophisticated processing, the highest quality and efficiency make it possible to outstrip the competition on the international marketplace, scoring excellent results and once again demonstrating the strong export drive of the entire Italian glass industry.Gimav figures for the industry confirmed a good export trend in 2014.

As a result of increased sales in Europe, especially to the non-EU countries (+33.56% versus 2013), Europe was the leading customer for hollow glass companies accounting for 57.7% of total exports by the sector. During 2014, exports to Asia picked up as well (+5.01% in value versus 2013), especially to China and the Middle East, Saudi Arabia and Iran. France, Russia and China were the 3 main export markets for Italian hollow glass processing equipment.

Vitrum 2015, the topmost European event of the year for the glass industry which attracts the trade from 28 countries, is the ideal showcase for a group exhibition: “It is an important, not-to-be-missed opportunity to present the latest innovations from our sector and to show the world that Italian hollow glass continues to be high quality and high tech”, commented Michele Gusti, CEO of Ocmi SpA and President of Gimav Hollow Glass Group.

An open space at the 19th exhibition will host companies that are leading international producers in their fields, a compact group of successful businesses with cutting-edge solutions for all steps in hollow glass processing. “The decision to take part as a group in this edition of Vitrum, which is a premier international showcase, is also because this year the international spotlights are on Italy and Milan with the Universal Exposition”, ended Michele Gusti.
