Stratoglass is one of the companies that have made the history of quality glass in Lombardy, and in northern Italy. More than 30 years of activity characterized by a methodical and constant growth, promoted and managed methodically by two brothers and two sisters, all directly involved in the company.
The collaboration relationship between Stratoglass and Mappi begins in 2009, with the purchase of an ATS 2200x4200, the furnace that allows the company to deepen its specialization in the production of high-performance insulating glass, armored, tempered and stratified glass.
Stratoglass demonstrates how it is possible to trigger a virtuous circle that links products of excellence, increasingly important orders, growth. We asked Patrizia Bau the reasons for this success “Certainly the will and commitment were fundamental, but even more the ability to adapt to market changes, to innovate and to invest constantly. Without this there is no future ".
Patrizia continues “We are fortunate to know the market in several aspects, linked to our production, which includes both construction and refrigeration and furnishing. In every field there is an ever-increasing complexity of requests, in terms of design, shapes but also technical features, colors. In more than a few cases there is a real partnership with the architect and the designer, who has very clear ideas about what he wants and expects us to be able to achieve it. "
"One thing we notice is that customers are increasingly aware that glass is an investment, and that it must be done accurately, bearing in mind quality, reliability and energy savings. The improvement of the standards is a path that does not stop, for example, if today 3mm glass is a standard of excellence it is likely that as soon as possible we will be asked to work thicknesses of 2mm. "
A second Mappi furnace, a very modern ATS 4.0 1800x4200, has been active in Stratoglass for the past few months. Let's hear what Patrizia says about this choice:
"The first thing we can say about Mappi is that there is always, whenever it is needed it is here and is committed to solving every problem, which fortunately rarely happens. But it is important to know that you can count on a ready and safe support. Today around 99% of our production turns around the hardening furnace, if we could not count on reliability and constant quality it would be a serious problem. We were thinking just a few days ago about the fact that even two furnaces begin to be close to us in order to satisfy customer requests. It is not said that sooner or later we will find ourselves saying 'there is no two without three'. Moreover in Mappi we find a way of doing that is also ours, the constant will to progress, to anticipate the evolution of the market, not to be satisfied. In this the new ATS 4.0 is an irreplaceable resource, a furnace that brings us a step forward in the future ".
