Processing glass means LiSEC. Basta.

There are places that have a special meaning – which can be for various reasons. The small picturesque town of Almè, north-west of Bergamo in Italy does so.

It is the home town of Vetreria Brembana, the first customer of LiSEC in Italy. A success story of its own, no doubt.   

25 employees in this family-owned company process glass mainly for manufacturers of windows made of pvc, aluminium and wood. Its customers are all Italian, only a small amount of the precision processed glass sheets is exported to Switzerland. 

“We started cooperating in 1983, says Laura Bonesi, who manages the company together with her brother, Fabio Bonesi. “In that year we bought the first LiSEC sealing roboter on the Italian market”, she adds. ”And from that moment on we have cooperated very closely together.” Basically the first glass processing machines LiSEC sold in Italy were delivered to Vetreria Brembana. Over the years, the 5.000 square metres company with an annual turnover of about five million Euros has regularly invested in state of the art machinery and software from LiSEC. The machine park now includes two insulating glass processing lines, one KSR and one KSU glass edge processing center, several spacer bending machines, a combined cutting table for both float and laminated glass and a float cutting table in double bridge design.

About ten years ago, Vetreria Brembana restructured its production with the aim of reducing the number of errors overall and reducing the time needed for order processing as well. The management headed for a delivery oriented production: the glass sheets need to be produced in the same sequence as the delivery sequence – hence: no manual handling of glass any longer and no time lost collecting the glass sheets that are part of the same delivery but distributed all over the company. Vetreria Brembana made this switch successfully using machines and software tools from LiSEC. “We always compare solutions from different suppliers. LiSEC is unique to us, though. Since the company has its roots in glass processing and also knows how to handle larger projects offering both machinery and software from one single source”.  

Also in other occasions, LiSEC proved its operators’ know-how and proposed the right solution for Vetreria Brembana. Be it when the company was looking for the most advanced solution in the market to process plastic spacers or when the management was searching for a solution to fill glass units with gas without drilling holes into the spacer frame.

Laura Bonesi: “All the choices we have made so far have been in favor of LiSEC and appeared to be the right ones – the solutions from LiSEC allow us to sustainably grow our business and to strengthen our position.” When asked about the future plans and the role LiSEC will play in the company’s development, the business woman promptly replies: “If you want to play a role in this niche, you need to invest in people and machines. LiSEC has supported us since many years. I cannot imagine a future without the expertise of LiSEC”. Seems like Vetreria Brembana is going to move a lot in Almè …
