A total of 13,000 square meters of exhibition space - hall 16 in its entirety for flat glass and part of hall 13 for hollow glass - will allow Italian companies to showcase and present to international buyers the brand new products they designed in response to the latest market demands.
Within the machine tools and industrial equipment market, Italian machinery and accessories for glass processing have always been global leaders, and transformed this sector into a "Made in Italy" niche market. Machinery designed in Italy is famous and appreciated worldwide, thanks to its perfect combination of technological innovation, product quality and prompt technical support, which make it rise above all international competition. These distinctive features and the strong participation in worldwide trade expos Gimav has always strived to promote are the winning cards that will allow Italian companies to overcome this period of general crisis in the industry. Glasstec 2010 is the next occasion for taking full advantage of all business opportunities the market has to offer.
Gimav at Glasstec 2010: hall 16, stand D 36.
Gimav is the Association of Italian manufacturers and suppliers of machinery, equipment and special products for glass processing. Set up in 1980 by a small group of businessmen, Gimav plays a fundamental role in the entire glass industry both nationally and internationally. As a member of Confindustria, Federvarie and Federmacchine, during its 25 years of activity, Gimav has considerably strengthened its representative presence in the entire glass processing industry and now plays an indispensable role in relations with all private and public institutions. The sales volume of GIMAV member companies, accounts for approx. 80% of the industry’s total turnover and for 77% of total exports by Italian manufacturers of machinery, accessories and special products for glass processing. As a result of its efficacious and creditworthy activities, the Association enjoys the outstanding loyalty of its members, whose number has been growing steadily over the years. The first members were later joined by large industrial groups and, above all, by small and medium-sized companies which are the true face and the backbone of the industry. The importance of each participant, mutual respect and the fact that everybody is given the opportunity to participate and contribute to the Association’s political and management decisions have spawned a cohesive group with a strong international nature.
