HSC is a company with high potentiality, that operates in niches of the global market of glass containers for cosmetics and perfumery, and also for food and beverages. HSC supplies its customers primarily with a wide range of personalised products. HSC is located in a strategic geographical area, both because of the potentiality for growth of the Polish market, and because of its location in between of the traditional EU markets and of the high-growing Eastern Europe markets.
Franco Grisan, President and Managing Director of Zignago Vetro and new President of HSC stated: “This transaction announced today is fully consistent with the Zignago Vetro's strategy, which aims to grow and strengthen both organically and by acquisition and to increase its flexibility with a view of broadening its offer and its reference markets. Receiving the parent company's know-how will permit a comfortable and profitable development for HSC and will allow Zignago Vetro to expand its own production process by integrating manufacturing processes that are currently not being performed. These new synergies between companies of the Group and the direct presence in markets that are very interesting for us, will increase the value of our company.”
