The Italian companies will showcase their top glass processing technologies at GlassBuild America, held Sept. 17-19, through their participation in the group area, organized by Gimav, in partnership with the Italian Trade Agency. The stand area, which occupies over 7,750 square feet, will host live demonstrations, offering a “hands-on” experience of some of the top-of-the-line Italian products.

Italy’s participation is especially meaningful in a market like the U.S., which is the primary destination for its machinery, systems, accessories and special products for glass processing, say officials.

As indicated in data processed by the Gimav Study Center, in 2018 U.S. industry professionals again showed their preference for Italian products, acknowledging their added value in terms of innovation and product customization, as well as the efficacy of after-sales service that Gimav companies are able to ensure, thanks to widespread coverage of the U.S. with the possibility of 24/7 guaranteed service. In fact, the U.S. is the main client for made in Italy glass processing machinery, special products and accessories, with a growing share of overall revenue compared to the previous year.
