The Fenzi Partecipazioni holding company has decided to invest in digital glass processing technologies by buying into the capital of Tecglass, the Spanish producer of very high-tech digital glass printing machinery and components. This strengthens the working partnership of the two leading companies, which have already been working together for some time, and demonstrates the interest of Fenzi in innovations applied to glass while significantly increasing the growth potential of Tecglass on the international marketplace.
Established in 2002 by a group of experts who had a good deal of experience and know-how in this industrial sector, Tecglass has recently studied, developed and produced a range of digital printing machinery specifically for the glass industry. The technology takes the place of traditional decorating methods and offers a simple, efficient tool for applying graphic motifs and photographs directly on glass: ceramic inks can be used on glass for indoor or outdoor use, on sheets of any size (from a minimum of 380x380 mm. to a maximum of 3,300x18,000 mm), with a solution for any type of sector and application.
The sophisticated Tecglass technology fits in perfectly with Fenzi’s strategic vision and natural propensity for innovation which, a company whose financial strength, managerial skills and international sales network, can make the most of the considerable opportunities offered by what is a currently very promising market.
Companies and experts having an interest in this particular glass processing method will now have a new mix of services and products that meet the needs of designers, architects and developers both in terms of aesthetic results and manufacturing capability: Tecglass digital technology is now closer to glass processing companies worldwide and can count on the professionalism and solidity that have set the Fenzi Group apart for more than 75 years.
Alessandro Fenzi, CEO of the Fenzi group, expressed his satisfaction with the new partnership: “A big welcome to Tecglass in our group; after following the innovative technology developed by Tecglass with great interest for many years, I am enthusiastic about the results that can be achieved by offering Tecglass the financial solidity and commercial strength of our group. Our holding is always looking for innovative developments in the glass industry and Tecglass is an investment opportunity that is in line with our research criteria”.
The same enthusiasm was expressed by Javier Fernandez, one of the two founding partners of Tecglass: “My partner Manuel Ramos and I are very happy to join the Fenzi group. We started working with Fenzi many years ago and for some time now Tecglass has been successfully distributing Fenzi products in Spain. We have recently developed a range of leading-edge digital printers and an alliance with a strong partner such as the Fenzi group is what Tecglass needs at this time to convert its technological leadership into a market leadership”.
