A complete supplier

Fenzi Group has been reflecting on its recent acquisition of warm edge supplier Thermix, and its ambitions to be “the most complete supplier for the international glass industry”.

Almost a year after the acquisition, Thermix is now produced entirely in Italy and completely integrated into Alu Pro’s operations at its plant in Noale (Veneto), already a global supply hub for high-performance IG unit spacer profiles.

The new system is fully operative, thanks to the 12,000m2 expansion of the Alu Pro production facility.

The production transfer was completed, as planned, at the end of 2019, with installation of the final lines in early 2020.

“We immediately achieved the same high product quality as that of the Ensinger plant in Cham, a major accomplishment gained, in part, due to the support received from Ensinger,” Alessandro Fenzi said.

“We currently have excellent control of the production cycle and the technology. Thermix is, to all effects, our product and the appreciation our clients have shown is the most immediate demonstration of that. In spite of any possible fears over the change of ownership, we have managed to completely satisfy our clients’ expectations.”

Alessandro continued: “The trying months of lockdown have not dampened our enthusiasm or the company’s plans. Thanks to the firm commitment of our entire value chain – from our employees to all of our partners – the health crisis has spurred the initiation of efficient synergies and new business models.”
