Inside Intermac Glass

A few days after Inside Intermac Glass – the company’s annual marketing event in Italy – drew to a close, the figures painted a positive picture: the event welcomed a host of visitors to a Tech Center which spans more than 1,000m2, where the ‘Made in Intermac’ technologies, designed to meet the challenges posed by Industry 4.0, were on display.

“We have decided to channel increasing investment into specialisation, and this is precisely why we organised this custom event, dedicated exclusively to the glass industry,” Franco Angelotti, director of the commercial glass and stone division, said. “Our decision was deeply rewarding – indeed, we recorded an increase in attendance of over 30% compared to last year.”

Intermac also celebrates 30 years of operation this year.

“Innovation is in the DNA of our company,” director Gianluigi Casadio said. “When Intermac designed and developed the first machining centres, we brought technology and innovation to life at a time where most companies were still focused on manual operations. Today, it is almost instinctive to associate Intermac with NC work centres; this is yet another reason for which we will be celebrating our 30th anniversary with great pride.

“Our goals are extremely ambitious, and are designed to constantly enhance our product portfolio, strengthen our marketing network and boost the level of service we offer even further. The recently approved three-year plan is clear: we must continue to grow, pursuing a precisely delineated development programme that is designed to expand our product offering, ensuring that our solutions are characterised by superior quality and by increasingly sophisticated technologies.”

In 2016, the Group hit a turnover of 618 million euros, an increase of more than 19% compared to 2015, which the company claimed crowned it the number one Italian player in the sector, and number two worldwide in terms of revenue.
