Gimav, the Association of Italian Manufacturers of machinery, accessories and special products for glass processing, announced Cinzia Schiatti was confirmed to her fourth term as president.

“The coming years will be very challenging for Gimav,” says Schiatti. “We will endeavor to further strengthen the services and activities in support of our member companies during this delicate period in which we must capitalize on and leverage every opportunity to promote stable, lasting growth for our industry.”

Schiatti says there’s a sense of recovery in Gimav’s sector of Italian-made products.

“Even during the worst years of the economic crisis, Italy’s glass industry showed its strength and ability to fight back,” she says. “There is no doubt that our products take top honors in terms of technological content and guaranteed lifetime. The machines we make are known around the world and exports are precisely where enterprises are focused to launch an enduring recovery for the sector.”
