Fenzi Group now produces warm edge solution product Thermix entirely in Italy and has completely integrated it into Alu Pro’s operations at its plant in Noale (Veneto).
Almost a year after the acquisition of Thermix, the new system is fully operative, thanks to the 12,000 m2 expansion of the Alu Pro production facility.
The production transfer was completed 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,” remarked Alessandro Fenzi, Group CEO of Fenzi Group.
Made with a special technopolymer and stiffened with two heavy-duty stainless-steel wires, the spacer is partially coated with a super-thin stainless-steel foil.
This provides bonding support for the sealants and acts as a barrier against loss of gases, allowing the entire IG unit to effectively block heat dispersion.
These specific features and compatibility with Fenzi sealants for IG units helps Thermix Tx Pro to complete the range of warm edge solutions offered by the Glass Alliance network, which Fenzi are a part of.
With 13 production and sales units around the world, the Fenzi Group serves its international clients from multiple distribution centers on all five continents.
Essential to its global strategy, this network has led the group on its path to success which, even in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, has not lost its stride.
“Thanks to winning strategies that have consistently been based on long-term development plans, the Group’s foundation is solid,” stated Mr Fenzi.
“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.
“Despite the uncertainty of the times, our dedication and positivity in coping with the challenges of the coming months is unwavering, with new investments and renewed confidence in an industrial sector rife with potential and vitality.”
