Aglatec is the acronym for “Advanced glass technology”. It is an Italian company that has doubled its turnover over the last four years; in 2014, turnover was €2m.
The company was founded by Sergio Amidei in 2006 and it is based in the small town of Monsano, in Central Italy. Aglatec supplies the biggest European manufacturers of ice cream display refrigerators and manufactures of equipment for the catering industry. Moreover, Aglatec supplies its technologically advanced glasses to yacht builders.

“The key to our success – Sergio Amidei, founder of Aglatec, tells – has been the ability to combine technology and craftsmanship to manufacture high quality glasses that other large manufacturers in the glasswork industry have failed to deliver. As a result, over the last three years export has increased by 30 percent and today the company exports to Turkey, Poland, Austria, Greece and the UK”.

The range of No-Frost glass produced by Aglatec is suitable for all types of refrigerated display cabinets.
In 2014, Aglatec launched a new, successful, product range: heated glass tops. This new range of glass is particularly sought after by companies specialised in making display-equipment for the catering industry. Plates on this glass stay warm, ensuring food stays at the right serving temperature for a longer time. Aglatec heated glass tops can reach 90°.

Another successful Aglatec product is glass made with “LCD Glass Technology”. This technology enables large glass panes to turn opaque or to remain transparent with the touch of a finger. LCD glass can create a good degree of privacy whenever needed: homes and offices alike, yacht windows, shower boxes or even as stylish flooring. LCD glass can also be used at schools and universities where windows can be used, if necessary, as blackboards.
