The History

A story made by people.

Dynamic and challenging people.

At the beginning the hollow glass (bottles) trade activity for the wine industry, had been started in 1896 by rag. Giacomo Sangalli.
In the first 20ties Arnaldo Sangalli addressed the focus of the family company to the construction industry glass, which had taken ever more importance, until becoming the only activity at the end of the second world war.
With the entrance of Giorgio Sangalli, at the end of '50ties, the family company becomes a Group: the factories are in Susegana, Vittorio Veneto, Modena, Perugia and San Vito al Tagliamento.

The Group specializes in transformed glass production (insulating glass - 60ties, tempered glass - '80ties, laminated safety glass - 90ties); makes a great leap forward becoming the second European independent float glass producer and the first and unique Italian producer (float glass - 2002); it specializes in householders and interior design glass production (tempered and screen-printed glass - 2003) and it achieves, in the production site in Manfredonia, a new factory for satinated glass production (2008) and an innovative plant for magnetronic coating (high energy performance low-emission glass - 2009).

Since May 2011, with the new plant in Porto Nogaro, the float glass production doubles. With 1300 tons produced every day Sangalli Group reaches the 35% of the float glass produced in Italy.

The activity of research end development goes regularity on in order to realize performing and technologically advanced products, mainly dedicated to a more ecologic and open minded architecture.
