Recall that a 2003, Glaston which was called at that time Tamglass had bought the Italian leader of flat glass forming machines Bavelloni and its distribution subsidiary Glasto. This buy-out, which was to build the undisputed leader in this market, ended ten years later with the resale of Bavelloni, which had grown from more than 600 employees to less than 200, with a sharp decline in value due to a lack of success. the merger of the two companies and after a cascade of leaders who will succeed at Glaston.

The resale of the grinding unit which, during the 2003 buyout, was a technological gem with a very strong profitability was made a few weeks ago.

Same with the purchase of Albat and Wirsam and its resale a few years later.
