Salamander and AGC Glass Europe enter into strategic innovation partnership
Türkheim / Unterallgäu - Salamander and AGC have entered into a strategic partnership for the DACH, Poland and Italy markets. The combination of their know-how and expertise in their respective fields will lead to new innovative solutions, resulting in the integration of vacuum glass into Salamander windows. A combination that optimally supports Salamander's goal of always producing the right windows. Among other things, this innovation work of Salamander Industrie-Produkte GmbH convinced the 29th round of the TOP 100 competition as a think tank and was awarded the TOP 100 seal 2022 for special innovative strength and above-average innovative success.
AGC Glass Europe is a European leader in flat glass. With its FINEO vacuum insulating glazing, AGC Glass Europe embraces innovative technology. The ultra slim glazing (from 6 mm total thickness) achieves unmet thermal and acoustic performances, better light transmission and less weight. FINEO is also 100% recyclable. In this way, Salamander windows in combination with FINEO vacuum glass achieve better results in terms of thermal and sound insulation, wind resistance and water tightness. The more filigree glazing, higher energy performance values, also result in potential savings for the profiles and thus resource efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. The weight savings make larger window areas and window shapes possible, which did not seem possible in the PVC sector until now and are absolutely in keeping with the spirit of the times.
At the Fensterbau Frontale in Nuremberg in July, Salamander will be exhibiting such a "window of the future". In short: the innovative combination of window and vacuum glass leads to more attractive design, higher functionality and improved sustainability. "Therefore, we are overjoyed with the exclusive partnership with AGC and convinced that this is a gamechanger for future window systems. Feel free to drop by our booth at Fensterbau Frontale in July and get an idea of this future window," says Co-CEO Till Schmiedeknecht.
Serge Martin, CEO FINEO Glass says, “We are very enthusiastic about this partnership with Salamander. This will bring outstanding solutions on the market, with a clear focus on performance, design and sustainability.”
With its "myWindow strategy", Salamander defines the window as a tangible, desirable and sustainable design product that is staged with style as a link between the building façade and living space design. The pioneering spirit of the over 100-year-old traditional company lives on in its products, such as the greenEvolution modular system and its employees. The multicompatible greenEvolution window system - with its digital app solutions - is just one example and a consequence of this culture and the current corporate strategy. Following this approach, the company participated in "TOP 100" for the first time this year and received the seal. "The award confirms us in our efforts to establish ourselves as an innovation and design leader," says Co-CEO Götz Schmiedeknecht.
