Fenzi Group Purchases Akzo Nobel Production Facility

Fenzi Group, a Milan, Italy-based producer of products for the second processing of glass, has announced its purchase of an Akzo Nobel business unit. The 40,000-square-meter production facility, located in Vilvoorde, Belgium, specializes in corrosion-prevention coatings for protecting the reflective film of mirrors.

According to Fenzi, the facility it purchased is strategically placed to make deliveries via the best system and in the shortest time to all the main European producers on the market. According to a company news release, this location may, in the short term, become the hub for distribution in Europe of all Fenzi products.

"The takeover of the Akzo Nobel unit for mirror backing paints further strengthens Fenzi's top-ranking status in this market area, one where it has played a key part for more than 60 years," said Alessandro Fenzi, chief executive officer of Fenzi.
