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
