2000: The first major challenge
The start of an important project with a French giant, leader in the glassware market, allowed PROXAUT to make the leap in quality that would allow it to increase its resources and broaden its horizons. This gave rise to the word of mouth which has helped PROXAUT to continue working for many years; it was the entrepreneurs themselves who recommended the PROXAUT plants and sealed the success of Modena AGVs.
The French giant is VERALLIA which is now the third largest producer of glass packaging worldwide, and the largest in Europe.
The meeting with the Verallia Group, which at the time represented the Packaging division of the Saint-Gobain group, was a great opportunity for Proxaut. The business managed to join a company that now has six production plants, only in Italy.
