Bavelloni SPA opens a new branch in France and supports growth in the sector

Bavelloni SPA, manufacturer of technologies for the flat glass, stone and ceramic industries, has recently expanded its international presence by opening a new branch in France. The management of the office located in Saint-Priest has been entrusted to Ms. Lakbira Zanzoune, already Bavelloni’s Sales Area Manager for the same market. This operation represents a significant step in Bavelloni’s expansion strategy, which is focused on serving the needs of customers in France and French-speaking Switzerland more closely and offering targeted support to French-speaking territories in Africa and the DOM-TOM, thus contributing in a tangible way to the development in these geographical areas.

Bavelloni France
has a highly qualified team of sales and technical experts, ready to support our Customer base both during the purchasing phase and after the sale.

In fact, the local presence allows for more direct communication and a more timely response to customer needs, greatly improving the quality of services offered. The new branch has also demonstrated its commitment to supporting local initiatives as well as its ability to integrate itself into the region. In fact, Bavelloni France enthusiastically seized the opportunity to support the 47th National Skills Competition, WorldSkills France, a major event held in Lyon from 14 to 16 Sep. 2023 by collaborating in the training of students from a number of local schools who competed in the ‘Miroiterie’ (Glassworks) category. The task of assisting in the training of the ‘future glassmakers’ was entrusted to Evan Pitout, one of Bavelloni France’s technicians who, suitably trained in Italy at Bavelloni’s headquarters, skillfully transferred his know-how to the students.

During the contest, the young challengers had the opportunity to work on the Bavelloni VE 350 8 straight-line edger on display at the ‘Village de la Construction’, demonstrating the skills they had acquired in the use of the Bavelloni equipment.

Lakbira Zanzoune, who attended the event, expressed her enthusiasm for the outcome of the competition and also her satisfaction with the professionalism shown by her team. “The students showed great potential by working with precision and skill. We are thrilled to have been able to contribute to their professional development and hope they can become the ‘glassmakers of the future’. It was also a good challenge for our team, making its debut at a major event with thousands of visitors” said Ms. Zanzoune.
