Glavista, formerly Guardian Automotive, has taken the opportunity of this year’s Automechanika from September 13 to 17 in Frankfurt/Main, Germany to showcase its latest innovations and visions in autoglass for electrified, shared, connected and autonomous driving. Visitors at the company’s booth were able to experience, relate to and interact with the brand’s cutting-edge autoglass technology presented under the motto ‘The future is a journey’.
“Automechanika was a great place for us to speak face to face with valued partners and customers after what has undoubtedly been a challenging couple of years for everyone,” says Oscar Tejedor, General Manager, Glavista. “The show provided an excellent platform to communicate and illustrate how we envisage the future of autoglass as an ongoing journey to enhanced quality, innovation, safety, flexibility, closeness, sustainability & best service.”
By closely monitoring the industry’s latest trends and technologies, Glavista has established itself as a key player driving the continuous innovation in autoglass. As a result, the company’s Automechanika exhibit focused on a number of advanced concepts, including:
Advanced film technologies for solar control, privacy and photovoltaic layers
One key exhibit area at Glavista’s booth showcased sunroofs from small and hinged to large panoramic designs. In the future, integrated smart film technology will allow users to ‘dim’ the transmission of daylight for customized solar control, and an additional photovoltaic film layer or integrated solar panel in the sunroof could extend the driving range of EVs. Similarly, dimmable rear and side windows will offer enhanced passenger comfort and privacy on demand by switching the transparency to partly or fully opaque, as required.
Major investments in quality, innovation and sustainability
As well as being able to spend time with cutomers, the fair was an excellent opportunity for Glavista to show how it embraces sustainability in everything they do. Glavista believes the future is a journey, and as such, the company is committed to our planet, consistently adopting measures it believes to be necessary to protect our environment. Major investments in it´s Center of Excellence in Llodio, Spain help the company push boundaries both in product quality and new product technologies as well as in processes, always seeking out optimization and efficiency.
