Adding Up The Leadership

In 1991, in the town of Nazare Paulista, the Farhat amily founded what was to become one of the largest and most important glass transforming companies for the civil construction industry in the Brazilian market. Led by Abrahão Farhat, already back in those years, Glassec stood-out for the quality of its products and services.

Twenty years later, now under the leadership of Dario Farhat, Glassec became a multinational corporation, following its association with the North-American company Viracon, the global leader with over 40 years of experience in architectural glass technology for large projects around the world.

Thus, the two leading companies, now united in a single organization, established the foundations to meet the growing demand for solutions in glass of high aggregate value in the domestic and international markets.

As a company of the Apogee group, GlassecViracon complies with the North-American Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) legislation that requires strict audits and ensures transparency in its management practices.
