DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. — Polyglass U.S.A., Inc. is celebrating 20 years of doing business in the United States in 2012. The company plans on celebrating this milestone at the 2012 International Roofing Expo and other events throughout the year.

Originating in Italy in the 1960s, one of the founders of Polyglass SpA, Romano Zanchetta, decided to expand into the United States and opened its doors to the first U.S. manufacturing facility in Fernley, Nev. in 1992. Since then, Polyglass has grown to having three U.S. manufacturing facilities servicing North America, has launched innovative products such as its self-adhering membranes with ADESO® Technology, and has grown its product offering beyond modified bitumen membranes with its full line of coatings, mastics and white elastomeric coatings. In 2008, Polyglass was acquired by Mapei Corp. providing an even deeper commitment to continuing to offer innovative building solutions to contractors.

 ”It is exciting to be celebrating 20 years of doing business in the U.S.,” said Polyglass CEO, Natalino Zanchetta. “There are many people that contributed to this achievement and we thank them for their support and business over the past 20 years. I look forward to continuing to provide innovative roofing solutions to contractors.”
