2016 has been an amazing year for the Vistamatic Group as we reaped the rewards of our ongoing U.S. expansion with 110% year-on-year growth. In 2016, we grew our product portfolio with a number of innovative privacy glass solutions across our Vistamatic, BetweenGlassBlinds and Vistaglass Direct brands, and announced a strategic partnership with ODL to expand their line of products and solutions for the healthcare and commercial construction sectors – with U.S. sales and distribution rights for Vistamatic!
Made In USA
A key element of our investment strategy is to continually grow and expand capabilities at our 15,000 square-foot high-tech glass fabrication and waterjet services factory in Coral Springs, Florida. This year we invested in state-of-the-art equipment and highly-talented people to support our growth, while maintaining the high standards and attention to detail that Vistamatic was founded on, and is renowned for. We are currently focused on reducing lead times by 50% for our customers as we strive to over exceed SLAs!
HealthCare Design Expo and Conference
We recently took part in HealthCare Design Expo and Conference where we unveiled our new interactive booth and launched several new products, including Clarity smartglass products and Frances by BetweenGlassBlinds. We were humbled by the amount of interest in Vistamatic; thanks to everyone that came out to see us!
In September, we added the Clarity Smartglass portfolio of products to our family. These stunning glass vision panels allow privacy and discrete observation, whilst maintaining a stylish and contemporary feel for healthcare, commercial and residential environments. In only weeks since launch, we have supplied panels for a high-end diamond and jewelry store in Austin Texas, and have numerous orders in production. The launch of Clarity positions Vistamatic as the only complete privacy glass solution company with a portfolio of products at all price points.
This week, we announced the appointment Juan Acosta to our team. We are delighted to have this industry veteran join our family and further growth this very exciting product range for us which includes: Glass Fabrication, Glass Laminating, Glass Back Painting and Sandblasting/etching.
2017 is a very exciting year for us! We are planning further expansion to our premises, new partnerships and initiatives and many new products – all of which we will unveil when the time permits! Until then, happy holidays and a happy and healthy 2017 to you and your family.
