History

Innovation excellence, since 1977.

Isoclima was established in 1977, in Este, in the province of Padua in Italy's Northeast, its core business to deliver glass solutions for the building industry.
With ambition and innovation running through our DNA, we soon became a market leader in the insulating glass market, and launched into the research and development of new advanced hi-tech glazing solutions that stood out for their excellent ballistic resistance. 

In our 40-plus years in the business, we have developed a series of products that have proved to be market game-changers, such as Omniarmor, Omnilite, Isolite, and many more. Advanced, certified solutions, adopted by some of the world's top companies, such as Apple, Mercedes, Audi, Azimut-Benetti, San Lorenzo, Bmw, Iveco IDV, Ferrari, Ferretti, McLaren, Leonardo, Airbus, and by the most decorated Police and Defence Forces.

The Isoclima group

Isoclima, originally part of the Finind Group (alias Finanziaria Industriale), expanded in the mid-'90s with the takeover of other major glass industries in Italy and abroad, such as Isoclima de Mexico S.A. de C.V. in Mexico and, in early 2000, Lipik Glas d.o.o. in Croatia.

Since 2017, the whole multinational group has become part of the Stirling Square Capital Partners' portfolio of businesses.

Today, the name Isoclima stands out for the expertise gained over the years, for the high quality of its products, and for its co-engineering, earning it the enviable position of supplier to the world's most prestigious motor groups (FCA, Daimler, Mercedes, BMW, VW-Audi), and major players from industries across the board.

With the extensive range on offer, Isoclima products are valued by many different industries, especially given the increasing demand for hi-tech products that meet the highest standards of quality and safety.

One of the distinctive qualities we are known for is our ability to meet demands of all kinds, and offer custom products that can be tailored to individual customer requirements in terms of mechanical and ballistic strength, solar protection, and energy control.
