Glass Act

For immediate release – 5 September 2014

Glass Act

The recently launched Euroglass Creative design centre in Auckland’s Parnell is proving a hit with architects, builders and designers, many of whom attended the opening function and are now coming back for a second look.

The 180 square metre space designed by award winning Studio Gascoigne, hails glass as the hero by presenting a dazzling variety of interesting, innovative and practical ways to use glass.

Says general manager Murray Young, “We believe this type of glass resource is a first of its kind in Australasia. We’re able to engage with our clients at an early stage of their project to ensure we provide the most effective glass solution.”

The Euroglass Creative team offer a free consultancy service and they encourage clients to come in and enjoy a coffee in the colourful, open plan showroom where many different examples of glass are showcased throughout the indoor and outdoor spaces.


Background information

Twenty eight years ago Robert Famularo founded Euroglass in the garage of his Mt Eden home.
Robert had recognised the potential in the residential market for a simple, yet elegant, frameless glass shower without the need for unsightly frames and seals.
And along with providing the most stylish, uncluttered shower enclosures, Euroglass focussed on providing the very best possible service.
The first tagline for Euroglass was in fact ‘SIMPLY THE BEST’.
And true to this original mission statement, Euroglass followed through with providing the finest product and service. In fact even when the customer was wrong, they were deemed right! Such was the motto of Euroglass. Never, ever disagree with a customer, just fix it regardless.
It was clearly a winning formula as the business grew to encompass balustrades, pool fencing, doors, shop fit-outs and commercial installations, as well as manufacturing and supplying nationally and internationally the related hardware products. Later, a new facility was established to process and toughen glass, and complement Euroglass installation. This company was called National Glass.
The business evolved further in 2012, when Euroglass and National Glass formed a joint venture with the Australian-owned Viridian Glass.
And now they are further growing their passion for glass. In keeping with European cutting edge innovation, they are bringing to the New Zealand market glass products which produce higher performance outputs in areas like solar heat gain, UV protection, and acoustic and safety attributes using laminated glass. They also focus on sourcing innovative and inspiring opportunities for decorative applications.
The role of the new facility in Parnell, Euroglass Creative, is to provide a resource to inspire and support architects, designers, developers and builders to transform spaces into something more than their clients even dreamed of.
