As a family company, the company GLATZ puts its heart, soul and know-how into designing and manufacturing sunshades. It is not surprising that GLATZ AG has a 125-year Company History - and is one of the leading sunshade manufacturers in Europe and throughout the world.
The company founding fathers' maxim remains a company philosophy today: keep your finger on the pulse and be ahead of your time! GLATZ has always been conscious of its role as a pioneer and is still as innovative as it ever was. In 1895, Albert Glatz found a lucrative niche that went on to become a successful business under the leadership of his son, Albert Junior. Later, Dölf Glatz successfully developed technical solutions that found worldwide recognition.
Now in its fourth generation, the company is led by CEO Markus Glatz and has made a name for itself with sunshades and outdoor concepts for homes, gardens, hotels and restaurants – far beyond the borders of Switzerland.
Our Swiss product designers are developing all sunshades based on ergonomic principles according to the maxim “form follows function”. There is a reason why the company owns the most patents and applications for model and design protection in Europe.
The product range consists of 27 different types of sunshades, primarily available in three separate shapes, countless sizes and up to 90 shades of color and representing the widest range of sunshades worldwide.
GLATZ AG pursues a selective sales strategy. The company carefully chooses and trains its retailers and distribution partners and subsequently authorize them to sell. This allows the company to offer high-quality, durable products and provide optimal service, covering every aspect of sun protection made by GLATZ.
GLATZ has an extensive variety of accessories available: the company optionally offers the matching original accessories for every model, 100 percent compatible with our sunshades, and providing optimal fastening and stability.
