 Semperit Profiles and SchlegelGiesse start collaboration in Italy and Spain


Bologna / Deggendorf, 26 April 2017 – SchlegelGiesse and Semperit Profiles have entered a partnership for the distribution of EPDM seals in the window and door market to start with the countries of Spain and Italy.

This cooperation between two of the major suppliers to the window and door industry enables Schlegel to complement its product portfolio by now including a full range of EPDM rubber profiles and supply all clients a fully integrated solution from one single source. Semperit Profiles benefits from cooperation by strengthening its distribution channels in these markets.

Semperit Profiles is the ideal partner with its well-known quality, extensive product range and wide experience in the development and manufacturing of rubber gaskets,” said Peter Santo, CEO of Schlegel International.

“Having built a good relationship over the preparation for this cooperation we are proud that Schlegel, a respected international provider of window and door components, has chosen Semperit as its partner to supply EPDM gaskets. Especially Schlegel’s strong sales and distribution structure in Italy and Spain in connection with their hardware is a highly interesting opportunity for us,” commented Dieter Kaiser, Managing Director of Semperit Profiles.

For the existing relations with customers in Spain and Italy as well as international system providers operating in these countries nothing will change, as their business will stay with their known partner. All Schlegel clients there will now have the opportunity to source Semperit products directly.
