JF. Vidraceiros: “We heard about the Proliner and we immediately knew we had to get it! It is nowadays an indispensable tool!”
JF. Vidraceiros was founded more than 20 years ago. It is a family business company, located in Fátima. This is home to the Sanctuary of Fátima, a Catholic pilgrimage site, in central Portugal.
The CEO of the company, José Fernandes, has 40 years of experience in the glass industry. The need at the time made him start in this sector, and he didn’t leave ever since. He started working on behalf of another. Later he created a company in partnership with 2 other partners, and finally he founded his own company: JF. Vidraceiros. His wife Fátima Lino and his son Diogo Fernandes are also part of it.
The company specializes in a wide variety of products, such as: staircases, shower screens, balcony screens, kitchen glass, mirrors and shop fronts.
JF. Vidraceiros is always one step ahead when it comes to technologies, as these will enable the development of the company. They have floating glass and laminated glass cutting machines, edge cutting machines, washers, cranes, CNC, drilling machines and a glass assembly robot on site. In addition to these, to facilitate even more work and become more efficient, they are proud users of the Proliner.
When in conversation with Diogo Fernandes about their experience with the Proliner, he explained: “We like to visit trade fairs because there we discover new machines and tools that could innovate our business. We heard about the Proliner and saw it in action. We immediately knew we had to get it! We use it very often. It is a device that is nowadays indispensable!”
He continues: “The features I appreciated the most are the ease of making templates, the speed and its efficiency. These makes the work easier. I really like the fact that I no longer need to make cardboard templates and go to rectify the measurements. They say: ‘time is money’! Also, there are no more mistakes on the measurements, even on the more difficult ones.”
