History

The state-of-the-art company behind world’s most famous landmarks

Our history is marked by a culture of pioneering, forward-thinking, continuous improvement and by a unique track record of historical landmarks.

1973
Permasteelisa starts its operations in Italy originally with the name of I.S.A. ‘Industria Serramenti in Alluminio’ as a small window manufacturer.
1980s
In the continuous quest to expand the business, the I.S.A. management looks at southeast Asia, particularly Hong Kong and Singapore which offers extensive commercial opportunities because of land scarcity, a high concentration of financial institutions, and a fertile international business environment.
1986
Acquisition of the Australian Permasteel. The merger of Permasteel and I.S.A. produces Permasteelisa (the new name would be used formally after 1988). In the 1980s, the Group's activities are focused, beside Italy and Europe, on the Asian market where, in addition to the acquisition of Permasteel, it signes several agreements with small and medium-sized local design companies.
1990s
The geographic diversification strategy becomes urgent. Permasteelisa focuses on the European market with exciting and technologically challenging projects, designed by architects more inclined to use high-tech design. The company works on large renovation projects in La Défense in Paris, Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, and Canary Wharf in London. Permasteelisa grows in Europe both organically, by opening UK and Belgium branches, and by acquisitions. Towards the end of the 1990s, the Group succeeds to enter the US market starting with the Interior market.
2000 - 10s
Permasteelisa consolidates its global leadership with a systemic and consolidated presence in the USA, Europe, Asia and Middle East, and stands among the leading curtain wall sector world players with advanced proprietary technology.
