In Normandy, the Brosse glassworks, which became Zignago Vetro Brosse in 2002, specializes in the production of bottles and carafes for the perfume, cosmetics and luxury spirits sectors. By progressively automating its work tool, the company has significantly improved the working conditions of its employees. Thanks to semi-automation, tasks requiring handling and awkward movements have disappeared.
