30th Anniversary

Polyglass® is celebrating 30 years of cutting-edge, quality product design for the United States building and waterproofing industries. As Polyglass marks 30 years in the United States roofing industry, the company looks back at its modest beginnings to celebrate past achievements and share its exciting vision for the decade to come.

When brothers Luigi, Romano, and Antonio Zanchetta created their first modified bitumen compound formulation for roofing membranes in Italy in the 1960s, little could they have anticipated how significantly their product innovations would impact the roofing and waterproofing industries over the coming years.

From opening their first plant in Italy in 1972 to later business expansions into the United States and its acquisition by The Mapei Group in 2008, Polyglass has continued to carve out its name as an industry leader and expert manufacturer of innovative and quality roofing and waterproofing technologies. To this day, Polyglass remains a family business, with Natalino Zanchetta, the son of founder Romano Zanchetta, at the helm in his role as president/CEO.

Polyglass’ future is bright, with several new initiatives in the pipeline, including expansions at some of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in North America. With the support of Mapei’s extensive network of research and development partners, Polyglass now looks to expand its products and solutions to serve new markets in 2022, beginning with the Building Envelope industry. Polyglass anticipates celebrating 30 exceptional years with customers and employees alike throughout the year.
