In 1994 Vidromax emerged in the glass sector and focused on distribution in the national market and in other geographic markets. Since the beginning, Vidromax aimed its efforts at markets with a high growth potential as Brazil, Cuba, Angola, Mozambique and also Cape Verde, turning the export market into a crucial area for its sustained growth.
Also during this same year, Vidromax acquired part of Maxividro; an industrial company specialized in processing flat glass. The evolution of both companies had shown that Vidromax had a dominant position inside Maxividro in 1998, the same year in which the production shifted onto double glazing, with a huge investment in a new transformation unit.
Nowadays, the holding company Activa, S.G.P.S. includes Vidromax, Maxividro and Vidromax Ibérica and works in transforming all glass categories for construction works. This business group has grown, driven by the solid synergy between Vidromax’s commercial experience and the deep technological know-how in the production area of Maxividro and internationalisation is the most recent answer to the market demand where it works.
The internalization of different glass transformation processes guaranteed to increase the capacity of glass production that covers contemporary technical solutions, with a reduction in energy costs and with optimized thermal and acoustic performances.
Focusing on the construction and architectural markets, the companies of the business group offer, nowadays, solutions that satisfy the most demanding and creative construction projects, either it is related to security aspects, solar control, and acoustic insulation or to architectural and decoration proposals. Considering the structural element – pillars, beams and floors – as well as innovative applications, as Curved Glass or Double Glazing with incorporated blinds or also cover materials for buildings, Activa’s answers keep up or anticipate the trends that are found in the increasingly demanding and developing construction market.


A young and highly qualified workforce team up with highly experienced technicians, ensuring that the service and technical support levels are capable to fulfil the most demanding requests. The ongoing training and a permanent attitude towards innovation make productive performances possible at an international level, concerning the new generation of glass.


Vidromax is well equipped with online means of production which connect it to its international peers and are suitable for the trends in the sector. A regular monitoring of the technology centre is part of the company’s routine, dictating when necessary new investments in order to keep the business group at the forefront of innovation.


Meet our production processes.

Vidromax has a fully automated glass storage system. All received glass sheets are identified and classified. This is the first procedure that ensures traceability of the product.

The Jumbo glass sheets 6000*3210 are automatically positioned in the cutting lines.

  • Cutting line for monolithic glass / Low-E (thickness 3mm to 19mm)
  • Forel vertical cutting line for laminated glass (thickness 33.1 to 1010.2)

Vertical Saw 6000*3210 for cutting multi-laminated glass

After being cut, the glass is moved to the manufacturing area, where the edges are cut according to the required levels of finish, and transformations, such as holes and carving, are processed.

  • Set of Bilaterals and
  • Vertical CNC for automated positioning and numerical control

Vidromax has a convection tempering furnace by North Glass with the dimensions Jumbo 6000*3210 that allows tempering and thermosetting the glass up to the maximum dimensions of 6000*3210. Vidromax has been reaching excellent levels of local and global planimetry of glass, allowing it to be laminated after being tempered.

  • Thickness: 4 to 19mm
  • Dimensions: maximum size 6000*3210

Curving glass process is done in the tempering furnace, and the maximum dimensions of the glass sheet are of 3000mm*3200mm and a minimum radius of 1500mm. All curved glass has been tempered.

We have the necessary equipment to conduct the HST test with the maximum dimensions of 6000*3210.

The HST Test is a thermal process that complements the tempering process and it is used to eliminate the glass that carries the risk of spontaneous breakage due to nickel sulphide inclusion.

The Digital In-Glass Printing Line by Dip Tech is the most recent acquisition of Vidromax. This line reflects the company’s constant effort to obtain the equipment technologically more developed and able to process the latest architectural trends in glass.

This digital printing line directly applies ceramic ink over the glass, using software with 24 print heads. This technology allows to “print” any picture without restrictions on colour and has a long-lasting durability. After being printed, glass follows to the tempering process.

Considering the size, the maximum dimensions of the glass sheet is 6000*3200.

We laminate different types of glass, using the EVA (Ethylene – Vinyl – Acetate) glass lamination technology.

The double-glazing process consists of placing 2 panes of glass in a spacer bar in which the space between the panes of glass is hermetically-sealed with treated air or argon gas. The sealing system of this set is ensured by a double leak proof barrier.

  • Bystronic Double-glazing Line, maximum dimensions 6000*3210
  • HI Tech Triple and Double-glazing Line, maximum dimensions 6000*3210
