The Group has embraced this challenge globally, artfully fusing the nineteenth century alchemy of its Angelo Orsoni furnace in Venice with the twenty-first century innovations of its engineered agglomerate manufacturing plant in Sebring, Florida. With production and assembly facilities on four continents and operations in more than fifty countries, Trend is currently distributing over 1.5 million square meters of glass mosaic tile and 800,000 square meters of agglomerate surfaces per year.
The leadership of Trend Group has worked to assure that the company’s commercial soul is shaped by a deep commitment to environmental concerns and cultural vibrancy. On the one hand, Trend actively supports the contemporary art world, is a leading member of the Intrapresae Collezione Guggenheim Association, and funds the biannual Orsoni Prize for International Mosaic Art. On the other, the company moved early and aggressively to reduce the ecological impact of its processes and products. Production is designed to consume fewer raw materials and energy resources, to recycle otherwise wasted materials, and to increase the natural durability of its inventive applications.
