About Us

Cantini Vetro is a company specialised in the design, production and sale of special glass bottles and containers, for the food & beverage sector and for the cosmetics sector.
The company, in continuous expansion, combines many years of experience with the use of modern glass production techniques, thus giving shape to innovative and refined models.

Our primary objective is to increase the offer with always new and customer-friendly projects. Our internal design office, in fact, designs about 80 new models covered by patents every year, divided into various product sectors. Different styles and shapes characterise our bottles, which take on modern or classic lines, simple and linear or luxurious and elegant. Each bottle has its own identity and character, thanks also to the possibility of being customised on request.

We are fans of glass, in all its forms, colours and patterns.A material so ancient and so closely linked to the history of mankind that, with its reflections, it is able to perfectly preserve and enhance any content within it.

Efficiency and quality are our main features, for the respect of deadlines and customer requests. The dynamism in the resolution of every type of need and the precision in deliveries are, finally, the hallmarks of our company. All elements that combine to form the essence of our corporate mission.

The continuous investment in the development of design, together with the careful work of our team of more than 20 people, the real engine of the company, has allowed us to be among the leading companies in Italy with 75 million bottles sold in a year.

A Cantini Vetro bottle is not just any bottle

Choosing Cantini Vetro to produce your glass containers therefore means giving uniqueness and personality to your products, thanks to a process of listening to the needs and history of the customer and of creativity and innovation, the result of a long experience of over thirty years.

WORKING, shaping and designing glass containers means giving a precise shape and identity to their contents too; the wine, the oil, are shaped by the glass of the bottle that contains them and which thus becomes the distinctive and recognisable feature of that same product.

The design and structure of the container are fundamental elements, capable of giving the brand an important added value and its own recognition in the market. For this reason, design must be the culmination of a long process of reflection and product analysis.

After a first phase of interview and listening to the wishes and requests of the customer, our design team develops two sketches, one faithful to what is required and one innovative and original that can amaze and strike; both proposals are then analysed together with the customer, so as to arrive at the final phase of production and delivery of the product to the customer within the established times.

Customise what is unique

Cantini Vetro has a long experience in the field of customising glass containers. The technical office develops new original and innovative ideas, in synergy with the wishes and needs of the customer so as to enhance the uniqueness and refinement of the products through particular and elegant bottles.

The watchword for a sought-after project

Customisation, a fundamental process for giving character and particularity to the object, is the result of the union between the creativity of the designer and the values of the customer. The watchword is: innovation. Design development, technical drawings, 3D representations and characterisation techniques up to the complete customisation of the project: these are the main phases through which the recognisable and exclusive product is born.

The steps necessary to create your wishes

A harmonious shape, which tells the story and identity of the customer, is transformed into a customised object, to best express that corporate identity.

A container that speaks of you

Our task is to help you transfer what most represents the company to the bottle. Your idea and company history are transferred to glass by our team which, after analysing and studying ideas and proposals, develops a totally customised product for you.

Special and refined visual effects

Metallic, glossy, opaque, satin, with embossed or silk-screened logo, are just some of the processes that you can choose to best represent your product.
