Valiani Wins F.A.T.G. Innovation Award 08

The award was presented at the Art & Framing Industry Awards Event held on May 17th 2008 in Bristol, England, hosted by the Fine Art Trade Guild.

Italian manufacturer Valiani scooped top industry honours in the UK on the weekend. As ever, the most creative minds in the art and framing industry had a wide variety of fascinating innovations to solve problems or speed up production. The judges considered the merits of diverse products, including large-format art printing, Morso blade sharpening, frames to fit into the corners of a room and not one, but two new Computer mount cutting products.

Valiani’s ‘Interchangeable Cutting Heads System’ offers outstanding design and cutting versatility to users of its acclaimed range of computerized mountcutters. Swapping from one head to another can be accomplished in seconds using the specially designed Diapason tool and a simple system of powerful magnets, which secure the heads.

Innovation is the key to the company’s expanding international customerbase. Valiani was founded in Certaldo, just outside Florence, by Franco and Franca Valiani in 1974, who continue to run the company with their daughter Giada and son Nico. “We are investing a lot in R & D to create, develop and provide the right product for framers wherever they are in the world. More efficient technology allows the framer to keep up with a constantly demanding, changing market,” said Nico Valiani.
