By 6 June 2021 – if not before – all eyes will be riveted on Frauenfeld, the largest town in the canton of Thurgau and home to the company headquarters of GLATZ AG. Wheels will be in motion all over Switzerland once the Tour de Suisse (TdS) begins! And sunshade manufacturer GLATZ is there at the heart of the action – as official supplier for one of the world’s most renowned cycle races.

As one of the leading sunshade suppliers in Europe and throughout the world, it gives us enormous pleasure to support the 2021 Tour de Suisse with large numbers of our sunshades. A love of our country and its people, and a long history: we share these attributes with the Tour de Suisse. And in both cases, that history has been characterised by passion, hope, a few disappointments, pride and joy. Participants in the Tour de Suisse concentrate on strength, fitness, stamina and riding skill – whereas for over 120 years, our efforts have focused on the best possible solutions to provide shade.

Hoteliers, restaurateurs and garden enthusiasts have known for a long time that a GLATZ sunshade offers far more than shade. All our sunshade models afford protection against wind and rain as well as sun, and they withstand the most adverse weather conditions. What’s more, the ‘UV Protection’ test label guarantees maximum possible UV protection of over 99% for all sunshade fabric covers. We believe that nothing is impossible. We have the right shade solution for every location and every space. Our customers greatly appreciate a high-quality brand product, but they also want expert advice before their purchase as well as during delivery and installation of the product, backed up by professional support after they start using their shade. Our authorised and certified specialist dealers at local level guarantee that all these expectations are met.

When it comes to patenting and developing sunshades, we are always one step ahead of our competitors. Now, we just have to wait and see who makes the running, and who will wear the coveted leader’s jersey in the 2021 Tour de Suisse.

Here at GLATZ AG, we’re brimming over with anticipation of the great event in Frauenfeld, and we’re already keeping our fingers crossed for all the participants. The best of luck to everyone!
