The Company started its activity in 1973 with the name of ISA (Industria Serramenti in Alluminio). After the acquisition - dated 1986 - of the Australian company "Permasteel Industries Pty Ltd." – that manufactured the curtain wall of the Sydney Opera House – the Company name was changed to Permasteelisa. This acquisition gives the start to the international expansion, first into Singapore and Hong Kong markets, that to Japan, China, Thailand and Malaysia.

The European market expansion is driven from the Headquarters in Vittorio Veneto, Treviso, through the acquisition of the Dutch Scheldebouw B.V. in 1994, and the German Josef Gartner GmbH in 2001.

At the end of the 1990s, the Group starts it activity in the USA, first pushing the Interiors Fit-Out Business, than investing also on the Curtain Wall market.
