So it wasn't long before he ventured into self-employment in 1977. At that time, times in the construction industry were anything but rosy. Nevertheless, he took heart and gave construction workers exactly what they had always needed most: Work relief.
This was also the birth of the first ever slab edge shuttering system, which Giulio Albanese successfully launched in 1977.
As early as 1979, the first patented Albanese products celebrated their premiere at Swissbau in Basel. At that time, however, still in cooperation with the company Locher. Meanwhile, the developments continued, even outside the construction industry, patented and manufactured one. The distribution was initially carried out by the company Joma Trading. In 1990 Giulio Albanese founded the company Albanese Baumaterialien Import-Export and distributed his products from then on under his own management. This brought him, among other things, until 1992 a proud export share to Germany and Austria of 20%. Thus the upswing of the enterprise was no longer to be stopped. In addition, Giulio Albanese became the first passive member of the Swiss Construction Management Association in the same year.
