Rudolf Marte founds a carpentry and glassworks at Fischergasse 1 in Bregenz. The start-up capital for the one-man operation: professional skills, the will to work hard and only the necessary tools.
The company increasingly turns to glass processing. Glassworks, glass grinding and, above all, repair glazing predominate. First major orders strengthen the company founder in his chosen path. Rudolf Marte significantly increases the operating areas at Fischergasse 1.
The glass wholesale operation is expanded. New storage problems need to be solved. The post-war period places enormous demands on all those involved, which have to be overcome.

Glas Marte is the first company in Vorarlberg to produce insulating glass with a double seal. The first generational change is announced: Son-in-law Anton Feigl takes over the management together with his wife Marianne and two other daughters of the company's founder, Irmgard Stefan and Gertrud Spieler. Glas Marte employs 26 people.
The Glass Construction Department expands. The first in-house developments in the field of sliding systems for balcony glazing are developed. The Insulating Glass Department relocates to new production halls.. Glas Marte becomes market leader in Vorarlberg. The number of employees increases to 45.

The high order volume is handled on a total production area of the two plants of about 30,000 m². The production process is more flexible than ever before. Glas Marte thus has the highest performing safety glass plant in Western Austria.

In addition, the development of a tailor-made ERP system brings an enormous simplification of work in production and administration.
