After becoming its artistic director in 1926, he took over its management with his brother Nicol and in 1936 he became sole proprietor, engineering the fusion between his own glass workshop and the S.A.I.A.R. Ferro-Toso.
In 1942, the new company was renamed Barovier & Toso, where Ercole maintained artistic direction until 1972.
Over the course of his 50-year activity, he invented numerous decorative techniques which contributed significantly to the renovation of art glass."
