Conventional glass making has a long tradition.
With our new technology, we are working on our own tradition.
GLASS MAKING IN THE 21ST CENTURY
Based on scientific breakthrough discoveries, we believe in the power of our unique technology. As a constantly growing team of scientists, financial and sales experts, production and quality managers, we are working on Glassomer, the glass technology of the future: easy, powerful and energy saving.
We are building the glass production of the future!
Glass was crucial for the information age, is crucial for industry 4.0 and will be crucial for emerging technologies.
We believe that the unique products enabled by the Glassomer Process will forward markets like optics, data technology, MedTech and SolarTech while also contributing to the sustainability goals of modern production.
That is why we have assembled a dynamic team of scientists, financial experts and project managers to build the glass production of the future: unlimited designs of high quality glasses produced with lower energy consumption.
From our roots in science to our production line we have mastered many challenges and milestones.
