Fire and energy as the source of float glass production
Fire is our element. We must keep it burning otherwise everything will grind to a halt. 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, we make sure that our furnaces remain fired up and our glass conveyor belt keeps moving. Furnaces are up to 60 metres long and up to 30 metres wide. Around 6,000 metric tons of fireproof bricks and 1,000 metric tons of steel were used during their construction. It takes more than 1,500˚C to melt a batch inside the furnaces.
Fire - the source of our drive
Fire also characterises our corporate spirit. Just like our furnaces are never switched off, we are also driven by a dynamism to develop innovations within the world of glass over and over again.
