Who WE are FAMILY ENTERPRISE. The two chairmen and owners,Dr Robert Hartel and Dr Andreas Buske, implement a “crystal-clear” restructuring programme in 2001 for reorganisation of the company. Due to the management buyout the tradition-steeped company was able to remain at the location in Zwiesel and several hundred jobs could be secured. Since this time the duo has been leading a traditional enterprise which is oriented to the conditions of the world market with innovativeness and dynamism. In particular, the two chairman attach great value to economic, ecological and social responsibility for products “Made in Germany”.

Who WE are • COLLABORATIONS. The international exclusive glass care partnership with ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS Long-lasting glass brilliance even after frequent use is a challenge for our customers worldwide. An innovative stemware glass basket developed by Bosch ensures a secure hold for long-stemmed glasses as well as optimal cleaning and drying results. Glasses are securely fixed and do not touch each other during the cleaning process. Thanks to the various loading options, the stemware glass basket flexibly adapts to requirements and accommodates different goblet sizes right next to each other. As a result, they remain free of scratches and retain their brilliance longer.
Who WE are ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS.Inspired by Professionals. Global partnership, individual service: The collaboration with top gastronomes, sommeliers and renowned designers has made ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS into a worldwide leading partner for the hotel industry, gastronomy sector and retail. We have been setting standards for our retail partners for years with contemporary products and customised services.
What WE value Tritan® crystal glass. Sustainably produced for pure enjoyment. The glass with eco certification. Certified for optimal environmental management. • Glassware with eco-balancing certificate and carbon footprint • Brilliant, break resistant and dishwasher-safe • Lead-free and barium-free • ISO 14001:2004 und ISO 14040:2009 certified • Now also as TRITAN® PROTECT with double protection against stem breaking
What WE value Our active contribution for the environment.We have achieved this with innovative technology and new ideas: Regional raw materialsEvaluated and approved in accordance with REACH (Registration Evaluation Authorization of Chemicals). More efficient energy useReduction of water and energy consumption through consistent use of laser technology. Reduction of CO2 und NOX emissions-30 % less CO2 emission -60 % less NOX emission Improved qualitySignificant reduction in breakage rate of Tritan® crystal glass.This has reduced levels of unnecessary replacement productions. Ecological responsibilityRecycling of all glass shards created during production process. Holistic rubbish separation concept. Use of environmentally friendly, recyclable materials.
What WE are capable of TRITAN®PROTECT. Twice the break strength: the new TRITAN®PROTECT. With the TRITAN®PROTECTwe once more increased the durability of Tritan®crystal glass. It offers double the protection against breaking stems compared to conventional glasses. The specially tempered stem surface protects the glass against scratches and increases break strength and overall durability.
What WE are capable of TECHNOLOGIES. Oxyfuel technology – a milestone in the stemmed-glass industry Compared to conventional gas and air-heated glass-melting furnaces, an oxyfuel furnace uses less energy per unit of glass during the melting process. The new technology allows for an approximately 30 percent reduction in energy consumption, which leads to a reduction in both costs and emissions of nitrogen and carbon dioxide. Air separation system The oxyfuel melting tanks are operated by oxygen, which is extracted by a new air separation system installed on site.
What WE are capable of TECHNOLOGIES. Laser technology in glass production LAVA – Laser melting and smelting system • With the new production process a CO2 laser is used to separate any surplus glass. Energy intensive processes are reduced to a minimum by using the CO2 laser. These optimise the production process of the drinking glasses.
What WE are capable of TECHNOLOGIES. Manufacturing process for pulled stem Pulled stem The pulled stem is among the greatest challenges of mechanical glass production. This technology enables entirely new design lines in which mechanical production is so sophisticated that end products are much more similar to handmade products. ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS has risen to this challenge in order to further expand the lead as the industry’s technology leader on the world market.
