Wiegand-Glas - a family-owned company with a long-lasting tradition
The history goes back more than 400 years and also reflects the sustainability of glass. Today, we produce in our four glass plants in Steinbach am Wald (Bavaria), Ernstthal, Großbreitenbach and Schleusingen (Thuringia) with the latest technology more than 8 million glass containers a day and employ about 1,950 people.
Glass is not only an historic packaging material. Glass is one of the few materials which can be fully recycled thus contributing considerably to the environmental protection. Glass is almost only made of natural raw materials which appear to a large part in Germany. Hence we mainly produce in the home country and rely on quality made in Germany. As a medium-sized and family-owned company we do not only look back on a long and successful tradition but primarily into the future. Among the company’s key goals is to act ecologically and sustainably. The management is relying on tradition and most-modern technology at the same time. This way, Wiegand-Glas combines tradition and future - for the benefit of our customers and to protect our environment.
