We currently offer more than 2,000 different types of containers with a volume of 45 ml up to 3,000 ml and 850 different types of finishes. Glass is a material which offer endless possibilities. The wide range of colours is completed with our in-house coating system in Steinbach am Wald for the colouring and decoration of bottles. With our new service centre located in our facilities in Schleusingen we offer additional services around glass packaging. Full service distinguishes ourselves. With additional services we create the added value that sets us apart from our competition.
To ensure that your drink stays in shape, we offer you a range of packaging concepts encompassing everything from the design of the individual bottle, to production, decoration and delivery to the filling.
We support you to develop and optimize the packaging of your product. 0 defects is our aim – we watch the quality of our products before the start of production. Quality is even monitored before the initiation of production, with computer simulation software detecting critical areas of tensile or compressive stress (internal strength) at the product development stage. As a result, we are able to correct and avoid breakage defects prior to the first bottle being produced in designing a bottle with very good strength characteristics. The order of the blow moulds, sample production runs as well as the safe delivery of our products in time complete our level of service. After the production of your individual product, we are glad to decorate your bottles either in our in-house coating facility or hand in hand with our regional partners. We offer all-in-one packaging solutions from the equipment of your bottle up to the customised packaging. The safe and timely delivery of your products by our own transport company is our mission. Our team is happy to advise you from the very first idea to delivery and beyond.
Our new service centre built in 2015 and located in our facilities in Schleusingen, makes us more flexible and highly performed. Fully automatic processes enable us to offer:
- bottles with swing stoppers,
- jars with caps,
- containes packed in boxes,
- containers packed in customer crates and
- sort out and refill crates with the appropriate glass bottles.
You avoid extensive manual processes, long transport ways and high coordination efforts. Your product arrives directly at your filling line. The worthwhile added value which brings you forward.
Our coating facility in Steinbach am Wald ensures the customer’s individual requirements to be met and give the bottles more character and soul. We offer tailor-made solutions to our customers to stand out clearly from competitors and make themselves individual and unique. No matter if transparent, opaque, glossy, frosted, in bi-colour design or in a special colour or with decorative frost effects - the latest application technology at Wiegand-Glas makes it possible. The system works ecologically and free of solvents thus contributing significantly to our environment. It is an water-based paint offline coating which enables us the decoration of small as well as full-production lots. We also offer an UV-protection which prevents light rays below 400 nm to get into the filling good. The distinctive feature of this material is that it is invisible thus influencing neither coloured nor transparent coatings but offering best protection to the container’s content. Recently, Wiegand-Glas also offers fluorescent varnishes in pink, yellow, green and orange colour as well as glossy metallic varnish in gold and silver.
