For almost 50 years GLASS has been developing and manufacturing machines for the food industry that are specially tailored to the needs of our customers. In doing so, we use our many years of experience and our specialist knowledge to advise our customers in partnership and to optimise processes together. In the end, our customers receive the perfect solution for their challenge.Why Glass
Over the past almost 50 years, GLASS has developed from a manufacturer of handicraft machines to a producer of process plants and special machines for the food industry. Today we are increasingly active in the production of industrial machines and in the project planning of new plants.
As a family business now in its third generation, we stand for traditional values such as durability and solidity. We have combined this foundation of our company policy with state-of-the-art technology, flexibility and the highest standards of hygiene, and have further expanded it with ISO 9001 controlled production processes.
Technologies used today, such as 3D-CAD, guarantee a customer-oriented production of all machines. A special feature of GLASS is the ability to manufacture a system exactly according to customer-specific requirements and to deliver it within a very short time.
In order to meet the social responsibility of companies, we are constantly training young people. The training takes place in both the commercial and technical areas. In this way, we guarantee that we will always be able to deliver optimum quality in the future.
In the now 46-year history of the GLASS company, it has always been and still is the ambition of everyone to put the customer and his satisfaction first. The primary objective of our company policy is to advise our customers in a spirit of partnership and ultimately to present the perfect solution for the respective task. In doing so, we not only manufacture the appropriate system, but also work out together with the customer how the ideal possibilities can be created for his company. In order to be able to offer the greatest possible process reliability, we provide equipment in our demo center, with which the customer-specific processes can first be tested with our own products.
