November 2016

The November issue of Glass International features company profiles on Stolzle Flaconnage in the UK and Verallia in the Ukraine, as both companies unveil new furnaces designed to produce high quality flint glass for premium products.

We also have an interview with the President of Poland’s Techglass, the supplier of Stolzle’s furnace, as well as with the CEO of Forglass, which provided the batch plant on the project.

Batch plants are the focus of our technical features, with EME and Zippe providing insights into the latest technologies on offer.

As well as this, we cover the recent Phoenix Award event, held in honour of Chairman Cho Tak Wong, Founder of Fuyao Glass, and bring you the views of industry leaders from O-I, AGC, Saint-Gobain, Apple and Schott that they shared at the opening event of this year’s glasstec.

This is as well as technical features on cellular glass and process control, and the usual mix of columns and industry news.
