The Gerresheimer Group’s Tettau plant manufactures hundreds of millions of glass containers for the cosmetics industry every year. Two furnaces operate around the clock to supply the production lines of that make diverse bottles and jars for perfumes, cosmetic creams and other beauty products. This month, the older of the two flint glass furnaces was replaced with a new, more powerful furnace and the plant’s production technology was upgraded.
“We’re investing in our cosmetic glass production operations so that we can more effectively meet our customers’ needs in future,” said Bernd Hörauf, General Manager in Tettau.
According to Gerresheimer, the new furnace satisfies all statutory requirements of exhaust gases and air purity, and it has a completely sealed melting basin to improve energy efficiency. Thus allowing a dramatic reduction of energy consumption.
