“Stölzle Flaconnage will be our new centre of excellence what regards the development, production and decoration of Premium Prestige Bottles. The recent 17 Mio € investment proves that we trust in our British plant, even in these difficult economic times of Brexit. The UK, and primarily Scotland are definitely the cradle of Whisky. Stölzle relies on its long-term expertise, acquired throughout years of fruitful cooperation with renowned Luxury spirits brand and continues to offer design, development and state-of-the-art production directly in the UK” explains Johannes Schick, CEO of the Stölzle Glass Group.

Taking advantage of a brand new state-of-the-art furnace, IS machines, decoration facilities, and an expert team of innovative designers, focus will be on tallware, gift products and feeder colouration, all made of cosmetics flint glass with a fire polishing option on all production lines.

In 2016 Stölzle further investments were made in modern Cold End inspection facilities and decoration technology, implementing a high speed spraying line and a new automated printing machine and accessory application.

Substantial improvements in the plants media supply (water, energy, compressed air) have been realised in order to ensure highly energy efficiency and an environmental friendly operation.
