Select group of well-known partner firms in Europe and the Middle East to serve customers in a fast and professional manner.   The international technology group SCHOTT has reorganized its sales of architectural glass products.

“We introduced this new sales structure to offer our customers the best possible service. Thanks to the distributor network, interested parties can now order the SCHOTT glasses they need in a quick and reliable manner. Here, we will be depending on our partners, who are not only known for their profound expertise in the area of distribution, but also for glass processing and refinement,” notes Andreas Hädrich, Sales Manager EMEA at SCHOTT Advanced Optics.

The partners will all be listed on the SCHOTT Advanced Optics homepage and can be recognized by the SCHOTT Architectural Partner logo.

By making this change, the manufacturer of specialty glass products will now be concentrating on its core area of expertise: developing and manufacturing high-quality glass products. The portfolio of SCHOTT’s architectural glasses includes the machine-drawn resoration glasses GOETHEGLAS, RESTOVER® and TIKANA®, but also decorative ARTISTA® clear glass for indoor and outdoor applications. Furthermore, the company will continue to provide coated specialty glasses such as anti-reflective AMIRAN® and MIROGARD® glass, the semi-transparent reflective MIRONA® glass or the dichroidic NARIMA® effect glass.
