This year in April HORN received the order for the repair of furnace 1 for the plant in Steinbach am Wald, which is an 82.8 m² end fired furnace.

Wiegand-Glas is one of the top 3 container glass manufacturers in Germany and produces in its four plants in Steinbach am Wald (Bavaria), Ernstthal, Großbreitenbach and Schleusingen (Thuringia) more than eight million glass containers for the beverage and food industry every day. The successful family-owned company, now in the 4th generation, relies on both tradition and modern technology. The company now receives the latter from HORN Glass Industries AG.

This year in April HORN received the order for the repair of furnace 1 for the plant in Steinbach am Wald, which is an 82.8 m² end fired furnace. In the future the plant will produce 270 tonnes of green glass bottles per day. The existing furnace will be redesigned by HORN for this purpose, partly equipped with new heating and safety equipment and will receive a new barrier boosting and two new batch chargers.

A further order has now been placed with HORN in July. The furnace manufacturer will build the new furnace 2 – a 430 t/d end fired furnace - at the Schleusingen plant. The scope of supply of the furnace and the three forehearths includes the planning work, the completely new furnace equipment and the erection of the plant.

Shortly after placing the order, the first on-site meeting with Wiegand-Glas concerning the new furnace took place. At this point, we wish all parties involved a successful and trouble-free project procedure.
