The GERMAN FLOATGLASS TECHNOLOGY GmbH acts as a global player in the Glass Industry. In the recent years we successfully supplied our technological equipment (Float bathes, Float Furnace Equipment, WHR Systems, etc.) to international clients, and our key personal managed international investment projects of complete new plants, optimization projects and cold repairs (Float Glass, Display Glass, Container Glass, Glass Wool, Mineral Wool, …).
Who we are
The experience grade of our highly qualified engineers and technicians is mainly based on Pilkington know-how, the inventor and long termed patent owner of the “float” system, where most of our key personal started their career more than 25 years ago at various positions (Engineering, Development, Production, Logistics, etc.) and involved in national and international investment and optimization and operation projects.
How we work
Based on our long termed praxis and experience in engineering and operation we manufacture the technological key components in-house.
Together with our competent network partner (JSJ Jodeit GmbH and qpunkt GmbH) we provide production components up to complete and highly competitive production plant concepts with highest product quality and lowest energy consumption.
We supply turn-key units and support our clients by experienced engineers and operators during commissioning, personal training, production and operation, and continuous process optimization. In case of demand furthermore we also provide temporary production operation.
We know the difference
Our experience and comprehensive services linked with German engineering and manufacturing distinguishes us from market competitors, which are mainly coming from equipment manufacturing, and therefore configure and design components and plants with different focus.
Based on our know-how we design components and plants from the clients’ point of view by considering integrated concepts and in case of demand tailor made solutions. At all activities we determine and consider the balance of investment and operation costs.
Our components and concepts are continuously under development and improvement, and such we dispose also about unique and also patent registered solutions for process optimization and for reduction of primary energy demand.
