Glass is a magic material.

What do you love most about what you do?
For me glass is a magic material. I've been working with glass for so many years, but I can still learn and discover its “secrets“. With so many  chemical and physical processes  going on in the furnace you can never be bored.

Customer's joy and satisfaction, when we meet all their expectation,  brings joy also to my coleagues and me.

I used to study psychology in my free time and my mentor once told me: »Not everyone is going to like you and that's ok. You can't please everyone. But you can live and act in your life  in a way,  you can  fall asleep peacefully every night. A clean conscience makes a soft pillow.« And this quote has been my guideline ever since.
