Mirror substrates for the European Extremely Large Telescope!
Protection glass 2.0
Did you know that touchscreens, camera modules and fingerprint sensors in smartphones are only as good as their protective cover glass? SCHOTT accepted the challenge and developed an ultra-thin, extremely robust glass with ideal properties for these areas of application while listening closely to the demands of the Asian market: “SCHOTT AS 87 eco” was born. This engagement underlines SCHOTT’s innovative strength and reflects its close relation to the Asian region.
SCHOTT increases sales and earnings
We continued to grow in fiscal year 2015/2016 and succeeded once again in increasing our profitability. EBIT improved to EUR 223 million compared to EUR 178 million the previous year, an increase of 26%. Consolidated net profit for the year reached EUR 139 million, which is 47% higher than in fiscal year 2014/2015. After a good start in the first three months, we expect to achieve a sales increase of between 3% and 5% for the fiscal year as a whole.
