Editorial

Dear readers,

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Ungeheuer, Chairman of the Board of Management SCHOTT AG
A good customer magazine is much like a bridge. It serves as a connection between a company and its customers. Since 1964, more than 100 issues of our special glass magazine »SCHOTT Info« have been devoted to achieving this vital task.

SCHOTT is committed to optimizing its products on a continual basis. This also applies to our publications. Today, we take great pride in presenting to you our completely new customer magazine: »solutions THE SCHOTT TECHNOLOGY MAGAZINE«.

This title stands for our innovative solutions, with which we hope to increase your market success. At the same time, it describes our company’s core purpose of achieving a lasting improvement in people’s living and working conditions by offering special materials, components and systems from SCHOTT.

In this respect, ensuring access to a secure energy supply ranks as a pivotal issue. The main topic we will be focusing on in this edition illustrates that parabolic trough power plants are perfectly suited to generate power in a climate-friendly manner. The special receivers we supply represent a key component of this technology. However, we are also active in the demanding healthcare market. Our pharmaceutical packaging products made of extremely resistant specialized glass or polymers provide protection for sensitive medications.

In addition, »solutions« will be reporting on the latest developments in our most well-known brand, SCHOTT Ceran® glass ceramic cooktop panels. Solid-colored cooktop panels and innovative decorative colors open up completely new avenues for the household appliance industry, in terms of new design capabilities.

I wish you enjoyable reading!
Sincerely Yours,
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Ungeheuer
