Two sites with a long history of glassmaking

Glassworks were established here as early as 1855 by Salomon Reich, and became part of the SCHOTT family in 1996. Now, two separate business units are located here: SCHOTT CR (lighting and imaging) and SCHOTT Termofrost (glass door system for commercial refrigeration).

About the region

A historic town built on glass

Surrounded by the picturesque Beskydy Mountains and the Vsetín Hills, the town of Valašské Meziříčí is located in the east of the Czech Republic, in Moravia, and is home to 22,750 inhabitants. The community was founded as far back as the 13th century and became known as a center for glassmaking from 1855, when a local glassworks rose to become one of the largest producers of light glass in the Austro-Hungarian empire. Those skills and traditions were handed down the generations, which was one of the reasons why SCHOTT decided to build an operational base here.
