SCHOTT Lanškroun

The SCHOTT facility in the Czech Republic town of Lanškroun forms an important part of SCHOTT’s Electronic Packaging operations. This site has become a major center for the production of glass-to-metal seals and other components, chiefly for use in the automotive industry.

Close cooperation for continuous growth

The foundation of SCHOTT Electronic Packaging Lanškroun s.r.o. resulted from cooperation between Tesla Lanškroun a.s. and SCHOTT Landshut, Germany. The company was incorporated in March 1993, with a focus on hermetic packaging solutions using SCHOTT’s highly advanced glass-to-metal sealing techniques and other specialty glass technologies. Over the last 20 years, the Lanškroun site has grown to become an important location for the manufacture of components for automotive products, as well as the supply of reliable, advanced glass solutions for fields such as optoelectronics.

About the region

Rich history and natural beauty

The East Bohemian town of Lanškroun lies on the borders of the Bohemia and Moravia regions, below the foothills of the Eagle Mountains and on the upper stream of the Moravian Sazava river. With a population of just over 10,000, it is the administrative and economic center of the Lanškroun region. The town also boasts a rich history, having been founded in the second half of the 13th century. The nearby Lanškroun pond nature reserve was established in 1990 – shortly before the SCHOTT site was founded – and is an important nesting place for migratory birds, as well as being a popular beauty spot.
