CONSUMER TECH. Enabling the digital future

Our world is more connected than ever before. All-new devices like foldable phones are finding their way into everyday life, while augmented reality (AR) is getting closer to mainstream consumer use. Specialty glass from SCHOTT is often a core element of unprecedented device designs: As an ultra-flexible cover glass for foldable smartphones (Xensation® Flex) or as a strong cover glass for smartphone displays with outstanding set drop performance (Xensation® α), a substrate for 5G antenna technology, or as a high-index glass wafer for Augmented Reality (SCHOTT RealView®) –  our cutting-edge products are not always visible, but always there.

Kitchen of the Future

SCHOTT CERAN®. An icon in the kitchen

Half a century ago, it revolutionized cooking. Today, it's impossible to imagine the kitchen without a black, glass-ceramic cooktop. Originally designed for giant telescopes and satellites to find new galaxies, the material is now setting the trends in the kitchen. With more than 200 million units sold, the original CERAN® cooktop has been the market leader for years and makes new appliance functions and designs possible. Even after 50 years, it continues to set new standards for tomorrow's kitchens.

ZERODUR® for the ELT

ZERODUR®. Mirror substrates for the ELT

For astronomers, broadening horizons means reaching for the stars. The European Southern Observatory (ESO) helps to make this happen. Currently ESO is working on the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), the world´s most powerful telescope. SCHOTT is participating in this exciting project in manufacturing the substrate material for a total of four out of five mirrors. Due to its unique properties, the glass-ceramic ZERODUR® enables extreme shape accuracy and ensures sharp images from space. The glass experts are currently producing the substrates made of the glass-ceramic ZERODUR® for the segmented 39-m-primary mirror. The ELT is scheduled to have its “First Light” in 2025.

ANNUAL RESULTS. Successful fiscal year and record investments

SCHOTT is growing strongly and reported positive financial results for the 2020/21 fiscal year. This development was particularly driven by exceptional demand in the household appliances sector. Products for the pharmaceutical industry also contributed to achieving these positive results. The previously planned investment of 350 million euros was realized, mainly in Germany, China, and the USA, resulting in over 1,000 new jobs. A record investment of 450 million euros is expected to lay the foundation for further growth in the next fiscal year. However, rising energy, raw material, and logistics costs, and strained supply chains pose new challenges.
