Board of Management of SCHOTT AG: Dr. Frank Heinricht (Chairman, center), Klaus Rübenthaler (left) and Dr. Hans-Joachim Konz (right)
Dear readers,

Improving existing and developing new products, materials and technologies are key prerequisites to achieving growth and creating value. As the Board of Management, we will be attaching particu- lar importance to innovations and technological progress for the benefit of our customers.

SCHOTT looks back on many years of experience not only in its traditional core areas of expertise special glass and glass-ceramics, but also in advanced materials and technologies. We owe this to our highly qualified researchers, engineers and technicians and their tightly knit international network within the group. We also benefit from dynamic development by working with partners at research institutes and universities and through joint projects involving experts from other companies. The main focus is always on achieving success through innovation and developing future markets for both ourselves and our customers.

This edition of our redesigned technology magazine “solutions” will give you an insight into innovations and technologies that either involve or are “made by” SCHOTT. And it also shows how both the market and our customers benefit. Based on its broad expertise in the area of special glass, materials and advanced technologies, SCHOTT not only offers unique solutions that can help you today, but that also hold high potential for meeting tomorrow’s challenges.

We wish you informative reading.
Dr. Frank Heinricht
Klaus Rübenthaler
