"Warehouse clearance on glass"

We are clearing our warehouse to make room for new stock

We need space because we are expanding our machinery for processing our glasses and ZERODUR® to include a 4m-long CNC machine. For this reason, we will be emptying part of our warehouse and can therefore now offer you the following glass types at a preferential discount of 25%:


This offer is valid until the end of December 2016 for order volumes of 20 kg and more per glass type and only while supplies last.

Furthermore, we are pleased to inform you that we have managed to keep the prices of our high-quality optical glasses stable despite rising energy costs and are thus extending the validity of our price list “SCHOTT Optical Glass - fine annealed” until December 31, 2016!
