Specialty glass manufacturer SCHOTT has invested €9 million in state of the art production technology and highly digital infrastructure in its Flat Glass production at SCHOTT Orim in Bolu, Turkey. SCHOTT Orim supplies design-savvy and innovative functional glasses to all the leading home appliance companies in Turkey and abroad. Its wide range of processed flat glass solutions enable features that add real value to home and living products – including retaining the heat inside ovens, making cookers easy to clean, illuminating refrigerators shelves, and turning steam hoods into design elements. The groundbreaking ceremony for the new building took place in July 2021, with production planned to begin in early 2022.

"The investment will increase the production capacity in Bolu by 50 percent and underlines the importance of the home appliance business to SCHOTT. The home appliance industry is an important pillar for us, reinforced by megatrends such as cocooning or urbanization, which result in people upgrading their home and living," states Dr. Heinz Kaiser, member of the SCHOTT Management Board. "Our commitment makes us an innovation partner that enables customers to turn product ideas into reality," says Kaiser.

SCHOTT has continuously invested in its home appliance manufacturing – almost €15 million in Turkey alone in the past five years. Alongside increased production capacity, the new infrastructure will create new employment, adding up a double-digit number of jobs per year to the current 700 employees.

The engagement in Turkey is part of SCHOTT’s global growth strategy: For the second year in a row, the SCHOTT technology group is running a record investment program, with €350 million being invested this financial year. All projects are on time despite the pandemic.
