We are excited to announce that Stölzle Lausitz has strengthened its Management with the appointment of Ronald Brieger (55) as Co-Managing Director with responsibilities for the areas of production, technology and glass decoration. His remit covers the entire technical part of glass production from the design of new glasses through to shipping. Johann Nagl remains as Managing Director responsible for the areas of Sales, Marketing, E-commerce as well as Finance and Controlling.
Ronald Brieger has been involved in the mechanical glass production at Weisswasser for many years. The Mechanical Engineering graduate previously worked as a Plant Manager in the Stölzle Lausitz glass factory. After joining the plant in 1989, he was initially responsible for the machine park and maintenance prior to becoming Plant Manager in 2008. Brieger is married and has two children. He particularly likes to use his free time for extensive cycling tours in the nearby countryside as well as further surroundings.
Brieger's appointment as Co-Managing Director at Stölzle Lausitz GmbH by Dr. Cornelius Grupp, Owner of Stölzle Lausitz GmbH, was seen as a sign of the appreciation of his previous performance as well as an expression of the trust and belief that the high quality level in the production of machine-blown drinking glasses in Weisswasser could be further developed.
The requirements in the high-quality goblet glass industry have grown extensively in recent years. “Ronald Brieger has shown superb judgement in perfecting the pulled stem process and has had great success. With his production team, he managed to create such noble and finely blown glasses that can hardly be distinguished from mouth-blown glasses.” says Johann Nagl. He is looking forward to working together in the newly created consortium and sees strengthening the technical competence in the Management as a valuable basis for the further development of the glass specialist.
This time Jay's pick is just a little bit unusual, so you'll definitely want to hear what Jay has to say on this one!
