LuxePack 2017: Gerresheimer showcases its stylish opal glass bottles and jars

Düsseldorf/Monaco, September 07, 2017.  Gerresheimer’s top highlight at this year’s LuxePack trade fair is opal glass. Many of Gerresheimer’s high-profile customers rely on the cool and glossy elegance of the white glass to market their cosmetics and fragrances. However, other high-quality products can also make an impact in eye-catching bottles and jars made from opal glass. A new furnace for opal glass will also ensure that the glass retains its high quality in the future. Only recently, Mäurer & Wirtz, one of Gerresheimer’s most important customers, honored the company with its “Best Supplier Award.”

“Opal glass is currently experiencing a remarkable revival,” explains Bernd Stauch, Senior Director Sales Cosmetics. “Not only has it been discovered by the fragrance and cosmetics sector, but it is also ideal for bottling high-quality spirits, for example, such as the stylish bottle used for ‘Generous Gin.’” The Gerresheimer Group’s opal glass furnace is located at Gerresheimer Momignies in Belgium. Recently overhauled, it is equipped with enhanced technology and is more environmentally friendly than its predecessor.

Opal glass captivates the eye with its cool elegance and can perfectly convey the identity of the brand with decorative elements.
