New furnace fires up at Stoelzle Masnières

For Etienne Gruyez, CEO of glassmaker Stoelzle Masnières, investing in a new furnace at the historic perfumery site is the way forward in light of the unprecedented crisis facing the sector.

On January 8th of this year, Stoelzle Masnière’s new furnace came into service, along with a fifth production line, the fruit of a €20m investment. The furnace will boost capacity by 30% to reach more than 100 tons. “A positive message for our teams and our customers,” comments CEO Etienne Gruyez in a statement.

In March 2020, production at Masnières was at a standstill, both for glass production and decoration. In May, the glassmaker re-opened two lines to reach 50% capacity. "In 2020, an extremely difficult year for all industries, Masnières made the right choice by shuttering production for two months over the summer and scheduling the reconstruction of the furnace at the end of the year, which allowed to limit the effects of the crisis,” notes Gruyez.

Stoelzle Masnières, specialized in the production of fragrance and cosmetics glass as well as decoration, employs a staff of 338.
