FAQ

Who is DECO GLAS?

DECO GLAS successfully developed its own market with the industrial decoration of packaging glass. Today we are the European market leader in the decoration of glass and ceramic and export to more than 30 countries worldwide.

At the company’s site in Montabaur, around 150 employees work in multiple shifts and ensure that more than 170 million bottles and glass containers are refined into high-quality glass packaging every year. Renowned customers in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries count on the company’s many years of experience and expertise. With a great deal of passion for innovative and creative solutions, our specialists realise almost every requirement.

How long has DECO GLAS been in existence?

DECO GLAS was founded in 1971. The DECO GLAS GmbH is primarily the work of Peter Böttger. He started with splinter protection coatings for the Merck company in a small workshop in Selters/Westerwald. It soon became apparent that Peter Böttger had discovered a market niche. The owner-managed company, which is now based in Montabaur, has succeeded in turning high-tech demands and a family atmosphere into a model for success. Through continuous investment in high-tech machinery and with the knowledge and commitment of the entire team, we give our customers the edge they need to shine in the market.

Does DECO GLAS also decorate drinking glasses?

No, we only decorate glass containers/bottles or ceramic containers.

From what quantities does DECO GLAS produce / Is there a minimum order quantity?

Our minimum quantities for printing are 3 pallets (approx. 3,000 bottles depending on the type of bottle) and 5 pallets (approx. 5,000 bottles depending on the type of bottle) in the coating. The minimum quantity applies per print motif or per glass size/shape.

Can the minimum quantity be divided into different glass sizes/shapes?

Pallets can only be processed by type. It is not possible to subdivide or fill different glass types on one pallet.

No, but here too we make our extensive network of manufacturers, glass dealers or glassworks available to you and advise you on your choice.

Do I receive a price list from DECO GLAS?

We evaluate each project individually, as prices are highly dependent on the chosen production process in conjunction with the desired quantities. It is important to us that you receive an individually tailored and competitive offer. Accordingly, we do not offer a price list.

How quickly will I receive a price indication?

If we have the desired quantity, a bottle drawing and a visualisation or the print image (front and back) of the product to specify the printing process, you will receive an initial price indication at short notice. You will receive a binding offer after all relevant production parameters have been determined in the course of production sampling.

Do you produce production samples?
