Expertise in the design of glass and ceramic packaging

Everything started more than 50 years ago with some special orders for the pharmaceutical industry. Since then, we have expanded our expertise and we now successfully work with companies in sectors such as food and beverage, chemistry, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

Our mission

“If there is no readily available solution, we simply create one!”

The motto of our company founder Peter Böttger perfectly describes the mission of DECO GLAS.

As the European market leader in the field of decoration and bottle design for glass packaging, we export our products globally to over 30 countries. For more than 50 years, we have been setting new benchmarks for glass bottle design. This is how we made our name as an innovator in our sector.

As an owner-managed company with its headquarters in Montabaur, we are passionate about the connection between state-of-the-art technology and a family-like atmosphere. With continued investments in high-tech machines, our know-how and the engagement of our entire team, we are striving to achieve the same goal: To provide our customers with the deciding advantage so that their products can shine on the market.
