Zwiesel KristallGlas AG and Fortessa Tableware Solutions announced plans to further solidify their 20-year partnership through a merger.
“We share a strong vision for our future: We want to be the worldwide brands for all moments that make life special,” said Prof. Dr. Andreas Buske, CEO of Zwiesel Glas (pictured above, left). “Through the merger, around 900 people will work in the future to turn this vision into a reality.”
“Aside from the shared vision, the partnership brings promising economic opportunities. This is even more important in such challenging times as these. Together we can offer our customers, our companies, our brands and all the people who we work with strength and security into the future,” added Fortessa CEO Scott Hamberger (pictured above, right).
Moving forward, Zwiesel Kristallglas AG and Fortessa Tableware Solutions will continue to operate independently. Buske will continue to act as a member of the management board of Zwiesel Glas and as chairman of the supervisory board of Fortessa. Hamberger will remain CEO of Fortessa and become deputy chairman of the supervisory board of Zwiesel Glas.
