In 2009, the Cristallerie de Saint Paul initiated its diversification. This new orientation required big investments for the manufacturing as well as for the R&D part.
The company has now 9 employees divided as follows:
- Administrative and commercial part 2 persons
- Manufacturing 5 persons working in shifts of 8 hours
- Quality control laboratory and R&D 2 persons
In order to meet your needs as best as we can, we have three tilting furnaces, two of which are used for the manufacturing of large volumes (batch of 250 kg) and the third one, with a lower capacity, enables us to finalize the development of new compositions (batch of 30 kg). For the development of high purity glasses, we have set up a new pot furnace; this tool guarantees a production perfectly refined and exempt from batch stone.
Our total capacity for the melting part is around 250 T/year.
These glasses can also be sold in the form of powders with various particle sizes. Thanks to different grinding technologies, we can develop powders from a few microns to several hundreds of microns.
