HEINZ-GLAS has faced new challenges repeatedly since the 17th century. From the Thirty Years’ War to the fire disaster of 1904, in which the then almost 250-year-old village glassworks at Kleintettau burnt down to its foundations, to the Great Depression years, the Second World War and the division of Germany – with the East-West border drawn right through Kleintettau. All this has left its mark on the people here. Cohesion, a fighting spirit, an abundance of ideas, stamina and an indestructible will to pursue something to the end are the values that continue to drive us forward with success.
