Glashütte Lamberts of Germany, recognized as the world leader in the production of mouth-blown sheet glasses, is now under the new leadership of Mr. Hans Reiner Meindl. After 28 years at the head of the family business, Stephan Lamberts will remain as consultant.
Mr. Meindl has extensive experience in the glass industry. He now concludes a 10-year career at Heinz Holding GmbH., a leading international manufacturer of perfume bottles, leaving his current position as managing director. Mr. Meindl is expected to bring the business forward through his experience, the expertise of Glashütte Lamberts’ staff, and the factory’s long-standing relationships with global business partners. Lamberts’ partnership with Bendheim, the exclusive distributor of Lamberts glass in North America, has endured for three generations.
“We are confident Mr. Meindl will build on Lamberts’ foundation of traditional glassblowing methods and technological knowledge to increase their capabilities and range of products,” said Robert Jayson, President of Bendheim. “We look forward to the continued growth of our 70-year partnership with Lamberts.”
