Our tradition of producing glass balls dates back to 1991, when the company EcoGlass, s.r.o. was co-founded by Ing. Wolfgang Ginzel. Ginzel, s.r.o was founded in 2000 to specialize in the production of glass balls.
We offer beads and balls manufactured specificaly to customer requirements. These requirements focus mainly on two aspects.
Firstly the dimensions (guaranteed tolerance of diameter, roundness and surface quality).
Secondly the glass content and physical-chemical attributes (borosilicate glass, low-alkaline glass, special colored glass etc)
Technical products made from technical glasses are an important part of our product range. For example, accurate diopter, lab working plates and accurate measuring glass and glass with defined permeability in ultraviolet areas of light radiation. Our product line even includes sales of lances with finished stamped surfaces for lighting and display devices and techniques.
Decorative products are represented mainly by paperweights and furniture clips.
We conduct our own research and development for the manufacturing and processing of glass and we apply the results of this to glass industry practice. We enjoy to work with new projects which move us forward and open new possibilities to use glass and ceramic beads. First and formost, however, customer satisfaction is our top priority.
Our company turnover is c30 milion CZK p.a. and c95 % of products and services are exported to the EU.
Ginzel Technical Glass resides in our own buildings in Loděnice near Prague. We have our own warehouse with approximately 25 tons of stock covering the whole range of our products including Kugler-Color rods and granules.
We operate a small manufacturing workshop for the production of special types of glass beads and balls and in 2011 we opened our unique laboratory for the precision measuring and sorting of beads. In January 2011 we opened a shop in Loděnice specializing in the sale of glass beads and balls, the only one of its type in the Czech Republic.
We are well known for our support of the Czech Marbles Union (Český kuličkový svaz), as the game of marbles is a very traditional and popular game in the Czech Republic.
