High values and the passion for the material of glass unite all Stoelzle employees and let them become the foundation of our success.
Fascinating World of Glass
The passion for glass unites employees from all plants and offices of the Stoelzle Group. It is alive in the daily work of our employees and runs down from top management to workers on the production lines. Our employee-focused approach is driven by the leadership principles of the “5 Ts”: trust, transparency, target driven, teamwork and talent research.
Code of Conduct
We are committed not only to building long-term client relationships, but also to offering our highly trained employees a culture of mutual respect, flexibility and great motivation. These strengths have secured us a leading role in the Pharma, Spirits, Perfumery & Cosmetics and Consumer markets.

After attending the technical school for agriculture and food, Lydia did not have to think about it for long: like her father and grandfather she wanted to work at STOELZLE OBERGLAS. She started at the age of 19 in the mould workshop, where she prepared the moulds for production. In the summer of 2019, she switched to the hot end and started her 2-year training period to become a machine operator. This job, which is rather untypical for women, is physically very challenging. Lydia has always been technically interested and wanted to work physically. Lydia’s tasks include monitoring the production machine, troubleshooting, and checking bottles and weight. In her leisure time Lydia also works for the company’s fire department.
