Modernity meets history: Vetropack Moravia celebrates 140 years of glass manufacturing and introduces new technologies
This September, Vetropack Moravia Glass, a.s., the Czech subsidiary of the Vetropack Group, celebrates its 140th anniversary. The glassworks was founded in 1883 in the South Moravian town of Kyjov and has been operating under the name of Vetropack Moravia Glass, a.s. since 1991. The glass factory has not only endured the test of time but has also transformed into a modern plant serving the needs of the Central European economic area.
The future of the returnable bottle: Vetropack at BrauBeviale 2023
The Vetropack Group, one of Europe's leading glass packaging manufacturers, will be demonstrating how a revolutionary idea became a practical and environmentally friendly solution from 28 till 30 November at BrauBeviale. In Austria, the company is working on a pool system for returnables together with other stakeholders. The specially designed 0.33l bottles are robust and durable thanks to Vetropack's Echovai technology – and yet as light as a disposable bottle. Visitors to BrauBeviale can also see the company's service portfolio and design expertise at booth 319 in hall 4A.
Ad hoc announcement in accordance with Art. 53 of the Listing Rules – Double-digit growth in local currency
Amid a market environment that remains tense and volatile, the Vetropack Group can report positive performance in the first half of 2023. During the first six months of this year, we increased our net sales from goods and services by 9.9% (or 13.9% after adjusting for currency effects) to CHF 477.9 million (prior year: CHF 435.0 million.) Consolidated EBIT rose to CHF 70.1 million (prior year: CHF 48.3 million). After 2022 – a year heavily impacted by the war in Ukraine – this puts Vetropack back on track for growth, with innovative products and state-of-the-art plants as key drivers of our business.
Sustainability at Vetropack
For many decades already, our thinking has been shaped not only by economics but also by ecology. Recycling is a key element of our sustainability strategy. That's why about 60 percent of the glass we produce consists of used glass.
