A Reward to celebrate its 200th anniversary
At a reception in Paris on September 18 attended by more than 110 people, Mr. Alexis Govciyan, Director of the ISM (Institut Supérieur des Métiers, Higher Institute of Trades), presented to Dr Cornelius Grupp, owner and Etienne Gruyez, CEO of Stoelzle Masnieres Parfumerie SAS (formerly Verreries de Masnieres), the “ENTREPRISE DU PATRIMOINE VIVANT” (EPV, or Living Heritage Enterprise) label granted in recognition of companies that have achieved excellence in industrial expertise.
200 years after its founding in 1818, 2018 is a year of tremendous pride for the co-workers at the French innovation and excellence center of Stölzle Glass Group. Since joining the group in 2014, its thriving operations, know-how and capacity to adapt to the needs of its clients (Estée Lauder, Givenchy, L’Oreal….) have enabled Stoelzle Masnieres Parfumerie SAS to meet every challenge.
The industrial complex is located in Masnières, 190 km (120 miles) north of Paris in the dynamic Hauts de France region. It comprises two entities: Stoelzle Masnieres Parfumerie SAS, specializing in the production of high-end glass bottles and jars, primarily for the perfumery-cosmetics sector, and Stoelzle Masnieres Parfumerie Decoration SAS, specializing in innovative, leading-edge glass decoration techniques, including Quali Glass Coat 2.0, a newly developed powder paint decoration process.
To mark this exceptional anniversary year, various events have been held throughout 2018. Following two festive days devoted exclusively to the employees and their families, on June 22 and 23, on September 15 the company opened its doors to the public for the Journée de la Patrimoine (France’s annual heritage festival). Lastly, to bring this momentous year to an end, clients, co-workers and friends were invited to a celebratory evening on September 18 at the Chalet des Iles in Paris, ending with a spectacular fireworks display. Energized and inspired, the company’s team is already headed for a new era and new successes.
