Kinon – Vetrotech becomes one organization

Vetrotech Saint-Gobain Kinon – One contact for all your Marine Glass needs Vetrotech Saint-Gobain Kinon Site in Aachen, Germany

Vetrotech is proud to announce changes within their organization aimed at improving service to the Marine and Offshore Glass customers. Kinon Aachen GmbH (a Saint-Gobain company since 1952) has a long history as supplier to the Marine and Offshore industry, focusing on special glass compositions which respond to the specific life safety, performance and comfort needs at sea. Kinon recently became a part of Vetrotech Saint-Gobain International AG, well known for its high quality, specialized fire resistant glass for both the building and the marine sectors since 1980. The Vetrotech marine activities previously operated out of Vetrotech Saint-Gobain Benelux will now be managed out of the office in Aachen, Germany per 1st of October 2013. 

With the integration of Kinon within Vetrotech, now a complete marine product range can be offered, under one “umbrella” located in Aachen:
• THERMOVIT® electrically heated glass
• CONTRAFLAM® fire resistant glass A0 up to H-120 (blast resistant acc. to NORSOK regulations)
• STADIP® MARINE laminated light weight safety glass
• CLIMAPLUS® KM ULTIMATE high-performance solar control solutions

Guido Plum, Managing Director Vetrotech Saint-Gobain Kinon GmbH explains: “All of this will now be available at Vetrotech Saint-Gobain Kinon – your “one-stop-shop” for all Marine Glass needs, with the big advantage of having the main production plant and sales office at one single location. Offering direct contact lines and more efficient information about for example the current production status at any time. We are looking forward to a successful and close working relationship and a bright future together with our customers and partners.” For inquiries or questions about Marine Glass – please contact Mr. Ruud van der Sterren.
