Huta Szkła Gloss


The history of Huty Szkła Gloss dates back to 1968. It was then that Stanisław Glonek started a small, family company in Poniec, employing just a few people. At the very beginning, he set two goals for him and his company: the production of high-quality products and customer satisfaction. His entire activity was focused on that. This was the right strategy and crystals decorated in the manual grindery manufactured in the glassworks in Poniec quickly gained customer appreciation. Stanisław Glonek, however, was not the kind of person who would rest on his laurels. He wanted the company to develop and he did everything to make it happen. He invested in the modernization of the enterprise and the technologies applied there. In the 1990s, the automated line, manufacturing sodium glass, was launched and the production of decorative and lighting glass started.


Huta Szkła Gloss currently employs 80 people and it is still a family company based on solid foundations. It is managed by another generation of the Glonek family. The current owners proudly continue the family traditions and cherish the same values as Stanisław Glonek. Therefore the company relentlessly follows the demands of the contemporary market. It puts a lot of stress on cutting-edge technological solutions whereas the issues of environmental protection are a crucial aspect while making investment decisions. Huta Gloss proudly emphasizes that its ambition is to develop eco-friendly production. One of the instances of our care for the environment is the use of the eco-chimney. Hundreds of domestic and foreign clients appreciate not only the highest quality of the glass which is used for products manufactured in Poniec and the unique design of the products, but also the fact that the manufacturing process is eco-friendly. Such an attitude allows the company to continually gain new outlets.
