600 years of experience in the SORG design office
The SORG design office is the largest single department in the Company, with 37 persons currently working there. We thought it would be interesting to check how long all these people have been in the department, i.e. the total length of experience available to the Company.
We were quite surprised to find that the total exceeded 600 years !
And this figure does not include the furnace and forehearth engineers who are responsible for the technology.
In a business that relies so much on experience, this is a clear indication of the strength of the SORG organisation. Is there any other independent furnace design company active in the glass industry that can match (or exceed) that ? We think not.
