Christian Quenett has been named BV Glas president. The organization represents around 80% of German glass manufacturing companies. Its goal is to highlight the environmental, economic and energy policy interests of German glass companies.
Quenett is also the head of NSG Group’s architectural glass division in Europe. He is the first member from NSG to head BV Glas.
In his new role, Quenett will communicate with politicians and scientists to represent the interests of the glass industry in the national legislative process and, in particular, in the energy policy framework. He will hold the position for the next two years.
“As we all in NSG Group know, the glass industry has been facing ever greater challenges in recent years,” says Quenett. “Not only have we had to manage the current economic downturn, but we are also dealing with a major transformation of the glass industry.”
