Florian Lindlbauer

Okalux Glastechnik GmbH has passed the consolidation phase following an acquisition by the Glas Trösch Group. In addition, Florian Lindlbauer recently was named managing director, assuming responsibility for the glass manufacturer based in Marktheidenfeld in southern Germany.

Okalux is now a part of a Swiss family company with a tradition in glass manufacturing that goes back more than a century. The realignment includes enhanced expertise in the resource of daylight, expanded international project business and investments in new and intelligent glass solutions, according to the company.

With the new motto, “.Light loves glass,” the company is underlining its competence and passion for highly specialized glass solutions, according to the company. The dot that precedes the claim represents the attitude of always taking the resource of daylight as the decisive starting point for finding a solution. The aim is to achieve balance between optimal utilization, visual comfort, maximum energy efficiency and architectural aspirations.

“We love to explore the limits of the feasible,” says Lindlbauer.

Being an engineer in the field of windows and façades, he held a variety of management positions in the Glas Trösch Group over the past eight years, most recently as head of Sanco consulting.

“As an independent product brand within the group, we share the strong values and stringent quality standards of the Swiss family company,” he says.
