Stölzle Lausitz a Success Story: Long-Time Managing Director Johann Nagl Retires


Weißwasser (Germany). Johann Nagl retired as Managing Director of Stölzle Lausitz GmbH on 30 June 2021. In his more than 15-year management position at the German glass manufacturer, he made a significant contribution to the transformation of the company from an industrial glass manufacturer and brand supplier to an independent brand manufacturer for drinking glasses, carafes, decanters and jugs, setting an important course for the future.

"Johann Nagl has decisively shaped the important years of Stölzle Lausitz with his level-headed manner and his long-term decisions. Thanks to him, the company has become a brand that has a name around the world and stands for premium quality," thanks Dr Cornelius Grupp, owner of CAG Holding, the parent company of Stölzle Lausitz GmbH, him.

"The transformation of the brand was as exciting as it was challenging and I am delighted that we have achieved this together with the entire team. For me, the focus was always on the people I worked with, whether they were employees, customers or service providers," says Johann Nagl.

Stölzle Lausitz is one of the leading international specialists for high-quality drinking glasses. In recent years, the plant in Weißwasser has been significantly expanded. A new logistics system is being set up to support the growth of the brand in the B2C sector and e-commerce. Through increased cooperation with sommeliers and designers, the range has been expanded and new glass series such as STARlight have been launched. This goblet glass series is so noble and finely blown that it can hardly be distinguished from mouth-blown glasses.

The team around Managing Director Ronald Brieger will continue the successful growth course. Ronald Brieger joined the management team in May 2020, after having managed the production plant for a long time.
