Peill + Putzler: Glashüttenwerk Peill und Sohn was founded in 1903 in Düren, a small town in West Germany. Peill und Sohn merged with Putzler (founded in 1869) in 1947 as a glass works and lighting company and became Peill & Putzler Glashüttenwerke.
The company always worked with important designers as Wilhelm Wagenfeld, William Brown, Helmut Demary, Aloys Ferdinand Gangkofner, Horst Tüselmann and so on.

In the 1950s 1500 people where working for the company.
In 1995 the production of glass and lights moved to Slovenia, Poland and the Czech Republic. Only the trading of lamps en glass stayed in Düren.  1 year after the 100st anniversary in 2004, bankruptcy was filed.

In 2007 the name Peill & Putzler was re-used for a while for the Wagenfeld lighting of the German lighting company of Paul Neuhaus.

Today the Peill & Putzler factory is called Glashütte Düren and is converted to many other businesses and a conference center.
