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 such as Wilhelm WagenfeldWilliam BrownHelmut DemaryAloys Ferdinand GangkofnerHorst Tüselmann and many others.

In the 1950s 1500 people were working for the company. They also produced glass parts and complete lamps for other light companies in Europe, such as Raak from The Netherlands, Massive from Belgium and many others.

In 1995 the production of glass and lighting moved to SloveniaPoland 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 conference center.
