A Romanian company manufactures quality glass products using traditional methods (glassblowing) as well as upcycling methods. The company’s product portfolio includes glasses, vases and home-deco products. Aiming to expand its current list of suppliers, the company seeks new European business partners able to supply finishing materials for glass processing (i.e. silicon carbide and abrasive sheets).

Existing clients include home-deco retailers, companies active in the HoReCa industry (distributors for the HoReCa industry, as well as hotels, restaurants and coffee places), manufacturers of scented candles seeking container suppliers and companies active in the restauration of historic buildings.
