Pochet and Fives in electric glassmaking investment

French luxury glass manufacturer Pochet du Courval is to invest in an electric furnace supplied by Fives.

International engineering group Fives will design and supply an electric furnace for the Guimerville plant in Normandy.

Fives said its Prium E-Melt cold-top vertical melter furnace is one of the most advanced technologies available to significantly reduce CO2 emissions.

Pochet Group makes glass packaging for perfume, skincare and make-up and plans to reduce CO2 emissions of its production by 50% by the year 2033.

The melter is designed based on Fives’ significant electric melting operational experience.

“This electric furnace will be the very first French furnace dedicated to luxury bottles enabling us to offer carbon-free glass to perfume, skincare and make-up brands that will deliver tomorrow’s beauty,” said Benoit Marszalek, Pochet du Courval’s Chief Operating Officer.
