The industry of glass, fashion jewellery, ceramics and china is a traditional branch of the processing industry in the Czech Republic. It has been and still is strongly oriented to export. Its total share on revenues of the processing industry ranges about 4.5 % and the share on export about 3 %. In spite of the fact that it belongs to the smallest branches, its export output is high. It shares on the balance of foreign trade of the processing industry with about 13 %.
The Export Directory of the Fashion Jewellery, Glass, China and Ceramic Industries of the Czech Republic was published in 2001 for the promotion of export activities and it became very popular. Its goal was to increase the quality and to make a communication between foreign customers and Czech producers more accessible.
Since 2001 many changes appeared and, therefore, the Association of the Glass and Ceramic Industry of the Czech Republic, the Czech Union of Fashion Jewellery Producers and the Silicate Union decided to present this Directory in an updated form. You will find not only the foremost producers of glass, fashion jewellery, china and ceramics but also suppliers of machinery and equipment, raw materials, and also specialized schools in the Directory. The Directory is clearly arranged in a user friendly form.
The number of companies in the Directory is not definite. We suppose, that it will be continuously added according to the interest of companies. The goal is to bring a complete list of glass, fashion jewellery, ceramics and china producers in its final form.
We believe that the Directory will contribute to make new contacts and to improve significantly knowledge of Czech producers. We are glad to present the latest version of the Export Directory of the Fashion Jewellery, Glass, China and Ceramic Industries of the Czech Republic to you and we look forward to the next cooperation.
