Glasriket General information about the swedish glass manufacturers

In the 1990′s there was a strong concentration within the glas works resulting in just a few remaining independent companies. Nowadays there are luckily again some new glass works coming into the market, which do improve the diversification and individuality of glass design. Still, also in 2015 known companies like Johanfors or Lindhammar were shut down for good.
