SCHOTT North America, Inc. today announced the creation of SCHOTT Defense, legally known as SCHOTT Government Services, LLC, marking the final stage in the planned strategic separation between SCHOTT North America, Inc. and its defense segment. As part of SCHOTT Defense’s formation, General Michael Williams, USMC (Ret.), Dr. Marvin Sandbur, and General John Corley, USAF (Ret.), will bring years of defense and manufacturing expertise to the company as Outside Directors to the Board.

SCHOTT has been a leading supplier of advanced and high-performance glass technologies to the U.S. defense market for more than 40 years and established a U.S. based business development and liaison office in Washington in 2007 to improve the interface between government requirements generation functions, program managers, defense costumers, and SCHOTT’s U.S. based manufacturing sites. SCHOTT Defense currently collaborates with the U.S. Federal Government and prime contractors on research and development projects and procurement initiatives to improve the warfighter’s ability to confront the military challenges of the 21st century. SCHOTT’s highly durable glass and glass-ceramic materials and components are key enablers for a broad range of military equipment, including tactical wheeled military vehicle armor, night vision systems, directed energy programs, and sensitive ordnance and missile systems.

“The final completion of the SCHOTT Defense transition allows us to further strengthen and secure our long-term partnership with the U.S. military, as well as optimize market access to the most sensitive U.S. defense, intelligence, and homeland security programs,” said Major General Scott Custer, USAF (Ret.), President and CEO of SCHOTT Defense. “As the defense community continues to seek sensitive technology solutions to enhance operational capability and performance, SCHOTT Defense now has more access and flexibility to deliver innovations to protect the warfighter while reducing redundancy and minimizing life cycle costs.”
