1952 - New beginnings 1952

The cheeky schoolboy, who helps in the production in 1962, is Josef II Irlbacher and thus the third generation.

After the chaos of the war, Josef I Irlbacher, son of Johann Irlbacher, resumes work in the company. The company is in need of new products. Until the late 1960s, the glass viewing window for the fuse screw caps, commonly used at the time, becomes a top seller. Initially manufactured by hand, Irlbacher soon devises a mechanical process to produce these glass plates cost-effectively, precisely and in large quantities.
