Fuchs Design GmbH was established in 2012 and is now one of the world’s leading companies for glass blocks and accessories.
The products are produced in five different factories according to the highest quality standards. In addition to classic building material and tile dealers, the central warehouse in Kerken also supplies DIY stores, distribution companies, assembly and craft businesses, as well as customers throughout Europe. The products are delivered in the required quantities, from one piece to full truckloads.
The special glass blocks manufactured in-house at the head office, which are used for fire protection applications, heat-insulating (THERMO BLOCK) facades or spectacular interior design applications, are even shipped worldwide from Kerken due to the extremely favourable logistic connections to the international seaports of Rotterdam and Antwerp. With the establishment of the branch office Fox Design Hong Kong LTD towards the end of 2014, the company joined forces to cover the needs of international wholesale customers through low-priced and fast direct distribution. In keeping up to date with new insulating requirements, a glass brick called THERMO BLOCK was developed, at which an UG-value of up to 0.8 is possible.
