Who we are
From big celebrations to just the two of us: it all starts with a drink. Ayano is proud to be part of countless unforgettable moments.
How do you find the perfect visual and tactile experience for your brand? The Ayano design lab is set up for precisely this quest. Our creatives are well-versed in materials and options. The eye-catching concepts they present, will work equally well in practice.
Ayano operates the most modern facility of its kind. We offer high quality options to decorate all types of glasses and bottles. Extensive automation makes production cost-effective even for small batches. And our workforce enjoys safe and healthy working conditions.
With a fragile product, logistics is a very important piece of the puzzle. Ayano manages a worldwide network of factories, warehouses and agents. We are partnering with clients to create optimal routing, reducing costs and minimising carbon emission.
What you serve, sets the tone. How you present it, makes the music. Since 1962 we have been following our passion for glassware. This year we will produce 100 million glasses and bottles, commissioned by established names as well as innovative newcomers.
