Proven for Generations

The company SiLi was founded in 1854 by Sigmund Lindner. Today, operating the family-owned business in the 5th generation, we are well established as one of the most important manufacturers and distributors in the field of technical glass and ceramic beads as well as effect glitters worldwide.

Constant Expansions and Improvement

Our highly specialized products SiLiglit and SiLibeads have traditionally been produced ever since in Germany at the Warmensteinach company site by using processes of our own design and development.

The various manufacturing processes are permanently optimized and production capacity is being expanded continuously. In 1999 a new administration building and a warehouse were built.

In 2001 we invested in an advanced production line for manufacturing a new bead type. Since then the Warmensteinach site has been expanded continuously.

In 2005 a joint venture in China was founded, thus strengthening our position on the Asian market in the long term.

We are strongly engaged in and actively promote R&D of new manufacturing technologies.

Worldwide Presence

SiLi products are at home everywhere. A worldwide export network in over 80 countries and our own sales offices in England, France and Moscow as well as subsidiaries in the USA and China demonstrate the steady expansion of our international presence. This course of expansion continues on all continents, especially in Asia, making us a global player in a niche market of technical glass and ceramic beads as well as for decorative glitter.

Close proximity to our customers and their needs remains our top priority in a constantly changing world.
