It all began with a creative flare and a dream to pair craftsmanship with superior bottle quality.
Upon moving to China, Henri Berthe worked in the distillery industry for several years. Once clients began asking him about creating unique glass bottles for their brandy and cognac, he seized the opportunity and acquired a glass factory, for which he began sketching and designing custom-made bottles himself. In 2005, he developed the first French family-owned glass and ceramic bottle manufacturing plant in China.
Henri Berthe comes from a family of carpenters and craftsmen, which no doubt has had an impact on his creativity and vision. He has an eye for design and a talent for recognizing the importance of balancing creativity with production processes. Innovation and forward-thinking management practices have seen Rockwood grow to become China’s largest bespoke glass and ceramic bottle factory, producing over 650 million bottles annually.
As General Manager, Jane oversees Rockwood’s project managers and ensures quality control and problem-solving practices across the factories. Jane is recognized for her business ethic, professional spirit, and technical eye. She is a master in bottle manufacturing processes and knows all of Rockwood’s bespoke bottle design details inside and out. Jane speaks fluent Mandarin and English and has a good understanding of the French language. She has an MBA from CEIBS (China Europe International Business School), the most renowned business school in Asia.
As Rockwood’s International Sales & Marketing Manager, Caroline brings a very human touch to client relations. Her empathetic personality and experience in sales and marketing, make her the perfect bridge between clients in locations ranging from Italy to California, Rockwood’s international teams, and the Rockwood factories in China. She is multi-cultural, speaks English, French, and Spanish, and is well versed in cultural nuances and client expectations. Based in Paris, France, Caroline is easily reachable regardless of time-zone differences. She is the daughter of Rockwood CEO Henri Berthe and has been immersed in the industry from a young age.
