CeramTec looks back on a successful business year in 2015

Sales mark of half a billion euros exceeded

The ceramic experts are pleased to draw a positive balance: CeramTec exceeded its sales record once again this past business year. With an increase of over 5 percent to €501 million, the ceramics manufacturer was able to build on the success of the previous business year.

CeramTec GmbH has 19 production sites around the world, making it one of the largest international manufacturers of ceramics for technically demanding applications. The previous business year was one of marked growth for the ceramic experts: The acquisition of US-based DAI Ceramics, investments in a new, ultra-modern kiln hall at the Marktredwitz site and the opening of a representative office in Istanbul, Turkey helped the ceramic experts chart a course for a successful future. The company also extended its production capacities, introduced new materials and expanded its product range: These measures enabled CeramTec to further increase its revenues in 2015.

"Reaching a sales mark of half a billion euros enabled us to exceed our record results achieved in 2014, not simply maintain them. This underscores the potential of advanced ceramics across all sectors and motivates us to accept new challenges with innovative ideas and top quality standards."
