KYOCERA Fineceramics Europe GmbH KYOCERA Company
This is us. Innovation in ceramics.
KYOCERA Fineceramics Europe GmbH is a Kyocera Group company. We look back on a long tradition in the manufacturing of ceramic products: Founded in Mannheim in 1863 as a brickyard known as "Deutsche Steinzeug", and later as "Friedrichsfeld GmbH", from 1993, the ceramics department continued its successful development under the brand FRIATEC GmbH. Since September 2019 we have been part of Kyocera Group, a leading global ceramics and technology company. Kyocera companies benefit from the group’s cross-department way of thinking and working. We share our knowledge and bring it together to create something new – something that goes beyond our company, beyond different industries and countries. Because innovation and real milestones can only be achieved together. This is what we believe.
With our brands DEGUSSIT and FRIDURIT, we provide innovative solutions for numerous industries: system components for high-tech applications in electrical and sensor technology, mechanical engineering, analysis technology, medical and semiconductor technology, as well as laboratory technology. We possess internationally recognized know-how in the field of high-performance ceramics, especially for ceramic-to-metal assemblies. Our products are characterized by high quality, precision, and durability. Our production and development location in Central Europe and our customized supply-chain solutions make us extremely agile and ensure maximum reliability for our customers. We see ourselves as a partner in the development of high-performance ceramics solutions that provide added value for our customers and ensure their technological advantage in their respective markets. Our focus today is on where we want to be tomorrow – together.
