CeramTec GmbH, headquartered in Plochingen, Germany, has announced plans to expand its manufacturing facility in the Bavarian town of Marktredwitz. The development is set to include a further production hall and, subject to official approval, the company hopes to begin construction in 2023.

“Our well-filled order books make it necessary for us to expand capacities,” stated Dr Hadi Saleh, Chief Executive Officer. “At the Marktredwitz site, we have already been able to count on an extremely reliable and sustainable network of employees and partners in the past. We are therefore pleased to be able to further expand our presence in Marktredwitz and thus also play an even more important role as an employer in the region in the future.

The new building is to be designed with a focus on sustainability. “In the CeramTec Group, we introduced measures for an even more conscious use of energy some time ago and have already implemented various projects and measures. The new building offers us excellent opportunities to produce even more energy-efficiently and sustainably in the future and thus make an important contribution to the energy transition in Germany,” added Dr Saleh.

CeramTec currently employs more than 800 people at its Marktredwitz site.
