Kyocera consolidates fineceramics business

Kyocera has consolidated its European ceramics business into a new independent company.

According to the company, its fineceramics business, including five offices and production sites in Mannheim and Selb, Germany, will be combined in a company called Kyocera Fineceramics Europe GmbH.

This restructuring is due to a growing sales market for fineceramics components in Europe, the company said.

Kyocera Fineceramics Europe will be headquartered in Mannheim with Dr Carsten Russner as president, previously MD of Kyocera Fineceramics Precision GmbH.

“Kyocera was already a successful manufacturer of fineceramics components in Japan when, in 1971, the company entered the German market,” said Dr Russner. “We are proud to expand our international business and strengthen our presence in Europe with this monumental step towards internationality and our client’s focus markets.”
