A technological pioneer

Schönwald sets new technological standards and continuously invests in research and development. In 2009, for example, a new fast firing kiln with the world’s most modern firing technology was commissioned. This gives us a flexibility that was hitherto unknown in the industry, and has allowed us to step up our overall annual production capacity to 45 million pieces / 13,000 tons of porcelain. Energy and fuel consumption have been significantly reduced – environmental and cost-saving factors that give us a competitive edge.
