The nominations for the Lower Saxony Foreign Trade Award 2023 have been announced – and we are in!

We are one of three companies nominated for the Lower Saxony Foreign Trade Award 2023 in the SME category! After the challenges we faced in the past years, we are even more delighted that we were able to convince with our philosophy, our story and our successes.

Export success despite permanent crisis“ – this is the motto of this year’s Foreign Trade Day, during which the award will be presented. And this motto describes our path over the last few years: despite, or perhaps because of, travel restrictions, supply chain pressures, inflation, price fluctuations, rising energy costs and other challenges, we have been able to prove ourselves and are now stronger than ever.

Our long-standing focus on energy-efficient kilns is now proving to be spot on; with competence, efficiency and innovation, we are in a very good position. Flexibility, creativity and a great team keep us moving forward, further towards the kiln of the future and a more sustainable ceramic industry.

This is also confirmed by the nomination of the expert jury consisting of representatives of the Investitions- und Förderbank Niedersachsen – NBank, NORD/LB, IHK Hannover, NiedersachsenMetall, the Lower Saxony business associations, the state representation of the Lower Saxony chambers of crafts, AGA Unternehmensverband and Deutsche Messe AG under the chairmanship of State Secretary Frank Doods. Many thanks to all involved!

For our customers – and the future!

Internationally, we convince with customised solutions for every need, highest quality thanks to engineering with experience and expertise, close-knit support and maximum reliability. Investing in a Keramischer OFENBAU plant is therefore always a sustainable investment in the future; it enables maximum quality of ceramic production for years and decades. The quality of our plants and our reliable service – that builds trust. And trusting cooperation is part of our recipe for success. Because what is more convincing than really good work?

We approach kiln systems holistically. That’s why we not only build new efficient plants, but also upgrade existing plants. Thanks to EnerViT, up to 50 % emissions can be saved by halving gas consumption. This generates economical kilns that, with EnerViT H2 ready, are even prepared for the complete elimination of fossil fuels.

Nominated – not the first time!

We were already among the lucky nominees in our last application 10 years ago – what an honour to be included again this year. In 2013, we thought about energy efficiency in every project. That has not changed. In the past decade, we have expanded our team, moved, learned a lot and perfected our product. We have never lost sight of the kiln of the future. Also, we have been able to prove several times how flexible, resilient and creative we are in critical times. We countered travel restrictions with AR glasses, supply chain problems with diversification. Of course, we have continued to digitalise, network, overcome challenges and become stronger.

Nomination Foreign Trade Award

Today, ceramic products are fired in our kilns on five continents in 50 countries. Seven of the top ten producers of sanitary ware use our technology and our great team keeps growing. We can be really proud of this development!

How fantastic that the Lower Saxony Ministry of Economy, Transport, Building and Digitalisation also acknowledges our strengths. We are very much looking forward to the award ceremony on 19 April at the Hannover Messe!
