Ferro Purchases Tile Coatings Facility in Egypt

Now able to produce materials locally for the rapidly growing tile market in the Middle East and North Africa.

Published January 20, 2011
Ferro Corporation has completed the purchase of a newly constructed ceramic coatings plant in Fayoum, Egypt. The new plant will allow Ferro to more cost-effectively serve the growing tile manufacturing market in Egypt and other countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Ferro purchased the facility from principals of Pharaohs Ceramic Group and plans to install additional equipment to expand capacity. When the initial build-out of the facility is complete, Ferro expects the site to have the capacity to produce 200 million pounds of tile frit and glazes annually. Ferro Tile Coating Systems is a supplier of decoration materials used in the manufacture of ceramic tile, including frits, fluxes, colors, glazes and inks. In addition to the new site in Egypt, its main production facilities and technical laboratories are located in Almazora, Spain; Fiorano, Italy; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Americana, Brazil; Mexico City and Villagran, Mexico; Suzhou, China; Saraburi, Thailand; Bekasi and Sidoarjo, Indonesia; and Ansan City, Korea.
