Ceramaret SA based in Bôle, Switzerland, is delighted to announce the acquisition of MicroCeram GmbH from Meissen, Germany. This transaction was completed on April 27, 2018 with retroactive effect to January 1, 2018.
Ceramaret, a leader in the design and manufacture of high precision components in advanced ceramics for analytical and fluid-handling systems, was looking to expand its presence in Germany. With MicroCeram, Ceramaret has found a high-quality local partner with a presence in attractive markets and in complementary technologies.
MicroCeram, who employs more than 40 staff, specialises in producing complex components in aluminium and zirconium oxides. This growing company also excels in developing specialist materials tailored to customers’ needs. Seeking a solution for the future development of his company and aware of the challenges posed by a fast-paced market, the founder and owner of MicroCeram, Mr. Mathias Wilde, decided to merge his company with a partner who has the necessary expertise to leverage MicroCeram potential and accumulated experience.
We are looking forward to pooling the resources of Ceramaret and MicroCeram; thus bringing a more extensive range of products and services, as well as higher production capacity to all our customers.
Mr. Wilde will remain in charge of MicroCeram and will join the Ceramaret management team. The commercial organisation will offer both companies' services in a unified manner, without major changes for the time being. In the long term, the workflow between the different sites may be optimised to allow for optimum growth. The quality of our products as well as the punctuality of our deliveries will remain at the extremely high standards our customers have come to expect.
