I am very pleased to note any visitor to our new Ceramicx factory will find great difficulty in discerning the past footprint of the previous space: This has been superseded, reconfigured and elevated into two storeys in many parts. The completion of the 1800m2 expansion to our production facility has led to the ability to double capacity for manufacture.
We have set hard targets for these new facilities. The previous infrastructure succeeded in achieving an average of 15% annual growth figure through the past five years. The new facilities therefore have a high benchmark to outperform.
I am more than confident that we can do it. Wherever we find ourselves Ceramicx maintains a ‘can do’ spirit that has enabled us to export over 95% of our production to 65 countries worldwide.
The unsurpassed surroundings of West Cork and our new facilities are, of course, great assets for our business and we intend to exploit them to our fullest capability.
