Ferro Corp. has commissioned its new tile color plant in Castellon, Spain, a year after breaking ground. The plant includes approximately 12,000 square meters (approximately 129,000 square feet) for production, quality control and supporting laboratory facilities. It includes state-of-the-art material handling and production technologies that increase manufacturing efficiency and optimize the quality and consistency of Ferro’s glaze and body stain product lines sold to the growing European tile market.

“We began producing and shipping color this week, a month ahead of schedule,” said Michael J. Murry, vice president, Inorganic Specialties. “We’re ramping up to reach annual production capacity of over 20,000 metric tons of color products.”

Julio Garcia, European business manager for Ferro Tile Coating Systems, said, “Ferro has produced color products in Castellon for 42 years. This major investment enables us to build on our position as a valued supplier and technical advisor to our customers. We are very excited by the opportunity to carry on Ferro’s long-standing tradition of excellence in serving our customers throughout Europe and the world.”

In addition to colors, other facilities at Ferro’s Castellon site produce a range of products used by leading ceramic tile manufacturers. Visit www.ferro.com for additional information.
