In this issue, we’re shining a spotlight on the continually evolving technical achievements of the “advanced” sectors of our industry with our sixth annual CI Top 14 list of the leading global manufacturers of advanced ceramics, glasses and refractories. The companies included in our exclusive ranking are increasingly developing and producing high-tech products and technologies for the vital industries of today, such as aerospace, automotive, electronics, defense, and biomedical/dental.
Read the article to learn how these industry leaders have fared over the past year. Details for each company include (when available) annual sales and sales trends, numbers of employees and facilities, and R&D spending, plus recent company activities. All information was reviewed and verified, when possible. In cases where specific and verifiable information was not readily available/provided, some companies unfortunately had to be left out.
To compile our CI Top 14 ranking, we evaluated information supplied by company contacts, along with additional details from company websites, annual reports, and press releases. I’d like to take a moment to thank the companies that provided details for the ranking this year. We couldn’t do it without you!
