Starck Ceramics will join Kyocera and begin operations in spring 2019, subject to regulatory approval.
“While in recent years Kyocera has been making investments to increase production capacity of fine ceramic components in Japan and the U.S., the company currently does not have facilities to manufacture fine ceramic components in Europe. By using manufacturing assets gained in the H.C.
