Schönwald has been developing and manufacturing high quality professional porcelain in SCHÖNWALD for over 130 years. Restauranteurs and hoteliers in more than one hundred countries around the world have come to depend on the professional solutions and the reliability of SCHÖNWALD quality made in Germany.
SCHÖNWALD’s clear focus on professional porcelain allows us to develop an astonishingly diverse range of shapes and styles with more than 40 collections and over 1,700 individual items.
SCHÖNWALD porcelain is manufactured in Germany, with over 1100 highly qualified employees in one of the world’s most modern and highly automated production facilities. The new fast-firing kiln’s improved performance contributes to the production of 45 million pieces / 13,000 tons of porcelain per year. This technology has enabled SCHÖNWALD to successfully reduce its overall energy use by a third over the past 15 years, despite the extremely high firing temperature of over 1,400 ºC. CO2 emissions have been significantly reduced too, thanks to the very latest rapid firing technology and the use of light-weight kiln furniture made of high-tech ceramics. SCHÖNWALD is also committed to the environment. In 2012, it became the first company in the industry worldwide to gain ISO 50001 certification, and is also certified to ISO 14001 in recognition of their exemplary environmental management system.
