Hi-Tech Tiles from Poland

Polish company Valdi Ceramica has opened a new facility producing floor and wall ceramic tiles. Located in Stąporków, Świętokrzyskie province south of Warsaw, this is Europe’smost modern facility of its kind.

Located in the Starachowice Special Economic Zone, the factory, which officially opened in May, cost zl.150 million to build. It will produce around 5 million square meters of ceramic tiles a year and by the end of 2011 it will employ 180 people.

The idea to build a state-of-the-art ceramics production facility in Poland came from Waldemar Dzionek, the president and owner of Valdi Ceramica Sp. z o.o., who has worked in the ceramics business since the late 1980s. “Not only have I accomplished my business goal, but I have also made a dream come true,” said Dzionek. “A dream to produce ceramic tiles in Poland of the same quality as products from the global leaders in ceramic design and technology such as Italy and Spain.”

The project is highly innovative, as shown by the fact that it was granted almost zl.41.5 million in EU funds designated for investment in innovation. Advanced technology at the new facility includes the world’s most modern Continua line used to produce porcelain tiles of up to 120 by 120 centimeters in size. The Continua technology has so far only been used at three facilities around the world. It was developed by the SACMI company in Italy, a well-known producer of machines for the ceramic industry.

The Valdi Ceramica facility in Stąporków can produce frost-proof wall and floor tiles for both indoor and outdoor use in all kinds of structures from housing to public buildings.
