History

The history of the FINCIBEC GROUP began in the 1950s in Sassuolo, Italy, where the production of porcelain ceramic tiles began in the first factory on Via Magellano, which is now home to FINCIBEC Campus. It made a state-of-the-art material that clearly distinguished itself from the traditional ceramic production of the time, which was oriented toward double-fired enameled tile.

The introduction of automatic decoration and atomization machines in the FINCIBEC production cycle, a technology that was unknown at the time and now used universally, is now considered an essential element for the production of quality ceramics.

In the beginning of the 1970s, the production of light-coloured single-fired flooring was introduced (glazed ceramic) at the Magellano plant; this innovation would prove to revolutionise the entire Italian and international ceramic industry within a few years.

In 1981 it inaugurated the Sassuolo Casiglie plant, which was established to keep up with the unstoppable growth in the demand for single-fired flooring.

The expansion continued in the 1990s with the entry into operation of the Solignano (Mo) plant, specialised in the production of white wall tiles and the Roteglia (Re) plant, dedicated to the production of fine porcelain.

To meet the design challenges of contemporary architecture, the FINCIBEC GROUP created two new brands, FIRE FINCIBEC and OVER FINCIBEC, which specialise in the creation of large ceramic slabs. Through two impressive sizes of 160 × 320 cm and 120 × 260 cm, they offer original and versatile solutions that are technologically advanced and aesthetically sophisticated, with the guarantee of quality that the research and development of FINCIBEC has offered for over 60 years.
