Production

Fincibec Group has three production facilities equipped with the latest technologies to guarantee an overall annual potential output of over 10 million square metres. Through the brands Monocibec, Century and Naxos, it produces technical and decorative stoneware wall and floor tiles in a variety of formats, thicknesses and finishes to meet the needs of the most diverse uses.

In total, Fincibec Group has four raw material grinding mills and two atomizers for producing the ceramic mixture that supplies 15 pressing, drying and enamelling lines and six furnaces. All the lines are equipped with digital decoration and use the Digital Jet System (DJS) developed by the company. Finally, four cutting, squaring and lapping lines and 13 sorting and palletizing lines prepare the products for market. Logistics are then entrusted to two dedicated platforms, located in Sassuolo and Solignano.

Attention to the eco-sustainability of the entire industrial production process is one of the cardinal principles of Fincibec, which continually strives to use raw materials with low environmental impact and to limit the consumption of natural resources such as water and natural gas. In particular, electricity is self-produced via a cogeneration system in order to dramatically reduce emissions into the atmosphere.

 

HISTORY

Fincibec Group’s history begins in Sassuolo, Italy, in the fifties, with Cibec, a mechanical workshop in the street of Via Verrazzano that was one of the most appreciated constructers of machinery in the ceramic industry of the time. Cibec introduced technologies such as atomizers, which revolutionized the very way of making ceramics.

Cibec’s own ceramic production began in the sixties, when the company, among the first in Sassuolo, brought to market its floor tiles in fine porcelain stoneware.

But it was in the seventies, with the introduction of light single-fired frost-proof ceramics, or glazed stoneware, that the success attained by the company convinced its owners to leave behind its mechanical department to focus solely on the production of floor and wall tiling.

In 1976, Cibec became Monocibec, and in 1981, the new brand facilities of Casiglie di Sassuolo were inaugurated to meet increasing production demands.

Expansion continued in the nineties with the acquisition of two plants and the creation of new brands, Naxos, in the Solignano plant, to specialize in the production of wall tiles, and Century, in the Roteglia plant, to specialize in the production of technical porcelain stoneware.

The birth of Fincibec Group, in 1997, was the keystone of a growth that continues today, driven by the passion for innovation and research that has marked six decades of the company’s history.
