History

A Tradition that Spans Over 125 Years

Porzellanfabrik Hermsdorf was founded in 1890. From1892 onwards, we have been producing technical ceramics at this site.

An important highlight in the company history was the construction of the Delta petticoat insulator in 1897, which in those days was considered a revolutionary concept for building high-voltage insulators.

The 1930s witnessed the construction of the long-rod insulator and the introduction of steatite as ceramic material for insulation. The diverse properties and applications of technical ceramics have resulted, over the years, in the discovery of new material and product groups.

In the year 2000, the company stopped producing high-voltage insulators and started focussing on the current product range. Today, Porzellanfabrik Hermsdorf GmbH Technical Ceramics is a medium-sized enterprise with over 100 employees.
