Their German headquarters sets new technological standards, continuously investing in research and development. In 2009 a new fast firing kiln with the world’s most modern firing technology was commissioned, giving Schonwald a flexibility that was previously not thought possible. Schonwald has been able to ramp up overall annual production capacity beyond 45 million pieces / 13,000 tons of porcelain. Energy and fuel consumption have been significantly reduced – environmental and cost-saving factors that give the brand a competitive edge.
Porcelain and the environment need to always exist hand in hand. Schonwald products are manufactured using only natural raw materials and their environmental balance is outstanding. The greatest challenge remains the high thermal energy required to fire ceramics. Schonwald have cleverly managed to reduce energy consumption by over one-third in the past two decades. CO2 emissions have been significantly decreased thanks to cutting edge, fast-firing technology and the use of light, high-tech kiln furniture. Since 1990, the only pollutant of note in the production process – fluoride (in gaseous form in waste gas) – has been consistently filtered out.
With regard to “sustainable housekeeping”, the company recycles completely, 100%, all raw materials and intermediate products, it operates a water treatment plant, it has initiated various energy and water conservation projects, and has reduced the total consumption of raw materials. As proof that all environmental and energy management activities are a permanent feature, the company holds ISO EN DIN 14001 and 50001 certification.
Porcelain is not only for the appetising presentation of food: It also has the job of lending a personal touch that leaves the guest with a positive impression of their host. This is best achieved when your dinnerware can display a personal signature or a customised decor that harmonises with the overall concept. That is why Schonwald experts allow themselves plenty of time time to consult with every single customer, in-depth. If you prefer a custom decor, specialists will work with you to develop a design in line with your vision. We are also happy to visit our customers to capture the ambience of the given establishment and to ensure that it is reflected in our designs. You decide yourself on how discreet or lavish, how affordable or how costly the end result need be.
