Riedhammer kilns for Ukrainian Slavutskiy Budfarfor

A company part of Sanitec Group makes key investment choice in Ukraine.

Slavutskiy Budfarfor is a joint venture between Sanitec and Ukrainian private investors, where Sanitec has a 51% shareholding. Sanitec is one of the leading companies in Europe in the sanitary ceramics industry with several well known brands. With the investment in Ukraine opportunities will be given to also further increase its share on the Eastern European market, an area that continues to show signs of strong dynamism in terms of growing domestic demand.

Slavutskiy Budfarfor has decided to boost the output capacity of its plant in Slavuta, a town located in the north-west of Ukraine. One of the important parts of the investment is an all-new tunnel kiln built by Riedhammer, a Sacmi Group company that is the world-leading designer, producer and marketer of ceramic tile and sanitaryware firing systems.

The kiln – a 147 metre long, 3.6 metre wide TWS model – was installed, tested and started up last February, and provides a daily output of some 4,200 pieces. The plant also includes a shuttle kiln, again supplied by Sacmi Riedhammer, a 9-car HWS model able to re-fire up to 1,100 pieces a day.

The investment will allow Slavutskiy Budfarfor to increase its presence in Ukrainian market, with further opportunities for expansion in the strategic “bridge zone” between the EU and the Russian market.
