Operation “Star Porcelain”: the KMG Group goes for Sacmi

Complete high-end tableware manufacturing plant started up in Bangladesh

One of the most modern plants in Bangladesh for the manufacture of high-end hard porcelain: now KMG (Khater Massaad Group) is in the process of perfecting it and has successfully started up the new Star Porcelain Pty plant near the Hobiganj district.

The complete line, made in collaboration with the Sacmi Group, spans from the body preparation department – which uses certified high quality raw materials – to the dry pressing station. Then there are the pressure casting solutions (traditional-mechanised or plastic moulding).

A key factor in the company’s investment choice was the range of high efficiency isostatic pressing solutions – with robotised finishing systems – with which Star Porcelain now makes most of its output. Completing the order is a robotised dip-glazing station, downstream from which there is a tunnel kiln for firing in a reducing atmosphere built by Riedhammer: this innovative kiln has specifically been designed for the tableware industry and equipped with fully automated control systems.

This first stage of the KMG Group investment plan will boost Star Porcelain’s output to 15 million pieces a year, with new tableware collections offering modern aesthetics from Europe’s top artists. Expectations for the future are running high, as KMG’s decision to set up the plant ready for the installation of decoration solutions for most of its output clearly shows.
