Introducing Porcelanosa

31.01.19

Today, the Porcelanosa Group is a major reference on Spanish and international markets, operating in accordance with firmly-consolidated values such as innovation and quality, and especially the trust it has placed in its extensive human capital, made up of almost 5,000 skilled professionals, and its ongoing concern for its stakeholders.

With more than 40 years’ experience, the Porcelanosa Group is one of the most prestigious ceramics manufacturers in the world, offering kitchen and bathroom furniture in over 970 stores across 150 countries. Throughout, consumers can see on-going developments in the innovation and design of all its products.

Production diversification has played a key role in the growth of a business group that started off with the production of a single product: ceramic tiles. Today, the Group’s eight companies offer a wide product range that includes kitchen and bathroom equipment as well as state-of-the-art building solutions for contemporary architecture and interior design.

Porcelanosa - Sustainability & the Environment

An analysis of new products - from the design stage through to their end function – is fundamental in helping to plan initiatives that can reduce potential environmental impacts.

At Porcelanosa, systematic steps are taken to reduce the products’ potential for generating pollution. For instance:

  • The tile glazes do not contain any heavy metals like lead or cadmium. This means that their vitreous surface is totally inert. Porcelanosa tiles have heavy metal emission values far below the established limit for food-grade ceramic tiles.
  • The products’ packaging is made of over 70% recycled material and the weight of the packaging in relation to the weight of the associated product is very low.
  • Porcelanosa uses high-performance raw materials from quarries close to its Vila-real facilities in the manufacture of some products, thus minimising the environmental impact of their delivery to the factory.
  • Porcelanosa’s ceramic tiles are made of inorganic minerals, with no post-fired treatments. Hence they have no volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. They are also fired at temperatures of between 1150 and 1200°C for 60-minute cycles and so the end product has no hazardous compound emissions.
  • All Porcelanosa’s tiles contain different percentages of recycled material. All rejects from the production process, identified before and after firing, are re-used as raw materials to make the tile body. Recycled water is used in the grinding process.
