Company profile

SCHUPP® Ceramics is an established specialist for high-temperature technology. Since 1996, our family-owned company has been producing and selling economic while also high-quality metallic-ceramic solutions for sintering, firing and melting, as well as heat treatments. In combustion or electrically operated industrial and laboratory furnaces: Our products, components and systems work safely at temperatures of 560°C to 1800°C. From tried-and-tested standard products for high-precision firing process control to individual special productions for electrical heating or thermal insulation, we supply standardised and customised solutions to customers from around the world from industrial applications and production as well as research. Flexibility and targeted approaches are our foundations for meeting our customers' demands. Our international team of more than 41 employees is currently working for 900 clients around the world with head, hand and heart. Trust, honesty and the will to make a difference are our principles for establishing successful partnerships and designing them sustainably.
