Esmalglass - Itaca Group

In 1978, with the aim of marketing and producing frits, glazes and ceramic colours Esmalglass is established in Vila-real (Castellón, Spain). One year later, after having designed and built its first melting kiln, Esmalglass starts its industrial and commercial activity offering its customers a service based on technical assistance, design and guarantee of future which nobody had proposed so far. Following this service vocation it is developed a standard of international implantation in the main markets of the ceramics and so the first headquarters is established in Italy in 1979.

Beginning from 1982 the great effort in R+D+i fructifies and the proper technologies developed are implicitly welcomed by the ceramic industry, specially the glazes by dry method and for single firing. Esmalglass continues growing and opens new headquarters in the United Kingdom, Italy, Portugal and Brazil.

Correspondingly Itaca starts its activity in 1989 in La Pobla Tornesa (Castellón, Spain) dedicated to the manufacturing and trading of ceramic colours, basing its philosophy in a continuous compromise with the customers and supporting its strategy on the innovation of the production process, design, an efficient technical service and a firm support to R+D+i.

In 1999, Esmalglass and Itaca joined and started Esmalglass-Itaca Group.

Nowadays we have grown to position ourselves in the most important ceramic markets worldwide. We are more than 1.300 people worldwide working together with a same aim: our customers’ satisfaction.
