ISN Celebrates 21st Anniversary

26th November, 2015

The Board are pleased to announce that ISN have recently celebrated our 21st Anniversary as an independent company. Prior to August 1994 we were part of the multinational company Cookson Group and were essentially a small R&D company looking at developing silicon nitride based ceramics and composites. In 1994 Cookson Group decided to divest its interest in advanced ceramics and in August of that year we had a management buyout and became International Syalons (Newcastle) limited.

We were convinced of the excellent potential of the materials we had been developing but had the challenge of changing the company from one focusing on R&D to one focusing on manufacturing and building a broad customer base. There have been many challenges over the last 21 years but we are now established as the leading producer of advanced silicon nitride based Syalon ceramics in the UK and sell our materials to customers all around the world. In addition we have now expanded our portfolio of materials and also offer alumina, zirconia and silicon carbide ceramics.

We look forward to providing our customers with high quality advanced ceramics for the next 21 years!
