On Thursday 18th July 2019 International Syalons (Newcastle) Ltd. celebrates it’s first anniversary as part of the Calsitherm Group.
It has been an exciting first year as International Syalons has been integrated into the Calsitherm Group and spent much time learning about it’s new sister companies under the SILCA brand in South Africa, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, and SRS Amsterdam as well the Group’s international partners in Brazil and USA.
The acquisition one year ago has rejuvenated and built on the success of the previous owners by investing in additional equipment and growing the manufacturing workforce., and further plans are well underway to expand both capacity and capabilities at the North Tyneside site over the coming 18 months.
General Manager, Alain Ennen, expressed his thanks and gratitude and said: “It has been a pleasure to welcome Syalons into the Group, especially to meet and work alongside such highly a motivated and professional team. I have particularly enjoyed discovering new aspects of the fantastic world of high quality advanced ceramics – this first year has gone by in a flash!” when he addressed the workforce at a buffet lunch to celebrate the occasion; thoughts which have been echoed by Calsitherm Group CEO Dr.-Ing. Tobias Hölscher.
