QSIL acquires materials specialist Barat Ceramics in Auma
Just in time for the new year, the materials specialist QSIL has taken the next step on its growth path: With the acquisition of the technical ceramics expert Barat Ceramics, the QSIL Group will now exceed the sales mark of EUR 100 million and significantly enlarge its special materials portfolio. Barat Ceramics looks back on a similar past like QSIL: Carved out from a company formerly owned by the state, over the past 25 years Barat has turned into a well excepted provider for special technical ceramics products and solutions.
Until 2021, QSIL plans to invest 5 million Euros in the Barat production site and expects international sales to be strengthened by the deployment of its worldwide branches and sales offices.
