Their iconic lifestyle products are available in over 100 countries and are designed to create a positive, lasting impact on their customer’s quality of life.
Six representatives from four Fiskars companies came to visit us, including:

- Niko Piirainen (Managing Director, Royal Copenhagen (Thailand))
- Henrik Toft (Factory Manager, Royal Copenhagen (Denmark))
- Richard Davison (Factory Manager, Wedgwood)
- Stefan Pitterling (Factory Manager, PT Doulton)
- Riswandoko Jatidjo Rusmin (Engineering Manager, PT Doulton)
The Fiskars team were treated to a personal tour of our brand new factory in Baodi, Tianjin by Ian Wright (Operations Director) and Catherine Lv (IPS Commercial Coordinator Asia). The Baodi factory is a custom-built facility which will provide us with a significantly higher production capacity and greater room for future expansion. It comes with a training room, a fully stocked R&D laboratory, and everything required to push our product ranges and manufacturing processes further than ever before.
The Fiskars team thanked IPS for their visit and commented that our Baodi factory “gives an amazing opportunity to produce a high quality refractory product efficiently with significant capacity and space available for future growth”.
We’re incredibly proud of our new factory and were delighted to present it to Fiskars Group, showcasing the best that IPS Ceramics has to offer. To get in contact and discuss how we could work together to support you and your processes, please see our “Contact Us” page.
