History of BCE Special Ceramics GmbH

BCE Special Ceramics was founded by Hermann Bertsch in 1986. This Mannheim-based company has remained an owner-led, independent enterprise. Our company experienced steady growth. This lead to a relocation to a business complex in the Mannheim/Friedrichsfeld area.

Periodic expansions, the most recent in 2005, enabled us to add a department for medical technology development and production.
