The Technical Ceramics business of Morgan Advanced Materials has grown through a process of strategic acquisition and consolidation. It combines the resources and expertise of its constituent companies to offer a product range and technical capability whose breadth and depth is difficult to equal. The origins of this specialist business date back to 1964 when Steatite & Porcelain Products Limited was acquired from ICI. This company was started in 1929 in the UK, but the investment by Morgan Advanced Materials plc (then The Morgan Crucible Company plc) 35 years later marked the genesis of the modern-day Technical Ceramics business.
Three further acquisitions in the UK were followed by a major milestone in the early development of the division with the acquisition of Duramic Products in New Jersey in 1986. This heralded the start of the rapid expansion of our operations in the USA.
