The history of Keramika has originated in 1936 with the construction of a new
factory at a location where a manual-work facility used to exist in late 1920's.
In 1988 Keramika gains independence by becoming the first privately owned
co-operative enterprise in
the city and one of the first ones in the country.
Today Keramika is the only brick factory within city limits. More
than half-a-century's worth of experience in ceramic brick-making by the method
of plastic shaping, as well as the factory's modern technological basis, allow
it to produce nearly 60 models of high-quality bricks and ceramics of various
sizes and shades. Keramika is the industry's leader in terms of
production effectiveness and it currently dominates the North-Western region's
market of construction materials.
In 1998 the company has begun the serial production of high-
effectiveness brick materials. These bricks have unique physical characteristicssuch as their heat protectiveness, twice higher than usual, which allows to
the construction of housing with walls only 51 cm thick in St. Petersburg
weather conditions. Keramika's bricks have been patented in 1998 by the Russian
Federation Patent and Trademark Committee.
Keramika became the first enterprise in Russia to receive a compliance
certificate for the maximal possible term, by passing a voluntary brick
certification examination in 1996. Keramika's successes in the areas of product
quality and services have been marked by national and international awards.
In 1998 Keramika has been included in "Russia's top 1,000 enterprises"
almanach and became the only enterprise in the construction industry to receive
the Russian Government's diploma "For significant quality achievements".
Under Ya.E. Shenderovich's leadership, the company's goal is to output
products meeting today's world quality standards.
