Roca Group, a world leader in the design, production and marketing of products for the bathroom space, invests in the world's first electric tunnel kiln for sanitary ceramics. In an effort to decarbonise its traditionally energy- and carbon-intensive production, the company has taken this decisive step towards the electrification of its production processes at its Laufen plant in Gmunden, Austria, thanks to the state-of-the-art technology of Keramischer OFENBAU, a world technological leader in the manufacture of ceramic kilns.
