The Company goes back in 1947. The family that runs the company, a descendant of the famous painter Klimt came from Germany and arrived in Barcelona in the late nineteenth century. In the thirties began its activity dedicated to the decoration of the most precious porcelain. "Our business was the decoration of porcelain, made entirely by hand", says the father of the family. "It was a totally artisan job".
As production was acquiring a large volume, came a moment that even hiring all decorators available, could not get supply all demand. The solution was to automate the production with ceramic decal. It was a pioneering idea.
We created our designs, we manufactured the colors with metal oxides, even did the paper to be printed. We were the leaders in Europe, recalls the production manager, Gabriel Jordà.
The technique used and the family tradition of art and design in the industry stalled immediately began to demand that our decals until the sale was such that we decided to convert the activity of decorators to manufacturers of decals. We were in 1947.
Currently, we manufacture ceramic and organic decals that decorate the most exclusive porcelain. In addition, our technology, our facilities and equipment as well as our expertise in pigments, along with our team of designers, we can design, produce and market the line KLIMT.
