Although world renowned for its award winning porcelain collections, inside the Fichtelgebirge, the picturesque ring of granite mountains that separates Eastern Upper Franconia from the rest of Bavaria, Arzberg Porzellan GmbH dedicates itself to its history, people, and environment.
At a time when competition and outsourcing are depleting manufacturing in the resource-rich area, Arzberg works to maintain and expand its operations in order to continue the tradition of quality begun in 1887.
The factory in Schirnding manufactures the complete range of products, whether cast, rolled, or pressed, and guarantees superior quality control over the full scale of operations. Embracing technology alongside tradition, Arzberg’s production processes incorporate the best available practices from computerized kilns and robotics to individual handwork and artistry.
Arzberg’s investment in its roots extends from its employees to the environment. Industrial hygiene and personal safety rank as priorities to guarantee a healthy workplace. Dust collection and emissions control systems protect both interior and exterior atmospheric conditions while the easily recycled raw material generates limited solid waste. Post-production, carton packaging and labeling utilize post-consumer recycled paper products.
From the factory floor to the retailer’s shelves, Arzberg’s signature oval symbolizes its continuous commitment to quality and community.
