CeraMetal Director: Good business climate and Government’s support encouraged us to invest in Bitola


The support from the Government and the local self-government played a huge role in our decision to invest in Bitola. The well-prepared and trained people that want to work with us, their communication skills and fluency in English and Greek were crucial in the decision to develop our business in this country, Director of Greek company CeraMetal, Maria Papadopoulos, said.

“CeraMetal is a top producer of bi-metalic plates, which are used as machine parts, or parts of construction machinery. This product is a bi-metallic plate, consisting of a mild steel base with a highly alloyed wear resistant cladding. It is produced by a customized automatic hardfacing process which results in a harder, tougher and more wear resistant surface than any existing process can achieve. The low carbon steel base plate allows the product to be welded, bolted or studded to existing structures, whilst the surface cladding provides an excellent wear resistance barrier to the most severe conditions and environments. The superiority of CeraMetal Wear Plate is the direct result of strict scientific and metallurgical control of all the production processes involved”, Papadopoulos said.

The company, she noted, has a big network of clients and their products are mostly sold in Europe, mainly in Germany-40 percent, and in Canada, Chile, Brazil, Turkey, Russia, Japan, Taiwan and many other countries. The company has already obtained construction land in the industrial zone Zabeni-Bitola.
