HISTORY & SYNERGY

The city of Desvres, from which the name of our company originated, owes its influence to the porcelain and earthenware production. The first earthenware art factory was established in the city in 1764. The Fourmaintraux factory, led by a dynasty of ceramists, acquired a national fame by replicating and interpreting hand-painted traditional decors.


Building on this family know-how, one of the family’s brothers introduced in 1863 the creation of earthenware tiles, to his art factory. The DESVRES company was officially born.


More than 150 years of existence and keeping the same guideline: producing quality tiles in an ever changing and more and more demanding environment.


DESVRES keeps on innovating, on moving forward and competing. DESVRES creates, surprises and has developed a strategy which has allowed to reach new heights. The company has broadly invested in all its production line whilst carefully keeping optimum quality products. New trends are released from the R&D department: tiles combining modernity and tradition. A certification lab provides drastic controls, to ensure the respect of norms requirements.


DESVRES is recognized as a lead played on the ceramics market, working in true confidence and partnership with its customers, in France and abroad.


In 2017 Koramic acquired GROUPE CERABATI SA and created GROUPE KORACER, who became the French leader in ceramic tiles production, combining the 3 brands DESVRES, CERABATI and ALFACARO.


GROUPE KORACER was awarded the ORIGIN FRANCE GUARANTEE label, which attests its factories’ commitment to protect the industrial know-how and support local employment. Moreover, sustainable development actions, such as producing from natural raw materials, are part of of its “high environmental quality” policy.
