Complete plants for the ceramic industry

Expertise, experience and partnerships with major industrial concerns make us the ideal partner for designing, building and installing complete lines for the ceramic industry. We represent a single contact point for the introduction of a new plant and each phase is directly followed by ICF & Welko engineers and personnel to provide a complete turnkey service.

ICF & Welko is the upshot of the merger of two long-established Italian automation companies with over 50 years of experience in the ceramic plant industry: ICF Industrie Cibec, specialized in the preparation of ceramic bodies and Welko, specialized in the press, drying, firing, glazing and complete plants sector.

We have installed complete plants worldwide, supplying turnkey lines from raw materials to finished products ready to go on sale. We avail ourselves of leading manufacturers for line completion machinery. Our customer service provides prompt design assistance with lab and semi-industrial tests.
