The Isle of Wight has been an array of festivals, regattas and carnivals, keeping the tourist and locals busy.
However, although the Isle of Wight is well known for its Tourism, the manufacturing industry based on the Island covers many fields with various areas of expertise with international recognition. Here at Ceramic Substrates we pride ourselves on supporting the local economy and protecting our environment, at the same time proving to be a leader in Precision Engineered and Industrial Ceramics worldwide.
Ceramic Substrates always have Health and Safety and the Environment at the forefront throughout the Factory and this month was no exception.
