CERAMAT is currently managed by Joël BERTRAND.
Mr. Bertrand represents the 5th generation passed on from father to son, working in the ceramic business since 1850.
Indeed, his grandfather Pierre-Henri BERTRAND (originally from Châtelet-Bouffioulx) settles in Hanzinne around 1850 to manufacture clay tiles. Apparently, his forefather descends from a big family which has been working in the regional ceramic business for ages, as the name BERTRAND has been popping up quite often in the local professional registers since the 16th century.
In order to develop a good quality product, the new production site was built in 1987 in the industrial zone of Mettet, only 10 km from the original site.
