No longer known just for its porcelain, Noritake has greatly expanded its capabilities.

By Chris Kelsch

In 1904 in Nagoya, Japan, Noritake was founded as a Western-style tableware manufacturer, with the aim of exporting the finest-quality products to the rest of the world. And while it excelled at producing quality ceramics, throughout its history Noritake has amassed a wealth of various technologies that have since been adopted for use in other sectors. With these technologies, Noritake has expanded into four major business groups: tabletop, engineering, ceramic and materials and industrial products.
