Progress and growth from strong roots
In 1893, Johann Peter Söndgen founded the company which still bears his name today and which has spent the last 125 years developing all the attributes that make up a global player. Over the last century, Soendgen Keramik has grown from a small local craft business to an international concern.
This commitment to progress has accompanied, inspired and motivated SK right from the start. Always at the cutting edge, the company is now associated more than ever before with high-quality, trend-conscious ceramics “made in Germany” for both indoors and outdoors. Every year, the SK design team undertakes regular scouting missions and creates new trends that reflect current market developments.
Trust and dedication – the keys to success
Quality and customer orientation are the most important factors in the long-term success of any company. Thanks to its achievements in recent years and its trustful cooperation with customers and partners, Soendgen Keramik can look back on its 125-year history with pride. “Together with our team, we are looking forward, focusing on the future and placing the needs of our customers and end-users at the forefront of our activities,” says Björn Hansen, Managing Director and great-grandson of the company founder, who has set his sights on continuing the company’s successful course over the next few years by persisting with this policy of customer orientation.
New showroom for the anniversary year
The highlight of the anniversary year for Soendgen Keramik will be the opening of a new showroom in Grafschaft-Gelsdorf in summer 2018. Current trends, the entire product range and new ideas for the point of sale will be put on display in an area covering more than 600 square meters. This spacious, inspiring showroom will therefore offer optimum long-term support for bricks-and-mortar retailers. Along with display areas for indoor and outdoor ceramics, a customizable creative center will provide the opportunity to develop new concepts and shelf modules cooperatively on site. This is SK’s way of sparking new ideas for attractive PoS concepts – the key to strong sales and an important way to stand out from the competition. The new showroom will offer the opportunity to hold sales talks in an inspiring environment, increase customer satisfaction and consequently promote the long-term success of Soendgen Keramik.
