About us

PPC ČAB a.s.is a technology leader and manufacturer of state-of-the-art electrical porcelain insulators for overhead transmission lines, substations and electrostatic precipitator applications.

Company profile

PPC Insulators is a technology leader and manufacturer of state-of-the-art electrical porcelain insulators for overhead transmission lines, substations and electrostatic precipitator applications.

Traditional porcelain insulators originated in the late 19th century. These were further developed in-house by PPC via its isostatic production technology, allowing the production of high-quality products with efficient designs, tightest tolerances and shorter lead times for applications up to 1200kV AC and 1100kV DC.

Our production capacity presents 6500t of porcelain per year.

Since May 1993, Elektrokeramik Sonneberg has been certified according to DIN ISO 9001 and since 2015 an energy management system (EnMS) in accordance with ISO 50001has been maintained.

PPC Čab was established in 1955 as the First Slovak Porcelain Factory.

In 1993 it successfully passed the ISO 9002 certification process and in 1994 the ISO 14001 certification.

In 2001 the “Lean Six Sigma“

the program was implemented, including high investments in education. Main parts of this program were projects significantly contributed to the reduction of the scrap volume and its production.
