The Italian ceramic and refractory manufacturers’ group Assopiastrelle has recently expanded its membership and changed its name to Confindustria Ceramica – the Italian Association of Ceramics. The group said the move is in keeping with changes seen in the Italian ceramics sector. Members now include the Italian manufacturers of ceramic sanitary ware, ceramic tableware, decorative ceramics, technical ceramics and clay pipes.

While the new name will be reflected in all of Assopiastrelle’s contracts and other business relationships, its address will remain the same. Assopiastrelle’s new website is www.confindustriaceramica.itand new contact email
