In today’s interconnected world, companies are no longer confined to their local markets; they have the opportunity to influence and contribute on a global scale.
Polyvision, a leading manufacturer of enameled steel known as CeramicSteel, is a prime example of this global-local synergy. We like to demonstrate how an international presence can have a profound and positive local impact with operations spanning regions such as EMEA, APAC, and the Americas.
Adapting products to local needs
Each region has unique architectural, interior, and collaborative design needs. We tailor our CeramicSteel products to fit diverse requirements and ensure their global presence is sensitive to local cultures and environments.
This can include custom designs for specific geographic areas or adapting products to suit different climatic conditions.

Supporting local economies
Our presence in various regions plays a significant role in boosting local economies. Establishing/supporting manufacturing facilities, offices, and supply chains creates job opportunities and stimulates economic activity. Moreover, by sourcing materials and services locally wherever possible, Polyvision contributes to the economic well-being of its communities.
