G. Benedikt Group

Tradition since 1882

At that time it all has started. The foundation stone of the porcelain factory has been laid in the town of Karlovy Vary. One of the currently largest porcelain factories in the Czech Republic focused mainly on the production of hotel porcelain.


As time went by, the porcelain factory found skilful colleagues - allies in Austria and Switzerland. Therefore today, with Lilien Austria and Suisse Langenthal, we create the “G. Benedikt Group”.

FIRST STEPS

G. Benedikt’s history has begun in 1882, when the Benedict brothers established a porcelain factory in Dvory, which was named "Gebrüder Benedikt" in honor of its founders.

A NEW DIRECTION

In 1968 the Princip collection has been born. A collection, which stood on the beginning of a new age of the porcelain factory of G. Benedikt - production of hotel porcelain. The Princip collection was developed according to the design of Mr. L. Švec and has been in the production up today.

A BIG CHANGE IN THE 1990s

After the Velvet Revolution G. Benedikt (at that time called Hotel Porcelain Karlovy Vary) found himself at a crossroads. In 1992 the porcelain factory became a member of the Swiss group Keramik Holding AG Laufen.

EXPANSION OF PRODUCTION

Five years later, there was another big step for the factory: G. Benedikt merged with other two world-famous porcelain factories - Lilien in Austria and Langenthal in Switzerland.

RETURN TO THE ROOTS

In 2002, G. Benedikt returns to Czech hands. The porcelain factory was bought by Polyflex and since then has been headed by Marek Stanzel. Since 2009 together with Pavel Janák.

STYLE LADY BY ESS KLASSE

Time goes on inexorably. And with it the new trends in gastronomy. In 2010, not only the chefs are dazzled by the porcelain beauty called Ess Klasse, designed for fine dining. It sets up a high bar, which G. Benedict is able to maintain – and even to overcome.

FIRST COLOR GLAZE

The Country Range collection proves that porcelain does not have to be just white and that almost nothing is impossible. For mastering the production of color glaze on an industrial benchmark, G. Benedikt can claim the first place in Europe.

GRANITE INPIRATION

The Granit collection, which shined at several world fairs, is the latest novelty of G. Benedikt. A collection indistinguishable from a real granite. As you can see, there is still much to discover. The story of G. Benedikt is far from over…
