IBIDEN Porzellanfabrik Frauenthal GmbH

IBIDEN Porzellanfabrik Frauenthal GmbH is based in Frauental, close to Deutschlandsberg and a 30 minute drive from the Styrian capital, Graz. Today’s company dates back to a porcelain factory established in 1921. Porzellanfabrik Frauenthal currently employs 440 people at its Frauental site.

Following the sale of its insulator business in 2001, Porzellanfabrik Frauenthal was split into three companies: Porzellanfabrik Frauenthal GmbH, PPC Insulators Austria GmbH (now part of the Seves Group) and Ceram Liegenschaftsverwaltungs GmbH. Consequently, the Frauental site is now home to three companies employing a total of approximately 600 people.

Frauenthal or Frauental?

When IBIDEN Porzellanfabrik Frauenthal was first established, the town’s name still had an “h” in it. That changed with the spelling reform of 1960, when "Frauenthal" became "Frauental". However, the company and the nearby stately home both retained the previous spelling.
