Ceramics

Industry Overview:
 

This industry is far more complicated than many laypeople realize; it’s not just your grandma’s ceramics anymore. Technical advances mean ceramics now are used not only in traditional domestic, industrial and building products, but also in armored fighting vehicles, biomedical implants and jet turbine engine blades.

In the United States, domestic manufacturers must compete with aggressive price-cutting from overseas firms, so personnel must understand speed, cost controls, safety concerns and state-of-the-art processing equipment to develop advanced products.

Hands-on experience, computer knowledge and technical insights help engineering develop ceramic products and applications. The positions require expertise in mechanical, chemical and electrical issues and other concerns in producing and marketing ceramics, which offer great advantages over many other products. Ropella is immersed in the ceramics industry, with years of experience identifying and recruiting top performers.

Common Applications:
 
  • Crystalline / non-crystalline
  • Metallurgy
  • Glazing
  • Machining

I’d like to thank you and your team for the support received in the recent job searches.  Your efforts to systematically identify candidates, pre-screen them and follow up throughout the interview process was impeccable, leading to 2 key hires in less than a month.  Most impressive was your “Checkster” report and the quick turnaround provided on these key documents.  Finally, your understanding and appreciation for the types of candidates that matched best to the positions was very much appreciated.
