Welcome to the premium class of firing equipment

With over 40 years, KITTEC is one of the most experienced kiln construction companies.

OUR SUCCESS STORY

Part of our tradition is one of Europe‘s first top-loaders. The technology and equipment of our products have always been designed for many years of use in workshop and industrial operation.

We use high-quality materials and components for our kilns, which come from wellknown manufacturers. Our specialists install everything in our modern factory with the utmost of precision. We carefully calculate our kilns, assemble them and they are then inspected by our company – for this purpose, the final check by the inspectors is marked on the seal of approval with their name.

The company Kittel was the first manufacturer to present the ceramic toploader CB 60 A. Innovation and consistent continued development have been the hallmark of KITTEC ever since.

With many years of experience, we have further optimised our kilns and repeatedly set the standards for the construction of the kiln. In 1979, we introduced the first top-loader, which was a milestone in the construction of kilns.

Today our claim on perfection defines the details.

High-quality materials and components from renowned suppliers are mounted with precision.
