Rüdiger Grau takes charge at Norddeutsche Steingut

March 2018

Norddeutsche Steingut, part of the German ceramic giant Steuler Fliesen Group, has appointed Rüdiger Grau to its board of directors.

After graduating in geology with a specialisation in ceramic materials, Grau gained extensive experience in the ceramic industry in Germany, initially as Managing Director of Creaton and then as CEO of Erlus. In 2014 he joined the Steuler Fliesen Group as Managing Director of Kerateam.

Rüdiger Grau takes over from Karl-Heinz Fabel, who is retiring after 13 years and leaving the Board of Directors of Norddeutsche Steingut.  During these years Fabel has played a major role in driving the German company’s development, especially in terms of innovation and investments. His achievements include introduction of the first inkjet printer for tile decoration in Germany as well as the first Continua+ line for large size ceramic tile production, which was installed at Nordceram.

Grau took over the helm of Norddeutsche Steingut, alongside Stefan Zeidler, at the beginning of 2018: the company’s 150th anniversary year.
