Formerly called Maret SA, a family company established in Le Locle in 1907, it relocated to Bôle in 1952. The size of the factory was increased over time. Maret SA also expanded its operations into the manufacturing and machining of components from ultra-hard materials. In 2005, the company changed its name and became Ceramaret SA, reflecting its focus on advanced ceramics. Maillard Frères SA a company specialized in the drilling, boring, and turning of synthetic rubies, sapphires, and other advanced ceramics, joined the Ceramaret SA group in 2009.This entity has been fully integrated into Ceramaret SA in 2016.
After having been controlled by the Maret family for three generations, the company became part of the industrial group MK Holding SA from 1991 to 2013. MK Holding was founded by Mr. Martin E. Knechtli. Through his strong personal commitment he gave the company its actual footprint in the field of advanced technical ceramics. Under his leadership Ceramaret could further innovate and grow to its current size, while doubling the number of its employees.
Since the 1st of January 2014, Ceramaret SA has been part of the KOWEMA Beteiligungs AG group in Baar (ZG).
