Welcome to FRIATEC Innovations for more than 150 years The company was founded in 1863 in Mannheim, Germany, as a brickyard and succeeded in developing its first pathbreaking innovation, chemical stoneware, in 1888. Numerous new developments followed. Among other things, the company started in the mid of the past century processing plastics and combined modern and traditional materials when producing chemical devices and facilities. The following years were characterised by the expansion in the core business and the opening up of more and more new business segments.
