Harold Ipsen founded Ipsen Ceramics in 1952 to produce specialized refractory ceramic tubes for use in steel heat-treating furnaces. Starting as a department of Ipsen Lab in Rockford, Illinois, Ipsen Ceramics was eventually incorporated as a separate company in January 1957 and moved to a new facility in Pecatonica, Illinois – where it is still located today.
Since 1952, Ipsen Ceramics has grown to become a recognized world leader in the design, development and manufacturing of technical ceramics and remains dedicated to this position. Ipsen Ceramics is also a leader in performing custom toll firing with temperature firing capabilities up to 3,200 °F (1,760 °C).
