From handmade clay tiles to "bicottura" tiles
< / br> In the 1940s, Maximiano Aparici began producing handmade bizcocho tiles with a red paste in a small oven in the Spanish town of Alcora, known for its important pottery tradition since the 16th century. These tiles were made from the same local red clay that was used and used today and then sold to tiling studios that apply color and pattern to an unglazed surface.
After two decades of DIY tile making in In his furnace, Maximiano Aparici and his wife founded Ceramicas Aparici in 1961. The first Ceramicas Aparici factory was his proud achievement, it was a small factory, but it gave him a chance to start producing tiles, incl. a final glazing process that he could not do with his bicottura or double-firing technique before.
More than fifty years and three generations later, Ceramicas Aparici has grown into a company that exports to over 140 countries around the world and runs various production facilities in the city of Alcora and its immediate vicinity. However, the essence and values of our company remain those inherited from Maximiano Aparici.

The high-quality ceramics and porcelain of this family-run business are the impetus for the development and trends of the entire industry and are present all over the world.

We use a waterjet system to create custom floor designs, which usually contain borders and central elements, combining various collections. The water jet system is based on a tool capable of cutting porcelain tiles with a high speed, high pressure water jet or a mixture of water and abrasives. The process is essentially the same as water erosion in nature, but accelerated and concentrated by orders of magnitude. Water cutters are able to make quite complex cuts in porcelain tiles that cannot be obtained in any other way.
The digital printing system is the process of decorating ceramic elements using an inkjet application that enables the creation of high-quality reproduction of photos (including pictures, drawings, texts, logos, etc.) while maintaining the high technical parameters of our ceramic products. Thanks to our special decoration system, we can therefore offer elements with greater realism, as they can achieve higher print resolutions. Another advantage of this system is the ecological aspect, because the use of only four colors (CMYK) significantly reduces the amount of materials used in production, and thus reduces the degradation of these materials and their impact on the environment.
