About Us

Maryland Ceramic & Steatite Company, Inc. is a natural outgrowth of over eighty years’ experience in the ceramic industry. MC&S remains family owned and operated for more than ninety years.

Maryland Lava Company, our sister company, began operations in 1926. Experience and knowledge in refractories led to the production of industrial and technical ceramic products, and the formation of Maryland Ceramic & Steatite in 1955. Our compositions include steatite and cordierite formed by extruding, pressing and machining. MC&S has became one of the leading ceramic suppliers in the country due to our unique formulations, fast service and delivery and an interest and desire to provide a product to fill a customer need, no matter how large, small or unusual.
With our tool and die shop on-site we can do the design and engineering in short order. MC&S houses a complete tool and die making facility, expertly staffed, with our Isopules Type EDM equipment enabling us to machine complex tools and dies. We have the ability to develop new tooling to specifically suit your requirements.
MC&S strives to maintain a modern and innovative production environment that enables customers, employees and owners alike to participate in and benefit from the process of progressive improvements in ceramic technology and automated manufacturing efficiencies. The continuously updated plant is a manufacturing center that MC&S designed, built and completely equipped. Faster production and shipment of our products is made possible through the extremely skillful operation of MC&S’s facility.
Our quality control staff will ensure that your products are manufactured true to print. MC&S provides a wide variety of testing in plant. Inspections are performed before, during and after production, thus assuring that all customer requirements are met or exceeded. Our goal is to help customers find the best possible solution to their business challenges. We pursue this goal by listening to our customers and serving as their technological partner.  MC&S can provide cost effective solutions so that you can produce higher quality products. As a customer, you can be assured that your concepts, drawings, and processes are kept in strict confidence and strict control at all times.
We would be happy to quote you on what is necessary to design, or redesign, and supply you with the ceramic products you need. We go all out to deliver fast, reducing your down time and assuring that your production schedule will be met, because you, our customers, are so important to us.
