Cerámica Alicantina was founded in 1887 in San Vicent del Raspeig ( Alicante) , a traditional area for the manufacturing of roof tiles, bricks and other ceramic products. The quality of their products established Ceramica Alicantina as the leader in the industry. Later on, the brand was bought by Mr. Francisco Ramón Borja and kept upon today.
Today, Cerámica Alicantina is focusing on their new journey; specialising in the manufacture of interlocking roof tiles.
