Established in 1922 at the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, SCT prides itself on its rich history of technical ceramics and ceramic-to-metal brazing.

For the past 100 years we have evolved our business from manufacturing porcelain parts to designing feedthroughs for active implantable medical devices and aerospace engines. This evolution is credited to our commitment to anticipating market trends and translating them into process and product innovations which respond to our client’s rigorous demands.
