The Ukrainian porcelain-making tradition originated in Volynia at the end of the 18th century. By the middle of the 19th century, small porcelain factories emerged with the entry of large multinational porcelain companies. Information about them is usually extremely scarce.

Poland’s close proximity to the Ukraine has made its history no less complicated than Russia’s. In the 18th century, many wealthy Poles owned property in Volynia. By the 19th century Poles were still the main customers of Ukrainian porcelain and faience factories, and their products were stored in warehouses in Moscow, Warsaw and other cities and sold in stores there. Thus traces of Ukrainian manufacture are abundant in Polish museums and private collections.

The ratio of locally produced sanitary ware to imported products in the Ukrainian sanitary ware market is about 6:4. The two leading Ukrainian sanitary ware companies are both foreign-owned. In addition, a number of them are concentrated in Slavuta, in the north of Khmelnytskyi region. Industry is a key element of the region’s growth, with more than 100 companies operating in the town.

JSC “Slavuta plant “Budfarfor” – one of the largest factories in Eastern Europe, which earlier focused on porcelain and later on the production of sanitary ware.

LLC “Aqua-Rodos” – a leading manufacturer of furniture in Ukraine.

Among them, the Slavuta factory “Budfarfor” must be mentioned in connection with the Ukrainian sanitary ceramics industry. The factory was established in 1909. The first batch of sanitary porcelain was produced in 1910.

In 1922, the factory was nationalized, and in 1946, the so-called pouring method was introduced for the first time in the Soviet Union, which doubled the production. In the 1960s, the factory underwent an intensive technical renovation; glazing technology was introduced. In 1975, the plant was fully converted to porcelain products and became a leading producer of sanitary ceramics in the USSR, with an annual output of 1.7 million pieces. From 1944 to 1956 it was part of the Ministry of Industrial Building Materials of the USSR.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s, it became one of the few factories in Ukraine to remain in operation, and later came under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Building Materials of Ukraine.

In October 2006, an agreement was signed with the Finnish company Sanitec Group Corporation to set up a joint venture for further modernization of the enterprise, improvement of product quality, design and expansion. According to analysts, the share of Slavuta “Budfarfor” in the Ukrainian market in 2007 was 30%.

According to the data, Geberit entered the Ukrainian market in the second half of 2004. In 2015, Geberit completed the acquisition of 99% of the shares of Sanitec Group. Geberit has been able to localize its development by taking over Sanitec’s Ukrainian assets. In 2017, Geberit monopolized the main flushing systems market in Ukraine. In 2019, Geberit invested in a large modern production site and logistics center near the former state-owned sanitary ware plant. Currently, it is one of the largest manufacturers of sanitary ware in Ukraine.

According to an interview with Oleksiy Rakov, General Director of Geberit Trading LLC, published in the Ukrainian press in 2020, it can be learned that Geberit currently has two factories in Ukraine, with products at the low-end, mid-range and high-end. One of the sanitary ceramics factory has an annual capacity of about 3.5 million pieces. It has a tunnel kiln of 147 meters in Sacmi.

According to the news of February 7, the old Budfarfor factory has been privatized. The auction will be held on March 4. It includes 38 property complexes with a total area of 82,929.1 square meters.

In addition, another large bathroom company in the Ukrainian market is Cersanit Invest LLC, which is also a Polish holding company, specializing in tiles and sanitary ware, located in the city of Kielce in southeastern Ukraine. The company’s tile factory in the new city of Volensky has an annual capacity of about 12 million square meters. It is worth noting that the largest shareholder of the company is Polish Michał Sołowow, a resident of Kielce, Ukraine.
