Porcelain enamel is an ancient material - the first pieces of porcelain enamel found buried in Mycenae are 3,500 years old. The company has a rich tradition, with its roots dating back to the year 1550. That is when the original pan forge was founded in Ybbsitz in the Lower Austrian Mostviertel region. The manufacture of high-quality porcelain enamel kitchenware began here in 1922. Today, Julian Riess, Friedrich Riess and Susanne Riess, the ninth generation of the family, are at the helm of the company.
The Riess porcelain enamel factory is the only porcelain cookware company in Austria and produces also porcelain enamel shields and industrial components. The traditional brand is now represented and popular in many countries in Europe, as well as in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Korea and Japan.
