Edwin Wang, President
The idea of the American Dream has been the essence of the nation for centuries. It is a way of life for many, while a way to aspire for others. The promise of a fulfilling and prosperous life, living the American dream becomes a reality only with hard work and making and taking opportunities on the way. With this ideology, comes the emergence of CeramSource, which initially started as a small textile company in 1999 in Pennsylvania, but has at present grown and is expanding under the able leadership of the company’s president Edwin Wang, alongside a skilled and dedicated team. Since its humble beginnings, the company gradually evolved into doing business with other products like blankets, boards, and insulation products associated with the heating industry. Within a few years, CeramSource set footing in New Jersey where it expanded its warehouse to nearly 36,000 sq. ft., by the year 2012. The company is one of the leading providers of refractories, ceramic fiber insulation (RCF and Non-RCF), graphite products, and fabrication services. “We have successfully pivoted from a purely textile company to refractory brick supplying company that services steel-making industry, at the dawn of our 20th anniversary,” states Howard Yang, Operations Manager at CeramSource.
The heating industry has witnessed a dynamic transition over the years, which brought about the utilization of ceramic fiber. Most organizations are at present, more conscious about health regulations and protecting their workers. This need brought about the demand for ceramic fiber and silica fiber into the insulation industry. CeramSource has successfully stayed abreast with the transformations and the evolving needs of the heat insulation industry while staying compliant to the safety regulations and norms. The company’s services are not just tailor-made to the needs of its clients and vendors but also resolve the major challenges they face.

Its warehouse facilities in Texas, Ohio, California, and New Jersey enable swift transportation of materials to clients as soon as they require. This saves a lot of time for clients, especially who are project-based. “We not only want to be known as service providers but also as problem-solvers for our clients. To deal with industrial heat, our clients’ requirements are always our incentives,” adds Yang.
The company comes with a myriad of products in the heating industry, to provide top-notch services to refinery industries and steel mills. CeramSource provides insulating firebricks, high alumina brick, magnesia chrome brick, hard ceramics, fiberglass, cement, ceramic fiber blanket, graphite, sheets, foils, stopper rods and nozzles. Their main product lines are Ceramic fiber blanket, paper, board and textiles among other offerings. The company also fabricates existing inventory to ceramic fiber strips and modules for the thermal processing industry.
