About Us

Ceramica Inc. located in Indianapolis, Indiana was launched in 1988. It came about as a result of a project Dick Light, chairman and founder of Ceramica, who at the time owned a brick distributorship, was working on. They were supplying the face brick to a new hospital in the area. About half way through the project the hospital administrators decided they wanted sell engraved name brick to grateful patients and veteran employees to be placed in the lobby. An order of 900 inscribed brick was placed that took the brick manufacturer 18 weeks to complete after several orders for re-makes. After the last brick was placed Dick said “There has to be a better way.”. From there Ceramica was born.
Other products, such as address stones early on, followed. We have increased our product offerings to address tiles, address boulders, signage, granite memorials, garden stones, pet memorials and specialty award items.
In 2005 we relocated to our present location at 6695 East 34th Street.  Through this move we were able to increase our stock yard and production areas immensely. We also added two components that allow us to operate more efficiently; a blast room that permits us to engrave signs up to 11 feet in length and a bridge saw giving us the capability to cut our own stone to size and shape.  Through all of this we have positioned ourselves to increase production in a more efficient and timely manner.
We look forward to exceeding your engraving needs.
