Family Business:  Tradition or Superior Vision?

CoorsTek Employee Loads Kiln

At The CoorsTek Center for Advanced Materials, a research & development hub in Golden, Colo., an employee loads a kiln used to develop and manufacture high quality technical ceramics.

The predecessor of CoorsTek was founded in 1909 by John Herold, who moved his company—the Herold China and Pottery Co.—to Golden, Colo. Today CoorsTek manufactures engineered ceramics in more than 300 technical compositions, serving customers in the automotive, defense, health, oil and gas, semiconductor and other sectors.

The fifth generation of Coors leaders sits in the CEO chair—though that chair has been expanded to fit three CEOs: Michael, Jonathan and Timothy Coors.

CoorsTek’s idea of success is based less on being a member of the family and more on being a caretaker of the business.
