CERACLAD

About Us

Our mission is to deliver superior cladding solutions that are attractive and affordable and create a healthy living environment.

We will develop and deliver products and solutions of the highest quality that are environmentally friendly and meet the aesthetic and performance needs of the design community.

KMEW USA - Our Heritage

KMEW was created as a subsidiary joint venture between two Japanese industry titans, Panasonic and Kubota Corporations. The CERACLAD Rainscreen Fiber Cement Siding System has a proven track record of performance nearing 40 years in Japan. Extensive research and technological advancement led to the development of the company's proprietary Photocatalytic Ceramic Coating which provides superior color retention and self-cleaning performance which eliminate costly maintenance.

With our humble beginnings in North America in 2002, we began our journey providing attractive, high performance siding systems designed for sustainable buildings and a healthy living environment. The first project in West Seattle introduced our cladding solutions to the market and still stands today as a testament to the superior quality and performance of the CERACLAD Rainscreen Siding Systems.

KMEW History of Technological Innovation

Our History

With our humble beginnings in North America in 2002, we began our journey providing attractive, high performance cladding systems designed for better living with a multifamily renovation in West Seattle. This first project introduced our cladding solution to the market and still stands today as a testament to the superior quality and performance of the CERACLAD™ Rain Screen Cladding System.

With a focus on the Pacific Northwest over the next 15 years, the CERACLAD™ brand grew into the market leading option for factory finished high performance fiber cement cladding. In April 2017, KMEW USA Inc. was formed and the CERACLAD™ cladding solution was introduced to the full North American market.
