CeramTec raises awareness of cancer at its locations worldwide with campaigns and awareness-raising measures.

In recent years, we at CeramTec have already supported the “Pink Ribbon Day” and drawn attention to the topic of breast cancer with colorful and creative campaigns. This year, for the first time, the concept will be extensively expanded – with the “Movember” (Moustache vs. November). The Movember is a global organization with its origins in Australia. Like Pink Ribbon in connection with breast cancer, its mission is to draw attention to typical “men's diseases” such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental illness, etc. and to focus on preventive measures.

Movember stands for…

  • the fight against prostate and testicular cancer
  • the prevention of suicide among men and
  • a sustainable influence on men’s health

Pink Ribbon stands for…

  • Precaution and education against breast
    cancer and
  • Support for those affected and their relatives

More than 5.6 million men worldwide live with prostate cancer.

More than one million breast cancer cases are diagnosed each year.

Young men between the ages of 15 and 40 have the highest risk of developing testicular cancer.

One in eight women will be confronted with breast cancer in their lifetime.

The older a man is, the more likely he is to be diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer and the leading cause of cancer death in women.

Grow A Mo,
Save A Bro


The older a man is, the more likely he is to be diagnosed with prostate cancer.

The crisis in men's health calls for bright minds and great solutions. But there is a smaller, hairier solution to the men's health crisis. A solution that you can grow yourself. It is under your nose.

Let this Movember grow a mo and you can do something about men dying too young – because your mo can also inspire donations and discussions and bring about real change.

The pink ribbon as a symbol


As an unmistakable symbol, the pink ribbon is intended to raise awareness about breast cancer. The ribbon stands for solidarity with all women affected by the disease and brings the importance of prevention into focus. CeramTec distributes the pink ribbons, flowers and information material to employees at all international locations in Europe, Asia and the USA to send a visible signal.

One action month – double precaution

For many years, October has been the month dedicated to prevention and education against breast cancer. This is followed in November by the Movember: During this time, women and men are sensitized to typical male diseases. This year's month of action begins in mid-October and ends on November 30. During this time, we would like to draw attention to both topics at our facilities as well as in public.

  • On Wednesday, October 28, CeramTec will be holding its big day of action. As in previous years, we are calling on all employees to take part in colorful, creative and positive activities – this year, of course, with the necessary distance. For this purpose, we will provide pink ribbons & black beards. For the first time the pictures of this action day can be uploaded directly via the CT Inside App and will be published on the homepage afterwards. Of course, there will be a special action dish in the canteens (Plochingen, Lauf, Marktredwitz) again – this year with pink & black elements. Let yourself be surprised.*
  • To ensure that the topic receives further attention, CeramTec is giving away 10 high-quality Bluetooth action boxes for the first time among all employees.
  • And last but not least, all men are invited to grow a mustache in November – as a sign of their solidarity and to draw more attention to the topic. Those who like can also take part in our video challenge: Each participant provides at the end of October an edgewise cell phone video during shaving (the whole beard must off) and sends this to The videos will then be used internally & externally for communication (e.g. via social media). In the course of November, numerous beautiful moustaches grow among the staff, followed by a large collage of all the moustache pictures of the employees at the end of November to round off the month of action.*

As in previous years, CeramTec is providing financial support to the German Cancer Research Center DKFZ, Pink Ribbon Germany and for the first time, the organizers of the Movember – to help fight cancer.
