antsLAB (earlier known as Ants Ceramics) did not start in the proverbial "garage" but it was something close. The company started in a lab by two engineers under the mentorship of their professor. We have a dream, a vision to be a state of art advanced ceramics manufacturing company capable of making complex, customized ceramic components. We aim to be a pioneer in IP driven manufacturing and commercialization of ceramics and to create an eco system for research and development in material science.

It has been a challenging journey and we have come a long way from being in a lab to having our own manufacturing facility and office in Vasai, Mumbai. We currently supply to majority of research labs in both government and educational institutions in India and beginning to establish our presence in few other countries.
