Matclad Expands Brick Slip Factory Operation

Monday, August 10, 2015

Matclad Ltd have invested in a new manufacturing installation (larger kilns and specialist slip making machinery) to provide larger volumes of purpose made brick slips to the UK and European markets.

This investment sees Matclad Ltd become the largest UK manufacturer and supplier of purpose made brick slips. Additional specialist kilning and clay processing machinery enables us to further enhance our offering and range whilst maintaining our competitive leading edge in terms of cost and speed of turn around.

Like a small brick works this allows us to take real clay and turn it into perfectly fired brick slips. Have a look at how it's made below.

From raw clay...                                                        To finished product.
