Winter Housekeeping

Our factory and showroom were closed over the holiday but we were still busy! There was a great team here cleaning house during the vacation. Working with clay is a dusty, dirty job so it's important to keep the production area clean.

The glazing and loading areas got a total make over. The kilns were all covered in tarps and all the peeling paint was scraped off the cool wooden beam ceiling. We added some new lights too.

          Everything got a fresh coat of paint

and all the floors were scrubbed clean!

The pug mills in our extruding department got a cleaning too.

The pug mill churns up over a million pounds of clay for us every year. It deserved a little attention! Briefly shiny and clean, it got new blades and is back to work already, full of clay and making tile.

We had a great productive holiday and are looking forward to working with you in 2014.  Hope you all had a great holiday too!
