THE FURNACE TODAY

A PASSION FOR MORE THAN 70 YEARS

THE FURNACE TODAY

A “PASSION” THAT HAS LASTED SINCE 1895 AND FROM A “QUADREL”
(A LOCAL TRANSLATION OF A BRICK)
MADE WITH FOSDONDO’S CLAY.

Both extruded (drilled) and soft-paste (hand-type brick – solid) face bricks are produced at the Fosdondo plant.
The facilities were almost totally renovated from 1999 until 2007.
Machines that were not completely replaced were still upgraded by partial modifications.
Overall, the plant equipment, which is constantly maintained, can therefore be considered state-of-the-art and capable of meeting the various market demands (sizes and colors).

The full production capacity is about 140,000 tons/year of fired material, including 72,500 tons of extruded material (40,000,000 pieces/year) and 67,500 tons of hand-type brick (25,000,000 pieces/year).
