Sale to private individuals and professionals

Founded in 1879, the brickwork factory makes products in terracotta and mudbrick for the building industry (20% of revenues) and the decoration segment (80%).

The company exploits local quarries and makes the bricks in an entirely traditional manner; firing is carried out in a coal oven. Manual production represents 80% of activity. The company has rare know-how in terms of preparing the earth and in decorative productions, shared with only twenty companies in France. The company is exceptional due to an innovative process whereby mud bricks are assembled using high thermal inertia and also due to its development of unique machines.

This know-how can only be acquired through in-house practice and research. Several of the company’s employees have over 40 years’ experience.

The clientele consists mostly of private customers (80%), some companies (15%) and institutions (5%). The company sells its products in the boutique adjacent to the workshop and via a network of material sellers; it also works to order for special parts. It takes part in trade shows (Toulouse, Albi, Narbonne). It is currently developing new mudbrick products. It has a Website.
