Clay brick industry reopens
South African brick makers are ramping up production in a Covid-19 protected, safe and orderly manner, in good time for the startup of the construction industry. Although brick production can have long lead times, most manufacturers have stock in hand so place your orders quickly for the best prices.
Many local bricks are produced using clamp kilns so manufacturing is an outdoor activity where workers are able to easily distance. In quarrying environments, PPE gear, dust masks and dust control measures are just normal operating procedure. In the more technologically advanced factories, robotics and automation are common.
The sector produces more than 3.5 billion clay bricks per year, providing around 20 000 direct jobs and an additional 160 000 jobs in allied services. The Clay Brick Association represents almost 100 brick makers across southern Africa, as well as numerous industry suppliers and service providers.
