Malsch Brickworks back in production

At the beginning of Sep­  tember, the brick presses at Wienerberger’s Malsch plant in Baden-Württemberg started up again. Production of all Poroton clay block sizes will be successively resumed. The entire Malsch range will be available again by early November at the latest.
Preceding this was the rebuilding of the facility for raw materials preparation. Wienerberger has invested in new machines and handling equipment to meet today’s energy standards. These measures became necessary following a fire in January that caused extensive damage at the preparation facility jointly operated by Creaton and Wienerberger. The production outage at the plant since the beginning of February has been offset with replacement supplies from other plants. For the supply of the South-western German building market with Wienerberger products, this production site plays a key role.
