MLC Ceramic Machinery, based just north of Alcobaça in the Oeste region of Portugal, reports continuing healthy demand for its range of ceramic production machinery.

In particular, the company’s export business has been strongly boosted by its international marketing efforts and complements a long-standing and notably strong market presence in its home market. Several projects have been completed, or are nearing completion, in the UK, France, Norway, Brazil, Turkey and Mexico. In the UK, where the major tableware groups continue to invest in new equipment, MLC Ceramic Machinery has been particularly active. The first half of the year saw new contracts gained at Churchill China, Denby Pottery, Steelite International, and Portmeirion Group. Added to these equipment contracts are successes with some of Europe’s porcelain makers, including Figgjo, Pillivuyt, and Porcelaines de La Fabrique.

In Portugal itself, MLC Ceramic Machinery has continued to work with fine stoneware manufacturer Grestel, including the new Ecogres factory, and is the main equipment supplier for this turnkey-build factory. Ecogres ceramic tableware is made from 90% recycled materials, with a new clay body, and embodies an eco-friendly approach to manufacture.

MLC Ceramic Machinery designs, manufactures, installs, and services all major pieces of production machinery required by ceramic tableware, dinnerware, hotelware, general pottery and decorative art pottery companies. The range comprises preparation, forming, drying, glazing, finishing and ware storage and transfer systems.
