Originally located in Eygelshoven, the brickworks was established in the mid-1960s by the local mine Julia, Laura & Vereeniging. For the past 50 years, the former brickworks has produced, among other things, facing bricks and interior wall bricks. Production ceased in 2009.

After years of stagnation, an overhaul of the factory started a few years ago. While retaining its nostalgic values, the brickworks has been completely converted into a factory that makes facing bricks from waste streams: the circular brick. During this quarter, the brickworks will be put back into operation with an experienced permanent core expanded by a dynamic team of enthusiastic employees.

This year, work is (still) in day shift. The intention is to work in a two-shift system from next year.
