ECTS met the Mexican Brick Sector in Monterrey


On October 8, 2018 a delegation of 12 ECTS member companies held a Technology Symposium in the Northern Mexican City of Monterrey.

The region arround Monterrey is where most modern brick plants in Mexico are located. However, all across the country exist thousands of small brick and roof tile makers. Mr. Andrés Aranda from the Jalisco State Government gave an impressive presentation about number and conditions of small Mexican brick producers. New environmental legislation is forcing them to reduce drastically emissions.

Exhaustive discussions with more than 80 brick makers from all over the country helped to understand the Mexican market.

On October 9 and 10 the delegation visited the two biggest brick plants of Monterrey, Santa Clara and Ladrillera Mecanizada.
