High quality clay bricks and pavers from the company’s kilns have been helping to build Botswana since 1992. Drawn from fine local clays, they are moulded and fired around the clock, then trucked and railed to construction sites all over the country.
Burnt clay bricks have been used for centuries and remain a natural and popular construction choice. Their earthy good looks, rich variety of colours and textures, strength, durability, versatility and resistance to fire make them an economical maintenance-free building option.
Lobatse Clay Works, Botswana’s leading manufacturer, produces a wide range of face bricks, standard and special shaped bricks and pavers, to meet any building requirement.
The company’s products are built into homes, offices, factories, schools, hospitals and public buildings across the country.
Skilled hands, trained eyes and experience are moulded into every brick. The up-to-date manufacturing process is closely monitored and quality controlled to ensure first-rate products that conform fully to the demanding specifications of the Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS 28) and the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS 227).
Each batch of bricks emerging from the kiln is subjected to quality sampling in the company’s laboratory, including testing for porosity and strength.
Wholly citizen owned through the Botswana Development Corporation, Lobatse Clay Works is a vibrant, profitable enterprise that is making its full contribution to the economy, and remains firmly committed to its mission of ‘Building Botswana - Brick by Brick’.
The company is very much part of the Lobatse community and is committed to continuing to be a progressive employer and a supportive and generous neighbour in the area in which it operates.
