Ceramic City - Furlong Mills LTD

Spode -China Hall

FURLONG MILLS LTD was established in 1842 and is owned by Dudson Churchill and Portmeirion . Continuous investment by the shareholder companies has seen ambitious plans for expansion. In 2016 a fully computer controlled sliphouse was constructed and is now used to create bespoke ceramic bodies for the industry.    

Furlong realised the project ‘in house’ and now has a state-of –the –art facility which allows infinite modifications to the various ceramic body formulations produced . This is an example of a long established business adapting and thriving by harnessing local skills and new technologies to support the industry.
