Langkloof Bricks - Home
Langkloof Bricks made history by introducing the first new
energy efficient Vertical Shaft Brick Kiln (VSBK) in Africa.
This clay brick factory, owned by the Blake family in Jeffreys
Bay is on record for pioneering one of the most technologically
advanced VSBK kilns in the world today.
This is as a result of the successful implementation of a
Technology Transfer programme initiated by the Swiss Agency
for Development and Co-operation (SDC), Swisscontact (Swiss
Foundation for Technical Co-operation) and SKAT (Swiss Resource
Centre and Consultancies for Development).
Langkloof Bricks is an established Clay Brick manufacturer
situated between Jeffrey's Bay and Humansdorp.
The company has been committed to the supply of quality clay
brick products to the area since 1969. Langkloof Bricks was
founded by the late Mr George Blake and Mrs Una Blake.
The day-to-day operations are managed by her two sons, Nico
(Executive Director) and Pieter Blake (Production Director).
Langkloof Bricks became a member
of the Clay Brick Association of South Africa in 1978,
joined Cofesa as a member in 1990 and is currently also
a member of the Kouga Business Forum in Jeffrey's Bay.
Langkloof Bricks also fully supports the principles
of the BBBEE initiative of the government and is currently
rated at Procurement recognition Level 2.
