Price Review 2020
It is that time of year when we have to review our prices in relation to supplier increases, every effort is made to absorb these increases where possible but from Monday 3rd February 2020 a 3% price increase will apply to all our products

Clay & Casting Slip prices are valid until 31st December 2020, subject to any major cost increases outside of our control.  However, we recommend you check our raw material prices prior to placing orders as these can be subject to change.

2020 Brochure
The new price list will be featured in our NEW 2020 brochure, which will be released in the next week. So please keep checking for the downloadable version. You can also order your own hard copy which will be sent in the post in the next few weeks. Click here to pre-order your new brochure.
