Algoa Brick the biggest plaster brick (NFP) production facility in the Eastern Cape, manufacturing a combined annual capacity of 45 Million brick equivalents from our Swartkops, Port Elizabeth production facility.
Although its roots reach back to 1945, the company originated in its current guise in 2002 and since then, has gone from strength to strength.
Algoa Brick manufactures a full range of quality clay bricks, and has supplied to the Nelson Mandela Bay and Eastern Cape region for nearly 80 years. There are two production plants on site – Plant 2 is exactly double the capacity of Plant 1.
Our clay brick has been successfully used in residential and commercial construction projects throughout the Eastern Cape, where quality, consistency, durability and versatility are critical to the success of the building.
Our clay masonry bricks are available in a wide selection of surface textures, shapes and natural hues. They can be used as stand alone structural elements, in multi-story building or as an attractive cladding material, or filler between structural elements. Natural aesthetics also make them a popular choice for face brick facades or for external features such as perimeter walling, which when combined with other materials like wrought iron railings create a spectacular effect.
Manufactured to last
Our state-of-the-art brick making process ensures that our clay brick products are stronger and more durable than ever. As manufacturers of a high performance walling material and members of the Clay Brick Association, Algoa Brick has a responsibility to ensure continuity of supply in order for architects, specifiers and builders to design, detail and build in clay masonry with absolute confidence.
Co-operative distribution for local manufacturers
In addition to its own production, which focuses on plaster bricks (bricks that require plastering once built into a wall), the company also sells a large range of facing bricks sourced from top-quality manufacturers in the Eastern Cape and further afield.
