Visit to British Ceramic Tile - BCT 2015

British Ceramic Tile is the largest manufacturer of tiles in the UK. There is a full article on the WPA visit to BCT in WPA NL 133 page 5, by Jeanne Gimblett. Although some WPA members visited the site a few years ago, the factory has undergone a multi million pound investment which has helped to establish a larger factory equipped with the most modern technology, so it is definitely worth another look.

Their manufacturing technology now includes HD (inkjet) and glass tiles. BCT have design studios in Devon and Yorkshire and work with design firms such as Laura Ashley, Hemingway Design and Studio Conran amongst others.

As this visit ends at 12.30pm, why not make the day by having lunch at The Riverside Mill, home of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, just five minutes up the road.
