In 2013, King Klinker built the most sophisticated thin brick plant in the world with Siemens controls and the latest German machinery. Polish engineers also added their own twist to the high level of sophistication by creating trade secret machines for making some of the best collections of thin brick in the world.

 

 

strong roots

The King Klinker story is one of freedom of enterprise and a strong Polish heart determined not just to survive, but to be the best. The founders established its roots as a ceramic and glazing company named, Klinkier Przysucha, during a time when the Soviets had control of Poland post WWII. Then in 1987, after the fall of the Soviet Iron Curtain as President Ronald Reagan challenged Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall”, Klinkier Przysucha was positioned for private sale. As a free country, it took many years for Poland to sell off all the state-owned companies. However, in 2004, private investors purchased the struggling factory and made plans to form a massive thin brick plant.
