Estarreja plant start-up
There is an old proverb for the rainy weather that usually happens this time of the year in Portugal that goes ‘April, a thousand waters’. For MESA Ceramics in 2018 it was ‘April, a thousand milestones’. The new offices and laboratory were delivered to our team that relocated from the satellite locations where we have been working for almost a year now, at the same time we finished installing and started up the bulk of the industrial machinery including ignition and temperature buildup for the main kiln. Our first fulfillment plan for May was sent to Production and the team is now busy adjusting the kiln temperature curve to make the glazes look perfect as well as fine tuning the remaining machinery as we prepare for our first audits and dinnerware production start.
