Since 1890 Smorlesi has been manufacturing quality bricks exclusively using the beautiful clay of the River Potenza valley. In our catalogue there are more than 3.000 different products to make your buildings even more beautiful.
The kiln tradition took root in Montecassiano, a city in the area of Macerata, in ancient times.
The geologic features of the ground, rich of the best clay, have favoured the establishment of factories in this area starting from the Roman time.
The SMORLESI kiln was created in 1890, as result of a tradition that has always been associated with prestigious products. The first factory was built in the Monteferro area and 20 years later, during a period of remarkable growth, the production was moved to the present plant in Vallecascia.
The first continuous kilns were replaced by the more technologically advanced tunnel type furnaces, the sizing of which is carefully analysed to obtain homogenous results, thus guaranteeing quality and a long working life. When the economic development of the Fifties and Sixties led to a significant market expansion, Smorlesi was ready. Thanks to its far-sighted industrial policy, the Company has already adapted the plants to the new technologies. It has been one of the first companies to produce tiles for indoor and outdoor use and offer a wide range of solutions in the field of sight curtain walls, roofing and flooring. Since 1990 the best quality has been guaranteed by the automation of all clay pre-processing, drying, cooking, stacking and carriage handling production processes, with the only exception of the cooked material selection, that is carried out by skilled operators, and a special section of manual products, that has been expanded even more.
