We have enjoyed uninterrupted manufacture and trading for over 109 years. Adapting to ever changing market requirements, we have continually satisfied the needs of discerning architects seeking exciting building opportunities.

From the elaborate designs of the Victorian era, through the Art Deco period of the 1920s and ’30s to the present day revival of terra cotta for restoration and new build projects, Shaws products have mixed wonderfully with other materials and matured beautifully with age.

We boast the specialist skills to design, match and produce the highest quality of terra cotta possible.

Operating from our 24 acre site in the heart of England, Shaws has invested heavily in the production capacity to complement these skills and develop one of the world’s largest terracotta manufacturing plants.

Since 1892, we’ve supplied terracotta for some of the finest buildings around the world. Recent projects include The Wrigley Building, Chicago, The Commonwealth of Kentucky State Capitol Building, to the elaborate designs of The De Barones shopping development in the Netherlands, amongst many.
