China Clay falls to an all time low in Fowey

Saturday 11th April 2009


Imerys have announced an 11-day shut-down further affecting shipments from the harbour at Fowey.

Further economic fears hit Clay Country this week as Imerys announced it is to shutdown all plants due to a fall in demand.

Only last month Imerys refused to comment on rumours production rates and demand for clay were falling.
One employee, who asked not to be named, claimed demand had dropped to an all-time low with just eight boats leaving Fowey harbour in February, compared to the usual 27 each month.
