In 1936, Hans Lingl developed and patented an innovative process to engobe roof tiles. Two years later, he converted a small bicycle shop in Bavaria into a production workshop and began to bring his idea to life.
75 years on, the company he founded has become the largest independent, privately-run supplier of equipment and services to the heavy clay industry in the world with over 500 employees and locations on every continent.
In 1964 Hans Lingl (UK) Ltd was established to improve the accessibility of Lingl products and services for customers in the important UK market. 50 years later, Lingl UK is recognised as a Centre of Excellence in the design, manufacture and servicing of many key products in the Lingl portfolio.
Focused on innovation, bespoke projects and energy-saving processes backed by exemplary customer service and full health and safety compliance, Lingl UK remains at the forefront of the UK heavy clay industry.
