The company Arno Witgert has been mining clays since 1820 and is thus the oldest clay mining operation in the Westerwald area of Germany. In recent decades the trend has been to process quarried clays into ceramic bodies. These days Witgert supplies some 150,000 tonnes of ceramic raw materials annually to all parts of the World. Of course the German market constitutes the largest sector, but exports have nonetheless grown to a sizeable 40%. Although the most important export countries are in Western Europe, ever increasing numbers of customers are in Eastern Europe and North Africa, together with the Middle and Far East. Witgert supplies all types of clay-user, ranging from the roof-tile factory down to the individual hobby-maker, from porcelain-producer to landscape gardener.
