Since its founding in 1994, Makana Brick has continuously advanced the art of brick-making to make clay bricks that are eco-friendly, affordable and durable for specialty architectural, commercial and residential projects.
We have the formula that allows us to do this – environmentally friendly raw materials, a genuine passion for bricks and dedicated employees with an intense focus on creating an excellent customer experience. We sell an experience, not a stone. We assist architects, developers, contractors, businesses and homeowners with knowledge and insights gained over years. We help where we can and ease the way of doing business. You want to build? We make it happen!
Our bricks are made from the best quality kaolin in the local Grahamstown region and manufactured with modern manufacturing methods in our technologically advanced factory and tested in our state-of-the-art onsite laboratory. Our production process drives consistency, better yield, smoother production runs and produce less waste. Our solar plant has allowed us to become less dependent on the national electricity grid and we aim to become the most environmentally friendly brick manufacturer in the country. We decrease our carbon footprint by being situated close to the raw material and delivering to the market in close proximity to our factory.
