Sabina from Irish Dresden

We (Irish Dresden, Ireland) have been working with Peter Cassidy of Newcastle Kilns International for at least 20 years. We met him during his time with Kilns and Furnaces. Due to decline in our business we lost contact . 2 years ago we were experienced a lot of problems with our kilns and were lucky to be able contact Peter. In no time he visited us in the South of Ireland, found the problems and rectified these. As Peter says he is only a phone call away and if necessary he will be on site asap. Peter is very pleasant to work with, nothing is too much hassle and he will only leave the premises when the problem is solved. We have only very good experiences with Peter and can highly recommend him.

Kevin Green from The Edge Ceramics

I have dealt with Newcastle Kilns for some 5 years now and happened by chance. What luck! Newcastle Kilns have looked after me ever since. The Edge Ceramics is only a small company producing high quality lamp bases to a major international design company. Also, products to the most prestigious cooker company in the UK and Worldwide. The reliability and consistency of the kiln firing is paramount to me and Newcastle Kilns fits the bill perfectly in every dept. Although my company is small, Peter Cassidy, the owner of Newcastle Kilns, endeavours to look after large and small companies exceptionally well, going the extra mile. Newcastle Kilns built me 2 new kilns and we were delighted from the word go. I cannot recommend this company highly enough.

Dave West from Emma Bridgewater

‘Newcastle International Kilns have been contracted to do a number of projects for us over the past 2 years. They initially submitted a price and a project plan to refurbish one of our electric kilns where they worked closely with us to achieve what we required within a specific budget. The project was completed ahead of schedule and within budget. The products and workmanship were of a very high standard and the after sales service was excellent. Any problems were dealt with swiftly usually solved within a 24 hour period, minimising adverse effects to production. They offer a 24 hour call out and their knowledge and expertise in the ceramic firing sector is very extensive. We continue to use NIK and have since contracted them to complete some further projects into the future. I would not hesitate to recommend their services, a reliable trustworthy company at reasonable prices.’  

Pam Ridge from Staffordshire Heritage

‘We have been a customer for 12 years, of NI Kilns (Pete Cassidy) to maintain both electric and gas kilns. From changing elements, bricklaying, repair brickwork or modules, as well as setting up gas burners. They offer excellent support and they are available on request. We were that confident in them that we employed them to build our 2 new electric (glost) kilns, here at Staffordshire Heritage. We would highly recommend them to anyone in this industry. They are an integral part of our team.’  

Mark Cumberlidge from Furlong Mills

‘Newcastle International Kilns have provided our business with an excellent service over the last 5 years. We have received quick turnarounds for kiln repairs such as element re-wiring or brick re-lining and have provided cost effective solutions to our problems. I would be happy to recommend them.’
