Clinker manufacture operational: 1906-1908

Approximate total clinker production: 8,000 tonnes

Raw materials: could be Aberthaw stone?

Ownership: Atlas Portland Cement Co. Ltd

The plant was set up to make paving slabs - opened 6/1906 and wound up 11/1913. The only evidence that it made Portland cement is in its name, and that Davis listed it, with a capacity of 160 T/week. It is not to be found in directories. It is likely that it spent a couple of years trying to make its own cement, before out-sourcing it.

Please contact me with any relevant information or corrections.

No rotary kilns were installed.
