Boston Valley Terra Cotta was established by the Krouse family in 1981 following the purchase of Boston Valley Pottery, a company that had been in existence since 1889. Originally a brick manufacturing facility and later a clay pot manufacturer, Boston Valley Pottery was converted to an architectural terra cotta facility by the Krouses. Utilizing both superior terra cotta engineering knowledge and sculpting talent, Boston Valley Terra Cotta has become one of the leading manufacturers of architectural terra cotta in the country.
Boston Valley commenced operations with the restoration of the Guaranty Building, a Louis Sullivan building in Buffalo, New York. Since that time, the company has been awarded contracts for some of the most notable buildings around the country. We are awarded contracts based not only on the competitive cost of our terra cotta products but because of our ability to meet and exceed expectations with regard to service and quality. To date, over 1500 contracts have been carried out to completion. Our facility has grown into a state-of-the-art operation with 170,000 square feet of work space and over 150 employees, operating two shifts per day. Our management team has over 29 years of experience in design engineering, drafting, model and mold making, clay body and glaze development, and customer service.
Over the last 29 years, we have invested over $16 million in capital improvements. This has given us a competitive edge by assuring that we produce architectural terra cotta materials of the highest quality with on time delivery.
