Chris Jones is lead engineer for Bricking Solutions, a world leader in kiln refractory installation solutions. Bricking Solutions manufactured the industry’s first bricking machine in 1966 to give refractory installers a safer, more efficient alternative to manual installation methods. From that time the company has believed that machines should do the heavy work rather than the people and customer feedback should drive product development. Bricking Solutions manufactures a wide variety of equipment for the cement, foundry and steel industries, including bricking machines, conveyors, pallet transfer systems, suspended platforms, ramps and safety cages.
