ABOUT BOSTON VALLEY TERRA COTTA
Boston Valley Terra Cotta is a global leader in the architectural terra cotta industry, serving the restoration, renovation, and new construction markets. The company was established by the Krouse family following the purchase of Boston Valley Pottery in 1981. The original factory produced bricks and clay pots prior to the change in ownership, at which point it was converted into the terra cotta manufacturing facility it is today.
By thoughtfully combining advanced technology with traditional craftsmanship, Boston Valley contributes to the successful preservation of some of the most architecturally significant buildings in the world, as well as the construction of iconic new-build structures.
Boston Valley has produced ceramic façade solutions for both new and old terra cotta buildings around the globe, such as Louis Sullivan’s historic Guaranty Building in Buffalo, NY; KPF’s new supertall skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan – One Vanderbilt, built in 2021; and the restoration of Battersea Power Station in London, England.
Boston Valley’s ceramic TerraClad® rainscreen and sunscreen systems can provide benefits above and beyond those offered by conventional masonry cavity wall systems. In addition to its inherent durability and ease of maintenance, our TerraClad® system incorporates ship-lapped open joints that shield the structural wall from the elements, while ventilating the airspace to minimize mold and mildew growth.
With various track systems to choose from, we can select an option that provides the greatest ease of installation with respect to your design.
Few, if any, materials surpass architectural terra cotta (ATC) in its inherent longevity, sustainability, malleability, UV resistance, and ability to withstand severe climates. When coupled with the possibilities in texture and finish that it can offer, it is no wonder that terra cotta continues to be the cladding material of choice for many designers.
Boston Valley can custom fabricate ATC not only for historic restoration facades, but for contemporary, high-performance building envelopes as well.
