Family tradition since 1862


The JUWÖ Poroton-Werke Ernst Jungk & Sohn GmbH (JUWÖ) is one of the leading brickworks in germany. It was founded in 1862 and has been in existence for 150 years. The company is still family owned and managed by the 5th generation.

JUWÖ were the originators of the current Poroton clay block system. As a company JUWÖ is committed to continuing research and development to produce sustainable, person friendly construction products. The company is the only brickwork in the southwest of Germany.

The JUWO Poroton clay block is unique among building materials. It offers a great range of benefits.

The Hanging gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Wonders of the World; the great wall of China the largest man made object on the planet and the only one seen from space; the Hagia Sophia one of the most beautiful churches ever built; the structure of the Tag Mahal and the Colesium in Rome all have one thing in common:

They were built in clay blocks.

We have used our tradition and expertise built up through 5 generations and our commitment to inovation to turn clay blocks into the building material for the 21st century and beyond .
