125 years of Erbslöh - in the beginning...


…was kaolin and Carl Hugo Erbslöh’s purchase of china clay pits in Geisenheim.
At just 26 years of age, Carl Hugo Erbslöh, one of Carl Julius Erbslöh’s six sons, founded the firm C.H. Erbslöh, a chemicals wholesaler, in Düsseldorf. He supplied the west’s paper and ceramics factories, amongst others, with kaolin, a mineral which at this time was mainly imported from Great Britain. At that time there were only a few, small, kaolin pits in the German Reich, in Bavaria and Saxony. The geographical location meant it was possible for him to supply western Germany with English china clay by waterway.
