C. Spinks Clay Co., Inc. has been supplying premium quality
ball clays worldwide since 1916. An unswerving commitment
to quality was the guiding principle upon which the company
was founded. That principle guides Spinks Clay's operations
today. From the chief executive officer to the operators
and technicians in our production facilities, the genuine
pride in our company and its products and services is evident.
At Spinks, we are in the
business of supplying clay minerals with consistent properties,
in any quantities desired on a reliable delivery schedule.
It's as simple and straightforward as that. With enough
known reserves in the ground to last well into the next
century, Spinks expects to be supplying clay minerals around
the world for decades to come.
Spinks owns substantial
mineral deposits throughout northwest Tennessee. These holdings
represent a "mineral bank" that assures a continuing supply
to meet the growing demand for industrial clay minerals.
We can't predict what life will be like in the 21st century,
but man has been using clay minerals since the dawn of civilization.
We don't expect that to change
Spinks cannot take credit
for the basic clay minerals. After all, nature's manufacturing
process was completed millions of years before our company
was established. But we are not too modest to take some
credit for the way we do business. We run our company on
the basis of honest answers and promises we know we can
keep. We maintain a quality of service that is as consistent
as our product. And we have found it makes sense to maintain
our company headquarters in the same place where we mine
and process the clay minerals. Consequently, any questions
you may have about Spinks, from company policy to delivery
schedules, from prices to technical data, can be answered
right here in Paris, Tennessee.
Spinks Clay began as a
small, hometown business in 1916. The company has grown
and changed considerably since then, but we have strived
to maintain the integrity and personal attention established
over the years. Ideally, we would like to have you visit
our Tennessee operations. But if that is not possible, we
hope this website will provide some insight into the way
we do business.
