Resco A

Found in Avonbridge by Joe Pason.

Unidentified manufacturer.


The find location would suggest Scottish origins but …

The stamp has the look of a Craigend Refractory, Falkirk stamp and it is of note it was found alongside a ‘Craigend Falcon’ fire brick.( Craigend Refractories also manufactured fire bricks stamped ‘Falcon A’.

It is of note that there is a Company operating out of the USA  called Resco Products Inc and they manufacture many refractory products including fire bricks. The company was founded in 1946 and was originally known as Refractory Specialties Co.

September/October 1985 – The Refractories Journal – Resco Products (UK) Ltd is the new name for Newbold Refractories Ltd. Newbold became a subsidiary of Resco Products 2 years ago and it is therefore, a natural progression to change the name to that of the parent company.
