451,000 dozen of ware is produced this year – the most since production began.  However, due to the fuel supply issues and the use of wood as a substitute for coal, an estimated 500 dozen per oven per years is being lost.  Equipment is now reaching the end of its life and modernisation is needed, so Arklow Pottery consults with potteries in Stoke-on-Trent.

Arklow at this time runs low on accommodation and it’s proposed that Arklow Pottery build cottages to assist workers.
