AUB welcomes Peter Zinck of the Danish brickmaker Petersen, world innovators in the making and use of bricks.

Petersen Tegl is a Danish brickworks which manufactures and sells bricks with emphasis on excellent craftsmanship.

As one of the few brickworks in the world, Petersen Tegl masters the art of firing bricks using coal as fuel. This process adds vibrant light and dark shades to the waterstruck bricks.The brickworks also manufactures the handcrafted Kolumba™ and Petersen Cover™, a range of tile products for façades and roofs.

Bricks developed for special assignments are a key business area, where work is carried out in close co-operation with architects or construction clients. Petersen Tegl was founded in 1791 and has been run by the same family in a direct line ever since. Today, the brickworks exports its products around the world, including the USA, Japan, Australia, Russia and several European countries.
