Old Hickory Clay Company Celebrates 100th Anniversary

Posted By Ariel Hill-Davis, Friday, October 19, 2018

Old Hickory Clay Company hit a tremendous milestone today in celebrating their centennial. Founded in 1918 by the Powell family, Old Hickory has been mining, milling and providing quality clays to their customers for 100 years. The company started in Kentucky but has since expanded to operations in four states with some of the best clay deposits in the industry. As a fourth-generation family owned business, Old Hickory works hard to create a family atmosphere in their workplace. They are one of the primary job providers in Gleason, Tennessee and recently helped host the 4th Annual Minerals Day to allow members of the community to learn about ball clay. Old Hickory's centennial is an excellent example of the longevity of mining companies that invest in their communities and manage their operations in sustainable and responsible ways. 

IMA-NA congratulates Old Hickory on their centennial and looks forward to their continued success!

Posted By Ariel Hill-Davis, Thursday, October 5, 2017

Tomorrow kicks off the first event of 2017's North American Minerals Day. Imerys Ceramics, Old Hickory Clay Company, Gleason Clay Company, and Lhoist Spinks Clay are hosting the 3rd Annual Ball Clay Day in Gleason Tennessee. Like many of the minerals represented by IMA-NA, ball clay production is the main industry in its community. Tomorrow all four companies will put on a day to celebrate the role ball clay plays in the community. Festivities include mine tours, local artisans, large equipment displays, educational exhibits, local food vendors, and more. IMA-NA is excited to note that Ball Clay Day is becoming a local tradition and a great way for kids and adults of all ages to come learn more about the unique nature of their community and its role in the world. Stay tuned tomorrow for updates on the event!

The event will take place from 10-2 at Mike Snider Park.
