The UCM Group comprises five companies located in the UK and US. In the UK, Unitec Ceramics Ltd is principally a producer of fine-sized zirconia powders for use in advanced ceramics. Zirconia is one of the most sophisticated raw minerals in common use and is key to a number of basis industrial processes. For example, calcia-stabilised zirconia is vital to the world steel industry for the continuous casting of steel.

However, the following was announced on 4th December 2008...
Unitec Ceramics is to close its ceramics factory in Stafford in January with the loss of 34 jobs, in order to transfer production to Germany
The site looks like it's been abandoned ALOT longer than 7 months, and there is substantial damage to most of the buildings. Whether this occured in the removal of the machinery, or if the factory was in disrepair before they shut, I don't know.

Most of the site is caked in ceramic dust, so don't do what I do and wear your work trousers.

Visited with locash. This explore was massively aided by Grandmaster Flash on the ride over.
