Hycroft China
In 1955, the Yuill family sold the Medicine Hat Potteries to Marwell Construction of Vancouver. In 1957, the company was sold to businessman, Harry Veiner. He had no previous knowledge of pottery manufacturing. He felt that there was no reason why this company should be losing money. He took over management and reduced staff substantially.
Veiner decided to start making sanitary ware. Hycroft China may have been the only plant in the world that ran toilets and dishes through the same kiln. One style of toilet produced at Hycroft was named the "Albertan". This addition saved Hycroft. By Veiner’s own admission, neither the toilets nor the pottery alone could keep the company in business. The factory ran on and off until 1989 when it shut down.After Mr. Veiner past away in 1992 his family donated the Hycroft plant to the Friends of Medalta Society. In 1994, the Friends of Medalta established the Clay Products Interpretive Centre in the Hycroft buildings.
The Hycroft China factory was designated a Provincial Historic site in 1995
