Bricks and Building Materials
The power of our Group approach enables us to confidently meet our customers’ needs.
Through the established relationships with UK and European brick manufacturers across the Group, we can ensure access to strong supply channels, including when there has been excess demand in the UK market.
In 2021, we acquired leading brick, timber, cladding and masonry provider Taylor Maxwell, which now combined with existing material supplying businesses, means we are able to offer architects, contractors and developers an even more expansive portfolio of products. Through combining key functions, we are able to provide an even more efficient service to customers and suppliers. As stated by John Richards, Chairman, “this acquisition has brought significant scale and diversity to the Group through its product offering by adding timber and cladding materials and increasing our presence in brick distribution, while also expanding the customer base, with the business predominantly focusing activities on the merchanting and specification markets”.
