About

THE BRICK DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION

The Association is the national authority on clay bricks and pavers. Our 15-strong membership accounts for almost 100% of the sector’s productivity here in the UK. Our role is to communicate the collective interests of our members and to ensure their products remain the material of choice in the UK’s built environment.

From the breadth of product range and economic contribution offered by our largest, multinational members, to the bespoke craftsmanship offered by our smallest, local members, that which our clients have in common is a resolute commitment to manufacturing products of outstanding quality and developing one of our nation’s most successful, sustainable supply chains.

Our members work together for the benefit of the sector and the wider industry, collaborating on important subjects such as brickwork standards, sustainability and public relations, and in so doing provide invaluable, collective expertise.

For further information about the Association and our work, speak with one of our friendly team on 0207 323 7030 or email brick@brick.org.uk

UK SUPPLY CHAIN CONTINUES TO MEET RISING DEMAND

The steady increase in UK-manufactured clay brick deliveries continues in line with demand.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) Department for Business Innovation and Skills, show that the sector has sustained a consistent rise in deliveries during the last twelve months. A significant year-on-year rise in deliveries was published for the fourth quarter of 2016 (up 26% compared to the same period in 2015), a trend that has continued in the first quarter of 2017, which has seen deliveries increase by 17% against the first quarter of 2016.

UK manufacturers have responded to improving market conditions. At this time of significant change, clay brick offers the certainty and sound economic investment our construction industry needs.
