Clay Brick: Shaping our built environment

With a long history of brickmaking expertise, UK’s clay brick manufacturers benefit from high-quality local raw materials. The rich clay deposits across the UK provide an abundant natural resource for brick production. This allows manufacturers to source materials from local quarries, reducing transportation costs and carbon emissions. Most importantly, a local industry ensures exceptional quality.

With strong raw material supplies and longstanding production infrastructure in place, UK-based manufacturers are committed to continuous investment programmes and are well-equipped to satisfy national clay brick requirements for generations to come. When specifying bricks made in the UK, they stand out for quality assurance, sustainability, and supply security.
