Clay brick is a local product for local communities. It’s been that way for thousands of years. When you consider that 85% of the bricks used in the UK are manufactured here, then it’s easy to see why we are a country built on local produced clay brick.
Clay brick from UK brick manufacturers travels on average no more than 68 miles from factory to site. Compared to other building materials, which might require transportation across large distances, clay brick’s short distance from factory to construction site minimises economic and environmental costs.
