Last week saw the launch of our new range of bricks at the Scotland Build 2016 show. The CEMEX Readybrick facing range is ‘hot off the press’ at the company’s state-of-the-art factory in West Calder, Scotland.
The facing bricks offer builders and house developers an alternative solution to clay bricks, with a shorter production lead time and quick turnaround to keep up with the growing demand from new housing developments.
The range consists of six standard colours – Lanark Brindle, Lauder Marigold, Leith Iron, Lothian Gold, Perthshire Red and Tannochside Buff – aptly named with a Scottish influence, reflecting their manufacture in Scotland using locally sourced materials.
The bricks have been carefully engineered with perforations to allow for better and easier placement by the builder, saving valuable time.
“We have been working with some of the UK’s biggest names in house building to understand the ergonomics of a facing brick. This new range is truly the new face of concrete bricks. Our high capacity production facility ensures that we can be very responsive to the needs of our customers,” comments Mathew Tranter.
The CEMEX Readybrick facing range is available across Scotland and the North of England with plans to expand the distribution areas. The Readybrick range is produced alongside concrete blocks and block paving allowing customers to take deliveries of mixed loads of building products.
