New Imperial premises mean more stock and new brick ranges

  • 3 Aug 2021

Imperial Bricks has invested £1.5million in a move to new, larger premises and development of state-of-the-art machinery.

The new, four-acre site in Bridgnorth, Shropshire will be in addition to two other storage facilities situated across the country. This means Imperial now has the capacity to stock 12 million bricks in the UK.

The new machinery has more than doubled the processing/finishing capacity of Imperial’s unique reclamation brick ranges. It also allows for further new product development.

As part of the move, Imperial has invested in revolutionary new facilities dedicated to the large-scale production of tumbled bricks.

This is the first facility of its kind, which processes its new, traditionally-made bricks to achieve indistinguishable alternatives to genuine reclaimed bricks, which can be difficult to source in volume.

Bricks from this range have been used by developers such as Millwood Homes (supplied by Parker Building Supplies) on a number of new build housing developments in the South-East.

‘Securing the reliable supply’

Jason Hughes, Managing Director of Imperial Bricks, comments: “We can now offer merchants new brick ranges and complementary products, as well as securing the reliable supply for which Imperial is recognised.

“So, merchants can sell more bricks and a wider choice, and differentiate their branches.”

The move was several years in the offing. It was in response to demand for Imperial Bricks’ range of over 70 handmade, pressed and engineering bricks. 

Imperial’s bricks are manufactured with exclusive partner factories in Europe and Asia. Imperial works with its partners over many years to develop new ranges, and many of its bricks are processed by machine or hand at its UK premises. This is to add authentic features such as weathering, sooting, or a reclamation finish. 

All the factories Imperial Bricks uses meet strict ethical and quality assurances. This is at least six out of seven internationally recognised manufacturing and supply standards.
