Cemex UK has launched a facing brick range made at the company’s factory in West Calder, Scotland.
The Cemex ReadyBrick facing bricks offer builders an alternative 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 has six standard – 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 perforations to allow for better and easier placement by the builder. “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,” says Mathew Tranter.
The Cemex ReadyBrick range is available in Scotland and the North of England with plans to expand distribution.
