As the UK's largest brickmaker, with a product range in excess of 400 bricks, we felt that it was important to further support this growing sector and revitalise and update our stand at the National Self Build & Renovation Centre. Self builders are always on the lookout for products that will make their projects stand out from the crowd and with so many different size, finish, colour and regional variations to brick available, selecting the right product can be a daunting task. However, our new stand is designed, not only showcase our extensive offering and provide the very best technical support on how best to use our products, but also to inspire and help self builders get inventive more with brick. It’s also worth remembering that with such a vast range on offer, finding a solution which will meet local planning requirements couldn’t be easier."
