CEMEX launch concrete facing brick range
Company manufacturing new ReadyBrick range at West Calder concrete products factory
A NEW line of facing bricks – the ReadyBrick range – is now available hot off the presses at CEMEX’s state-of-the-art concrete products factory in West Calder, Scotland.
The new facing bricks offer builders and house developers an alternative solution to clay bricks, with shorter production lead times and quicker 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 – all aptly named to reflect their manufacture in Scotland using locally sourced materials. All the bricks feature 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,’ said CEMEX’s business manager for housing, Matthew Tranter.
The ReadyBrick facing range is currently available across Scotland and the north of England but CEMEX plan to expand the distribution areas. The range is produced alongside concrete blocks and block paving, allowing customers to take deliveries of mixed loads of building products.
