Company achieves highest-possible accreditation in new Brickmakers Quality Charter certification
IBSTOCK, the UK’s largest brickmaker and leading manufacturer and supplier of clay and concrete building solutions, have achieved the highest level of accreditation with a newly launched quality mark from the Brick Development Association (BDA).
The BDA’s Brickmakers Quality Charter has been launched to promote the responsible sourcing of clay bricks, providing the whole UK construction supply chain with complete assurance that the highest standards have been adhered to during the manufacturing process.
Clay brick manufacturers who sign up to the scheme are awarded a one-, two- or three-star rating, depending on how many of the qualifying criteria they meet. Ibstock are one of the first brickmakers nationwide to achieve accreditation from the new charter, gaining the highest-possible three-star rating from the BDA.
Joe Hudson, chief executive officer of Ibstock plc, said: ‘I’m delighted to confirm that Ibstock are one of the first manufacturers to secure accreditation and join the registry, securing a three-star rating.
‘To achieve the highest-possible level of certification from the BDA is no mean feat and represents both our investment in quality and commitment to maintaining the highest possible ethical standards across our supply chain.’
