From foundations to the last finial, we are here to support you with vital building products and services that will help you to make your next construction project a successful one. Browse our ranges of bricks, blocks, precast and more.
Forterra is a leading UK manufacturer of essential clay and concrete building products, with a unique combination of strong market positions in clay bricks, concrete blocks and precast concrete flooring. Our purpose is to Keep Britain Building efficiently, sustainably and economically.
As a UK-based manufacturer, our products travel far fewer miles than those imported from abroad. Even the majority of our raw ingredients are sourced from our own quarries on land adjacent to our factories, minimising emissions associated with transport still further. Plus, by keeping our manufacturing here in the UK, we ensure local communities and economies are able to thrive.
With a manufacturing heritage that dates back many decades, our clay and concrete building products have been used to build over a quarter of England’s housing stock, some of the UK’s most notable structures – from football stadia and hospitals to train stations and road infrastructure – and to restore many of our treasured historic buildings.
From our 17 manufacturing sites, we produce over 600 building products across nine brands. We make our bricks, blocks, precast concrete, paving, and many other vital products that keep Britain building, right here in the UK, for use by the UK construction industry. Our products support both traditional and modern methods of construction.
From the sourcing of our raw ingredients to the energy that powers our factories and the vehicles we use to deliver the finished goods to customers, every decision we make is done with sustainability and the environment in mind. We have set ourselves challenging targets to reduce our impact still further, including reducing the CO2 intensity of our products and sending zero waste to landfill.
