Michelmersh Brick Holdings was established in November 1997 to enable the acquisition of Michelmersh Brick & Tile and Dunton Brothers.
Dunton makes traditional bricks at Ley Hill, Buckinghamshire and Michelmersh Brick & Tile is a long established business manufacturing premium quality bricks and tiles operating from a site near Romsey, Hampshire.
In February 1999, the business of Charnwood was acquired in Leicestershire. Charnwood has an excellent reputation for high quality handmade bricks for building and restoration projects. Charnwood Bricks were recently used in the restoration of St Pancras Station.
In February 2000, the Company acquired Blockleys in Telford, the leading producer of specification wire cut bricks and clay pavers. The 100 acre site also includes a quarry and landfill operation and some 80 acres of land on which a phased residential redevelopment scheme has been approved in outline by the local planning authority.
The Group has consistently invested in its plant to maximise the efficiency and quality of its product.
In 2004 shares were offered to the public as the business was successfully floated on the AIM Market.
In 2009 Hathern Terra cotta was established at our Charnwood plant continuing over 100 years of tradition in the manufacture of faience. Already work has been won at the Savoy Hotel and Victoria and Albert Museum.
Our most recent acquisition is Freshfield Lane Brickworks, the leading manufacturer of clamp-fired stock bricks based near Haywards Heath. The business has built a strong reputation for excellence in the production of distinctive, clamp fired, multi-coloured stock facing bricks and pavers targeted at the niche premium segment of the market.
The Group now employs over 300 people at its five plants and has an annual capacity of some 70 million pieces.
The latest acquisition has reinforced our position as Britain's Brick Specialists. Our skills, service, range of products and well invested plant combine to provide distinctive products not only that we can be proud of, but that also give value and pleasure to our customers, those involved in design and construction and to generations to come.
