Forterra announces sustainable brick range

Forterra has announced they are launching a Repair, Maintenance and Improvement range of bricks, produced at their factories in Lancashire and Nottinghamshire.

The RMI range offers a selection curated from Forterra’s Butterley bricks. Renowned for their heritage appeal and authentic finish, they have been used in the construction of notable landmarks worldwide including King’s Cross St. Pancreas and Battersea Power Station in London.

This is because they use clay sourced from nearby quarries, ensuring that the bricks’ colour and finish fit in with the natural and built landscapes of the surrounding area.

“Forterra’s RMI range represents a significant milestone in our commitment to sustainable and locally sourced building materials,” said Neil Ash, CEO at Forterra. “We are proud to offer a range of bricks that not only meet the highest standards of durability and frost resistance but also seamlessly blend into the existing built environment, preserving the character and charm of each location.”

Forterra’s commitment to sustainable practices and reducing environmental impact has been demonstrated by them with their solar farm, a new eco fleet of trucks, and new reduced plastic packaging solutions, as well as the brand new Desford factory which is the most efficient factory in Europe.
