Imperial Bricks has announced it has become an approved supplier to all members of the FORTIS independent merchant buying group.
With a 20% increase in business growth year on year reported, Imperial has credited this success to a surge in demand for reclamation-style bricks.
The traditional handmade brick market has grown rapidly over the last 10 years and Imperial now offer a range of over 50 traditional handmade, wirecut, waterstruck and pressed bricks. Imperial has also introduced seven varieties of metric waterstruck bricks, designed for new builds using metric lintel and block measurements.
Jason Hughes, Managing Director, commented: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to trade with FORTIS members, offering them traditional handmade bricks, regionally-matched to their area. Our Merchant Team is always out on the road, whether it’s delivering samples for a new brick library and POS displays or helping with a brick match.
“We look forward to working with existing customers who are FORTIS members, as well as engaging with new members to show how stocking traditional handmade bricks can add value to their business.”
