It was great to be invited down to Ibstock Brick for a tour of their Eclipse factory and to discuss all things brick, sustainability and strategy for growth. Ibstock Brick are a leading brickmaker and supplier of brick products with a history dating back over 200 years. The Eclipse factory was first opened in 2018 and can produce 100 million bricks per year. Did you know it covers the size of 6 football pitches!
Jane Edwards of Ibstock showed Andrew Pickersgill and Richard Turner the inner workings of the factory which has the ability to manufacture the widest range of soft mud bricks in the world.
