Imperial Bricks has become the supplier of choice for FORTIS.

It has become an approved brick supplier to all members of the independent timber, building and lightside merchant buying group.

This means members will have discounted access to Imperial’s 50+ traditional handmade, wirecut, waterstruck and pressed bricks.

Jason Hughes, Imperial’s Managing Director, said: “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.”

Imperial has seen recent growth of 20% year-on-year, which it credits to a surge in demand for reclamation-style bricks. It also says there has been increased demand for traditional handmade bricks over the last ten years.
