The new Ibstock Brick App, which is the first of its kind, has been developed as a mobile brick selector for use on Smartphones such as the Blackberry and iPhone. Offering excellent functionalities including the ability to quickly and easily order brick samples, thumbnail and full size quality images and full technical specifications for more than 450 Ibstock bricks, the new online tool is set to save valuable time, allowing builders to stay onsite for longer.

“Our newly launched Brick App will provide customers with access to our comprehensive range of bricks, within a few seconds, anytime, anywhere and for free. Just as we did when we launched our revolutionary product portfolio and online brick selector, we are changing the way in which the brick industry does business and setting a new standard in service.”
