Ibstock Brick (, the UK’s largest brickmaker, has revitalised its popular stand at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre with a complete make-over, giving visitors to the exhibition the chance to see more inspirational brick solutions for the self-build market, than ever before.

Featuring the UK’s widest range of bricks, which include more colour and finish options than any other brickmaker, Ibstock’s new stand is a must see for anyone looking to carry out a new build project.

As the UK's largest brickmaker, with a product range in excess of 400 bricks, we felt that it was important to further support this growing sector and revitalise and update our stand at the National Self Build & Renovation Centre.

However, our new stand is designed, not only showcase our extensive offering and provide the very best technical support on how best to use our products, but also to inspire and help self builders get inventive more with brick. It’s also worth remembering that with such a vast range on offer, finding a solution which will meet local planning requirements couldn’t be easier.

The revamped stand now showcases even more of Ibstock’s extensive brick ranges, including the recently launched Manor and Exclusives ranges, as well as the company’s industry leading literature. In addition, visitors can learn more about Ibstock’s comprehensive selection of bespoke blends which, as well as enabling easier brick matching to older brickwork, encourages self-builders to create buildings with distinctive and attractive aesthetics.

The Ibstock stand also features the company’s diverse range of special shapes and components which have been specifically developed as easy to install, high quality components which will save time and add unique detail to any project.
