Forterra profile


About Forterra

Forterra is a leading UK manufacturer of clay and concrete building products. Across our 17 manufacturing sites our 1,800 employees create the bricks, blocks, precast concrete, paving, and many other vital products that keep Britain building.

Our portfolio contains some of the most recognised and respected names in the construction industry. Some of them, such as London Brick and Butterley, date back to the 19th century while others, such as Ecostock, Formpave and Jetfloor, are far more recent; but whether historic or modern, traditional, or cutting edge, they all have the needs of 21st century construction at core.

Committed to sustainability

Our business has a significant footprint, whether this is measured through the number of people we employ, the volume of raw materials we consume, the emissions from our sites, or simply the lives we touch through the properties built from our products. We are working hard to ensure our impact is always as positive as possible and, to this end, we use three sustainability pillars – people, planet, and product – to guide our decision making.

We were the first UK brick manufacturer to sign up to the Race to Zero global campaign and, building on our achievements of the last 10 years, we have recently announced new sustainability targets designed to help the UK reach Net Zero Carbon by 2050.

Committed to our people

We give our employees the very best opportunities and support to grow and build the knowledge and skills that will enable them to develop rewarding careers, where they are able to influence and contribute positively to the future direction and success of our business.

Our graduate schemes have been designed to develop highly successful managers and leaders, fast-tracking them along their chosen career path. We expect big things from our graduates, but, in return, they receive outstanding, hands-on opportunities to get involved in organising and leading projects that address real business challenges.
