Go Eco Friendly With Hanson And Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire

The new Ecostock Brick From Hanson Brick Protect The Environment!

From process to product, the new Hanson Ecostock range is the most envi­ron­men­tally friendly stock brick range in the UK.

The cutting edge technology reduces energy consumption by up to 50% in the manufacture of the Ecostock brick range.

Produced at their Measham plant, the Ecostock range reflects the future demands of manuf­ac­turing and the environment. Hanson utilises the very latest ground breaking technology in susta­ina­bility and production efficiency, offering advanced colour consistency, dimensional accuracy and quality.

Hi-tech manufacture

The latest computerised technology, along with a fully automated production process, allows for a highly efficient plant to meet future brick manuf­ac­turing requ­ire­ments.


The Measham plant is designed to a BREEAM “Very Good” standard and incorporates a range of envi­ron­mental features. Water used in the manuf­ac­turing process is recycled, and raw material wastage is less than 1%. The kiln is designed for maximum efficiency, with heat being automati­cally recycled for use in other areas of the plant.  

Exceptional Quality

Precise batching, blending and mixing techniques coupled with greater temperature control ensure consistent colour, dimensional accuracy and high product quality.

The Greener Fleet

Being greener does not stop with the manuf­ac­turing Hanson has a new fleet of vehicles with envi­ron­men­tally friendly Euro 5 engines that meet and exceed stringent emissions standards and, with improved fuel efficiency, the lorries minimise envi­ron­mental impact when delivering to the merchants.
