A new Company ‘FabSpeed UK’ has been created by the merger of 2 leading Brick Fabrication Specialists: The Fab-Lite Group (North) & LiteSpeed Construction Systems (South), will join forces from the 1st of March.
Combining nearly 70 years of experience & technical ‘know-how’ in the Brick Industry, the Business’ will create one of the UK’s largest off-site brick fabrication companies. Offering a nationwide service in Prefabricated Brick Chimneys, Arches, Brick Special Shapes as well as a specialist range of BBA approved panel and masonry support systems.
The enlarged new business is well placed to help deliver the Government & Construction Industry drive to move to off-site solutions and utilise modern methods of construction, which is critical to overcome the skills shortage & provide the increased demand in future housing, infrastructure & commercial construction projects.
Chris Penston & Mark Richards the respective Directors of each business will continue to be involved on a day to day basis helping drive FabSpeed UK forward.
Chris Penston commented; ‘The merger of our 2 business’ will under one brand, bring the leading players in our Industry together to create a one stop shop across the UK, sharing best practice between our 3 manufacturing sites and giving the customers the confidence that we will have the technical expertise, backed by accredited products to supply construction sites across the UK. We will continue to invest in automated processes to ensure that we remain at the forefront of our market at competitive prices.
Mark Richards commented; ‘The Brick Fabrication industry is currently fragmented and regional. We need to ensure that our customers have the support of a truly national business that has scale and takes seriously its obligations on Quality, Health & Safety and the Environment whilst at the same time keeping its focus on customer service. This merger ensures that we are at the forefront of all of these as we continue to look for further expansion opportunities across the UK.
Both Directors wish to thank existing Customers, Suppliers and Staff, all of whom have played their part in this opportunity and will continue to do so in the future. Immediately it is business as usual. Integration will be a considered process involving all our stakeholders.
