PRESS RELEASE: Briarwood Steps up as an Industry Leading Fibre Cement Manufacturer
The British Farming Family owned company has made a major investment in acquiring their Italian supplier creating an unrivalled combined manufacturer and distributor – “Briarwood Landini”.
Briarwood is well established as the UK’s leading supplier of Fibre Cement Sheets. . For decades they have worked in partnership with their Italian manufacturer Landini s.p.A to develop an innovative combination of materials to produce a fibre cement sheet, EUROSIX, that is specifically designed for the British market
Acquisition of the entire Landini production facility, and 140 strong workforce was a natural progression for the growing company. Now with three fibre cement production lines, two Metal roll-forming lines and three dedicated paint lines, the consolidated product range of Briarwood not only excels in providing complete roofing solutions, but now offers the addition of chimney systems, rainwater treatment and complimentary building products.
This is a momentous step for Briarwood, offering unprecedented control over both manufacture and distribution which enables them to deliver the best value in the market.

Now we have complete control over the entire production and supply process ensuring we can provide the most time and cost-efficient solution to our customers.”
