A Welcome Return to Brickfab

October 2021

We are delighted to announce that a former employee has rejoined Brickfab.

With over 20 years’ experience in the construction industry, Mark Cox will be utilising his extensive knowledge of both the client and supplier sides of the sector to assist the accelerated growth of the business by maintaining and developing relationships with housebuilders and working with the sales and technical teams based in Brickfab’s Pontypool and Stoke on Trent factories.

Brickfab specialise in the design and manufacture of prefabricated brick products including chimneys, canopies, and arches. Before lockdown, the company had experienced a high growth period with orders from national and local housebuilders.
Investment in New Product Ranges and Streamlining Manufacturing Process

When many of the building sites were shut down or restrictions were put in place, the company invested their efforts in developing new product ranges and methods of working to streamline their manufacturing processes. Their new work smart approach has resulted in a significant increase in the number of orders received since building sites reopened and in his new role, Mark Cox will be providing technical support to clients to design, adapt and liaise with other departments in the company to meet this demand.

Nigel Watkins, Brickfab managing director said, “As a company we have been operating for over 20 years and demand for our products is at an all time high. The housebuilding industry has changed with more clients requiring ‘off-site’ manufacturing and pre-fabrication with product being delivered to site when required, rather than being stored there taking up valuable space and storage in secure compounds. Mark is highly respected in our industry, and we are very pleased to welcome him back to the Brickfab family. He has quickly adapted to our new processes, and this combined with his extensive knowledge will be invaluable to us.”

Commenting on returning to Brickfab, Mark Cox said, “I thoroughly enjoyed previously working for the company and left to pursue a new role working on the client side. We kept in touch both professionally and personally throughout the seven years I was gone, and when I was made aware of this new role, I knew it was the right time to return and have been very impressed with not only how the company has grown and developed but also the ambitious plans that are already being implemented.”
