Whilst AAB's main focus is clay facing bricks, customer demand has lead us to supply complimentary materials such as Specials, Bricks Slips, Arches and Stone.
Special shapes and pieces are essential in construction and can add decorative touches. More importantly, they save time on site and ensure durability of design. Dependent on your brick selection AAB offer purpose made and cut & bond specials.
Brick slips can be manufactured or cut from pre manufactured bricks. Their popularity is growing with the use of lightweight off-site building elements and increased property refurbishment.
Our arches are pre fabricated non structural building elements. They are designed to increase site efficiency and remove the need for intricate and slow brick work on site. When used in conjunction with a load bear lintel to end result is a seamless brick arch.
Since 1894, Egernsund Tegl has been manufacturing and selling bricks, roof tiles and other associated clay products from five brickyards spread throughout Denmark.
Today, product development, quality, technical advice and a clear focus on customer service are the key areas for the business. Fundamentally however, the tile brick products still look the same, but with all the expected qualities associated with its aesthetics, technical and durability aspects.
Daas Baksteen was founded in 1890 by the great grandfather of the current owner Gert Jan den Daas.
In the early years, it was a small local brick and tile factory, but soon grew and achieved success around the world. Since then, the company has grown to become an internationally renowned manufacturer of ceramic façade products.
The company and its factory Klinkerwerk Küsters were founded in 1905 by Matthias Küsters in the city of Kleve, formerly the Roman settlement of ‘Celina’, from which the modern company name derives.
Now in the 21st century, the company are still on the same original factory site, with the same family-guided principles, but with an ever-expanding range of high quality fired clay products, ranging from traditional to modern architecturally popular colours, formats and surfaces.
