Water is the way to continuous improvement at Brickfab

Water is the way to continuous improvement at Brickfab

Key to Brickfab’s success and consistent growth, even during periods of recession, has been their focus on innovation and sustainable continuous improvement throughout all areas of the business.

Embedding a lean and Kaizen culture of reviewing processes and procedures has enabled Brickfab to identify where and how they can improve customer service.

The company has demonstrated their commitment to the environment and to be ‘simply better ’, with the new water treatment plant put into full operation at our factory in Stoke on Trent. The system, which mirrors the one at Pontypool which has been operating for several years, collects water used on brick cutting machinery into a tank set into the factory floor.

The water is then filtered, separating all the brick and block dust, and then pumped back to the saws for reuse, providing a clean and sustainable water supply. As such, only the water absorbed by the material being cut is lost and we typically recycle over 95% of our water.

The new system has transformed the cutting process at Brickfab Stoke. The saws are constantly supplied with clean sediment-free water, this allows for a more efficient cutting process and in turn has improved the quality and consistency of our output and provided us with great cutting blade life and time savings.

This significant investment is the latest example of Brickfab’s continued commitment to producing the highest quality prefabricated building products for their customers.
