Latest News Mon, Jan 23, 2017 2:14 PM

Belgian brick and pavers manufacturer, Vandersanden Group, has today announced its acquisition of Hoskins Brick Limited, the company’s exclusive UK distribution partner.

Vandersanden Group is one of the largest brick manufacturers in Europe, with a total annual production capacity of approximately 370 million bricks. The company consists of Vandersanden Belgium with 2 factories in Spouwen and Lanklaar employing approximately 210 employees, and Vandersanden Netherlands with 2 factories in Hedikhuizen and Spijk, employing approximately 120 employees. There are also 5 members of staff working at a sales office in Northern France (Halluin).

Jean-Pierre Wuytack, Chief Executive Officer of Vandersanden Group commented; ‘Our company has been active in the UK for over 20 years using Hoskins Brick as its exclusive business partner.The decision to now acquire Hoskins has been linked to several key factors. We have been keen to operate directly in the UK for some time.This, coupled with the imminent retirement of Hoskins Brick Chairman, Alan Hoskins, led to negotiations between both parties and we jointly felt it was an appropriate time to enter into an acquisition agreement.’

Both companies are family-owned, share a mutual respect and hold similar values and philosophy for doing business. Both also strive towards excellent results for customers, with an emphasis on honesty and integrity and the importance of maintaining a positive attitude at work.
