Breedon announces opening of new tile factory in Northern Ireland

Breedon Group plc (“Breedon” or the “Group”), a leading vertically-integrated construction materials group in Great Britain and Ireland, is pleased to announce the opening of a new concrete tile production factory in Lisburn, Northern Ireland.

Breedon’s significant investment at this site will reduce local supply chain constraints and enable quicker and more efficient processes in order to produce high quality tiles at a faster production rate. The new factory contains advanced, modern equipment, increasing Breedon’s tile production capacity in the region by over 80%, from 12 million to 22 million tiles per annum. This new facility will ensure the Group remains at the forefront of tile manufacturing in Northern Ireland.

The new plant in Lisburn will boost the local economy and will drive innovation and manufacturing capabilities in Belfast.

The site has been designed with sustainability as a key consideration. The successful ESG journey of the tile business and the significant decrease in carbon generated per m2 of tiles, is something the team is exceptionally proud of.

Jude Lagan, Managing Director, Cement and Products at Breedon Group, said:

“I am proud to see the opening of this impressive facility in Lisburn, demonstrating our commitment to our business in Ireland, whilst benefitting the wider region, providing more supply and enabling secondary and tertiary industries to thrive.”
