At the beginning of 2017, the Vandersanden Group acquired a number of brick factories and brands from CRH plc in the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium. As a result, the clay paver manufacturer Bylandt (with production sites in Tolkamer and Kessel) and facing brick manufacturer Facade Beek also joined the Vandersanden group in the Netherlands.

Customer-focused and innovative
We are happy to advise you on your choice of facing bricks, façade solutions and clay pavers. We want to engage with each and every customer. You can rely on a wealth of expertise from our consultants, architects, construction engineers and installers. Our service team will be pleased to assist with your aesthetic choices, technical questions or complex challenges.
We develop new brick applications or solutions in our own Research & Development department that seamlessly meet the needs of the national and international construction market. An attractive example of this is E-Board®, a façade solution with high-quality insulating properties. We were proud to receive an innovation award for the development of Zero®, a patented brick for joint-free brickwork. Signa®, a prefabricated post and beam construction, was awarded the prestigious international A'design award.
We offer a wide range of bricks in colours ranging from red, brown, grey to black, yellow and cream, and in various sizes and textures. We have a facing brick or clay paver that suits your needs perfectly. All our bricks meet all sustainability quality standard and requirements.
