Lignacite LTD

Formed in 1947 Lignacite has continued to develop innovative mixes and designs for their building blocks; more recently testing and successfully utilising many recycled materials in an effort to produce more sustainable products.

Our values and product range

Much has changed over the years; however our core values and principles have endured.

From the early days of using local wood shavings, to today, where every Lignacite product contains a high degree of recycled and waste material.  We supply added value, bespoke concrete and masonry which is designed, sourced and manufactured in the UK.

From a single product, we now produce a range of blocks to meet a variety of needs. These range from lightweight for use by housebuilders to high density structural blocks such as those which support The Shard or form the central core of The Gherkin.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. From locally sourced wood shavings to a high degree of recycled material, we are fully committed to improving our environmental performance.

We work based on clear communication,  transparency, partnership and trust. Living by these rules day to day makes us who we are.

A consistent approach to both product and service ensures that our customers can rely on us to deliver high quality time and time again.

We understand that every customer has individual needs. By embracing change in the products and services we offer, we continue to be flexible and agile in our delivery.

Manufacturing Plants and capabilities

Lignacite’s block manufacturing plants located in Norfolk and Essex, are responsible for producing over 100,000 blocks per day, enough blocks for building approximately 100 houses. The company works closely with many of the leading builders merchants throughout East Anglia and the City (South East) as well as supplying many major house builders and contractors.

The blocks have been used in major city projects, many of these in London, and the fleet of FORS Gold accredited lorries enable the company to deliver to almost any site in the capital. An important consideration for contractors in cities. Recent examples include the development of Battersea Power Station, Chelsea Barracks and the new Google Headquarters..
