Forterra plc was formerly Hanson’s UK building products division, founded in the early 1960s.
This business built up a significant UK presence through a number of acquisitions, including The Butterley Company Ltd in 1968, London Brick PLC in 1984, Marshalls Flooring in 2002, Marshalls Clay Products Ltd and Thermalite Ltd in 2005, Red Bank Manufacturing Company Ltd and Formpave Holdings Ltd in 2006, and Bison Precast in 2017.
In September 2007, Hanson was acquired by the HeidelbergCement Group and in March 2015 the HeidelbergCement Group sold the Company and Hanson’s North American building products business to Lone Star Funds.
In October 2015, the Company rebranded under the name Forterra.
In April 2016 the Company gained admission to the London Stock Exchange as an independent listed company.
