  • Our four cornerstones

Our four cornerstones

Our vision is to become the most recognised and respected provider of building material solutions in the UK market. We want to be understood by our customers and employees as focused on delivering products, services and solutions that contribute towards a better quality of life.

To help achieve that vision, we’ve got four cornerstones, each helping us play our part in creating beautiful, comfortable and sustainable places to live, work and play.

Our four cornerstones are Quality and Expertise, Sustainability, Value and Innovation

Sustainability

For a better quality environment and community

At Wienerberger, sustainability means adding social and environmental value through our operational activities and product design. At its core, it’s about trying to do more with less and delivering value for stakeholders in an ethical manner.

 

Quality & Expertise

For a better quality of product

At Wienerberger, we can’t see quality without expertise and so it forms one of our four cornerstones. Our expertise is founded on the knowledge and skills of our people - and their passion for what they do.

 

Value

For a better quality of service

When we say value we don’t mean price. At Wienerberger, value is more than profit, more than cost efficiencies. It’s giving our customers the solutions that they need, exceeding expectations wherever we can and at every individual stage of the supply chain.

Innovation

For a better quality of idea

Like all the best businesses, we’re determined to find new ways to be better. By embracing innovation in all areas of our business, in all its many forms, we’re able to constantly improve what we can offer our customers.

Quality and expertise, Value, Innovation, and Sustainability - these are our cornerstones. These are the bricks on which we are built and the foundations in which we build. The products we manufacture, the services we deliver and the skills we pass on. The technologies we lead, the innovations we pioneer and the aesthetics we love are all part of the same purpose. To help us create intelligent, sustainable solutions for our customers. For the built environment and for everyone who lives within it.

For a better quality of product

At Wienerberger, we can’t see quality without expertise and so it forms one of our four cornerstones.

Our expertise is founded on the knowledge and skills of our people - and their passion for what they do.

We believe it shows in the products we create. From handmade heritage roof tiles, to innovative systems like our Porotherm clay block walling system, to specialist products like our special shaped bricks or brick and paver slips, we’re committed to making sure that our range of over 1000 products demonstrates the values that we believe in.

 

For a better quality of skills

Our business requires a huge range of professional skillsets and it’s our responsibility to nurture and develop them.

By doing so, not only can we help individuals to realise their career goals, but it means we are constantly raising standards for our customers.

But we’ve also got a keen eye on the future. The construction industry is facing a major skills shortage, so we help to train the trades people of the tomorrow through a number of schemes including product donations to colleges and national building competitions, and apprenticeships in multiple areas of our business.

 

We also help further development by providing inspiring project case studies, technical hubs for each sector, learning resources on every material and bespoke training, such as our RIBA certified complementary CPD for architects.

  • Sustainability

Sustainability

Sustainability Prism

For a better quality of environment and community

At Wienerberger, sustainability means adding social and environmental value through our operational activities and products. At its core, it’s about trying to do more with less and growing our business in an ethical manner.

We aim to minimise the amount natural resources we consume and the greenhouse gas emissions we generate. This influences our product design and drives innovation in our manufacturing process. Secondly, we seek to incorporate raw materials from recycled and secondary-sources and aim to recycle any waste we create.

Of course if we’re considering our environment, we’re considering communities as well. We play an active role in our communities by hosting events and visits for special interest groups, schools and universities. We also support charities who share our mission to improve people’s quality of life by providing sustainable solutions for constructing or renovating buildings.

  • Value

Value

For a better quality of service

When we say value we don’t mean price. At Wienerberger, value is more than profit, more than cost efficiencies. It’s giving our customers the solutions that they need, exceeding expectations wherever we can and at every individual stage of the supply chain.

Service is an area in which we want to add value. We’re passionate about the products we manufacture, and we want to echo that in the service we give our customers.

Whether it’s tools like RoofSPEC®, apps to search our wide range of solutions, creating BIM Objects for our products, or simply being willing to share any relevant expertise that we have with our customers, it’s something we pride ourselves on.

Take A Closer Look Prism

Like all the best businesses, we’re determined to find new ways to be better.

By embracing innovation in all areas of our business, in all its many forms, we’re able to constantly improve what we can offer our customers, as well as consolidating our position as industry thought leaders and winning awards for everything from bespoke product apps to new housing solutions.

For a better quality of technology

New technologies are at the heart of many of our innovations. But that doesn’t mean that we’re turning our back on traditional techniques and materials. In fact, we are using technology to help ensure those techniques and materials are ever more relevant to the digital age.

From BIM technology to app development and online tools, we use technology to make our portfolio of products and solutions easier to find, easier to get and easier to use.

For a better quality of idea

Our industry thrives on creativity and problem solving, so being able to respond to the demands and challenges of the projects that we are involved with is crucial to who we are.

Throughout the supply chain, we encourage our people to find solutions wherever they can. It’s this approach that has shaped our portfolio, driven technological development and inspired our flagship e4 brick house: a fully realised and affordable solution to the UK housing crisis. 

For a better quality of design

We believe in the value of great design - which is why our products are designed for more than just performance, durability and value alone. The UK has a rich and diverse building vernacular and we want our products to make a genuine aesthetic contribution to it, both now and in the future.

Our building products and systems aim to allow architects and designers to fully express their vision on a project, whatever that might be. From brick slips and special bricks to traditional heritage clay tiles, and with every product fully BIM compatible, we aim to ensure that our portfolio can match an architect’s imagination.
