Three new members have joined the Roof Tile Association, the industry body representing clay and concrete roof tile manufacturers in the UK.

Spicer Tiles, based in Kent, Enniskillen-based Mannok and Breedon, whose headquarters are in Lisburn, take the total number of RTA member companies to ten.

Welcoming the new members, RTA chair Alex Patrick-Smith, of Dreadnought Tiles, said: “As the voice representing manufacturers of pitched roof solutions, we are delighted to welcome three new members to the Roof Tile Association and look forward to working with them to continue to support and promote the values and development of our industry in the UK.”

Founded in 1979, Spicer Tiles is a family business making handmade clay tiles using traditional methods.

Managing Director Adam Spicer said: “Spicer Tiles is proud to become a member of the RTA with the aim of shining a light on the importance of British manufacturing, working to keep traditional manufacturing methods alive and relevant in a world that seems to be aimed towards uniformity.”

Mannok produces a wide range of building materials including concrete roof tiles.

GB Sales Director Lee Gillman said: “We’re delighted to be part of the Roof Tile Association, to collaborate on industry best practice and work together as an industry to ensure the long-term sustainability of the pitched roofing sector. As the voice of the industry, the Roof Tile Association will provide us with a valuable platform to connect with a wider customer base and help consolidate our position as a trusted supplier of high-quality Roof Tiles.”

Breedon also produces an array of construction materials including clay bricks and clay and concrete roof tiles.

Commercial Director Mark Morris said: “Breedon Tile are delighted to now be a member of the Roof Tile Association. The majority of the tiles we manufacture at our plant in Northern Ireland are shipped to Great Britain. We hope our input into the various working groups within RTA will benefit the membership, as we also hope membership will enrich our knowledge base in relation to the pitched roofing industry in Great Britain.”
