Our History

It took time for this lightweight material to be accepted by the building industry, but demand increased steadily and a second plant was opened in 1966 with a third following in 1974.  Aircrete products have now been manufactured for over 50 years and yet are still seen by many as a ‘new’ product.

During the late 1990s, building on our reputation for innovation in masonry construction, the H+H Thin-Joint System was launched with its own brand of Celfix mortar. This new approach to masonry building provides huge productivity gains as well as the potential for significant increases in build quality.

In 2017 we re-introduced Celcon Elements as part of the revolutionary I-House System.  These storey-high panels of aircrete allow developers to capitalise on the speed of build associated with offsite construction methods while still relying on the trusted performance of a masonry system.
