Shackerley - The Company

Origins

Shackerley (Holdings) Group is an independently owned British company with a rich industrial heritage that stretches back over half a century. Founded by Lancashire entrepreneur, Brian G Newell, our business has its roots in the ceramics industry and we have always been involved in the manufacture, prefabrication and distribution of technical products to meet the needs of the architectural and construction industry.

Ceramic granite (Porcelain Stone®)

Shackerley today is a major supplier of external cladding systems and is the UK’s market leader in the design, manufacture and supply of ventilated façades constructed from large format ceramic granite (also known as Porcelain Stone® in the US). We pioneered and developed the UK market for this exceptional external façade solution from the late 1990s onwards with our innovative, Queen’s Award winning range of SureClad® systems.

Heavy investment in specialist facilities, equipment and training at our Lancashire factory has enabled us to maintain our leadership of this growing market for almost two decades, supplying fully-prefabricated, installation-ready systems for high end cladding projects in every sector.

Growth & diversification

In recent years we have exploited the inherent strength and versatility of our SureClad® systems to significantly expand our cladding portfolio.We now offer a comprehensive range of premium façade materials ranging from the very traditional, including limestone, granite and terracotta, through to highly contemporary crystallised glass, and ultra large format engineered stone.

We have also extended our reach into new overseas territories including various counties in mainland Europe and the USA where we have a growing portfolio of completed Porcelain Stone® façade projects

Underpinning this growth and diversification is our firm commitment to provide the very best quality products for every sector in which we operate. In terms of engineering, technical design, performance longevity and aesthetics, our aim is to deliver a superior product to meet your specification. This product offer is backed by expert technical service from a highly experienced team of in-house consultants able to provide specialist advice and assistance at every stage throughout a project.

Our founder

For over thirty years Shackerley’s founder and chief executive Brian G Newell has played an important role within the many different committees that develop and establish new codes of practice and industry standards for the ceramic tile and adhesives industry, at a national level (British Standards) and at a European and International level (European Norms and ISO Standards).

Mr Newell’s ‘significant contribution’ to the development of standards for the worldwide ceramics industry was recognised in 2014 when he was presented with the BSI’s ‘International Standards Maker’ award.
