Illbruck marks its Platinum year with a green focus for specifiers in the built environment

Laura Smith / 06 October 2022

In this Platinum Jubilee year, illbruck is celebrating its own 70th anniversary milestone event.

Recognised by building professionals and the construction industry across the UK and internationally, illbruck’s sealing and bonding products for windows, façades, interiors and exteriors are the premium choice for the sector.

The brand’s time-proven and tested history - built-up over the decades since its inception in 1952 - combined with a pioneering approach that focuses on innovation and sustainability, has ensured it has retained its pole position in the marketplace over the long term.    

A key driver in its success is the high quality of its products, as well as the advice, training and services provided by the brand’s technical and commercial teams, with a focus on best-in-class performance in areas including application technique, ease of installation and respect for health and safety.

Brand highlights include the development of solutions promoting energy savings, acoustic and thermal insulation, as well as air quality in buildings, all adapted to each installation and construction configuration to address the pressing need for greener buildings.

illbruck is one of Tremco Construction Product Group UK’s (CPG UK) family of brands, which cater for the complete building envelope under a single-source solution.

Alistair Inglis, who leads the brand’s activities nationally as CPG UK’s Sales Director of the Sealing, Bonding and Insulation Division, is also celebrating a landmark event this year, reaching 21 years working with the company.

He said: “I feel very proud and privileged to be involved with the growth of our division since I joined the business in 2001.

“My reasons for joining the business centred around the fact that the products manufactured were first class, and the values and culture of the business aligned with my own.

“I am a big believer of ‘gut feeling’ and joining what is now known today as CPG, was a great choice. I was impressed from day one and continue to be so with the people within the business and their passion for the products we sold and for our customer service.

“Now in the role of Sales Director, the day-to-day job remains the same in the key areas, ensuring that we have the excellent products that meet market needs and that we have a passionate team who are empowered to make decisions and give excellent customer service.

“As a 24-strong team, we have grown our business and our customer base by living our company values and by ensuring that our customers remain at the heart of all our decisions.

“Our brands have also grown, with the addition of Nudura & Dryvit joining illbruck within our Sealing, Bonding, and Insulation Division.

“Our customers also benefit from a huge range of products from our other Tremco CPG brands of TREMCO, Flowcrete, & Nullifire

“This gives our customers the ultimate choice of products and gives solutions for all six sides of the building.

“Looking to the future, the best is still to come. We have new products and services coming that are at the forefront of technology and innovation, and the passion and commitment from our people within the business is exceptional.

“This approach ensures we are well-placed to continue to serve our clients in the years and decades ahead, as we continue to focus on delivering solutions to support sustainability in the built environment.”
