How to NEVER fear time
That title may seem slightly ominous for a news article from a Brick and Paver manufacturer! The reason for the title is largely due to a quote we recently stumbled across:
“Things of quality have no fear of time”
What does it mean? This quote in relation to products means that there is always a place in the market for things which are the highest quality, regardless of trends, fads and the latest ‘hot’ thing.
Take a moment to think about it. What ‘old’ things do you have which still hold value to you today (either monetary or personal)..?
When people go a long way above and beyond to make sure what they produce is the absolute best; when they cut no corners, spare no expense, innovate, experiment, try and try and try and never ever give up… That is when something brilliant emerges which can stand the test of time..
Here’s some examples:
What’s the difference between a classic car and an old bomb? QUALITY.
What’s the difference between a beautiful piece of antique furniture and a cheap chair which breaks within a couple of months? QUALITY.
A wrist-watch handed down through 3 generations and a $3 knock-off you bought on holiday? QUALITY.
We’re proud to be South Australia’s leading brick maker for over 120 years and also 100% South Australian Family owned.
Builders and architects have long recognised the quality and reliability that Littlehampton represents. Combine that the extensive range of colours and textures that only kiln fired clay can provide and you’re really on a winner!
It comes with little surprise then, that more and more councils around South Australia are also calling upon us for long term solutions in lieu of cement and concrete based products which just simply don’t last as well. In particular our range of SmartPave Permeable paving for ecologically sensitive areas like around trees and carparks.
Trade Sales Representative Wayne Hunter says “With Councils becoming more environmentally responsible and proud about the way their townships look, Littlehampton clay pavers are the obvious choice”
“Our clay pavers have proven they stand the test of time due to our traditional manufacturing processes, such as high 1200c kiln firing which ensures the colour is burnt into the clays through the entire brick and will never fade.”
“And that’s not where the traditional methods end either! Every single brick and paver is hand-sorted, and inspected meaning that there can often be a 10-30% reduction in wastage on site. Products are checked for colour, size consistency, chips, cracks, fractures and finish before they even make it to the pallet.”
A quality control process which truly is SECOND TO NONE.
In recent years, Littlehampton have supplied pavers to Walkerville Council, City of Onkaparinga, Northern Areas, the Adelaide Hills Council, Port Adelaide and Enfield and the flinders Ranges to name but a few, with more and more placing orders every month! Let’s also not forget that DisneyLand Shanghai also chose Littlehampton Pavers for their new park!
Needless to say, here at Littlehampton Brick Co; we have no fear of time.
We’d love to hear from you!
