Crest were delighted to co-sponsor the 61st UFEMAT conference in Montreux, Switzerland 2019.  This stunning location on Lake Geneva in the heart of the Swiss Riviera was the perfect location for this annual event.

Crest have developed strong working relationships with European manufacturer partners, which have been built through mutual respect and trust over many years.  Through our contacts from UFEMAT we have earlier this year entered into a partnership with an Italian brick manufacturer.  With them we have developed a range of bricks which are now being supplied to the UK market, this firmly establishes our commitment to support and work alongside our European business colleagues.

As we expand our extensive portfolio of core building products, customers can choose from our superb range of quality bricks, blocks and Nelskamp roo?ng tiles.  All of our products are designed to complement and enhance any type of build from modern to traditional.  With our exclusive collection of products, we are happy to advise and co-ordinate the supply from speci?cation through to nationwide delivery.

Established over 30 years ago, the team at Crest are passionate and committed, and delight in sharing their knowledge and experience with our customers.  We make customer satisfaction our utmost priority and strive to provide a high level of service.
