BRIKSTON MAINTAINS GROWTH IN TIMES OF CRISIS
Brikston Construction Solutions was founded 50 years ago in Iasi, Romania, and developed its business in the construction materials market, specialising in clay bricks and blocks. From 1967 (the year of its foundation) to 2010, the company underwent a number of transformations and plant upgrades with the aim of increasing production capacity and improving the aesthetic and technical characteristics of its products, including compressive strength and heat conductivity.
The main areas of technological improvement currently include an increase in efficiency of production lines and the management of raw materials and extruder dies, which have been supplied for more than 10 years by the Italian firm Tecnofiliere. Iulian Mangalagiu, Brikston’s CEO and one of the people who have made the biggest contribution to its growth, says: “Tecnofiliere is the partner that has proved itself most capable of meeting the high standards we have set ourselves and provides continuous support. Their ability to develop new customised extrusion solutions with ever higher performance and strength allows us to pursue continuous innovation, a crucial factor for remaining competitive in the market”.
