Cembrit - History Timeline


Dansk Eternit interests in the UK

Cembrit Holding (former Dansk Eternit Holding) has for a long time operated successfully in the UK selling fibre cement slates to the buoyant UK construction market. In 1986 Dansk Eternit secured its UK position by acquiring its main outlet B.M. Fabrications. The company was restyled Cembrit Building Products Ltd.

During the period 1988-92 Cembrit Building Products portfolio was successfully expanded to include Dansk Eternit’s popular cladding, building board and corrugated sheet products.

The best slates from around the world

The pioneering introduction of Canadian natural slates in 1997 meant that the business was able to offer slates of a quality and appearance to match any roof slate on the UK market. This innovation signified the worldwide reach of the business’s procurement skills and has been supplemented by the introduction of top quality natural slates from newly emerging sources such as Brazil and India.

One name - one future

Continued emphasis on expertise in the field of slating has confirmed Cembrit’s position as the UK’s slate specialist. This has enabled the business to make strong relationships with quarries and suppliers around the world giving Cembrit access to the best natural slate available. Focus on exceptional service to the roofing trade has enhanced Cembrit’s reputation as the easiest slate supplier to deal with, contributing to the smooth running of every project incorporating Cembrit slates.
