Huws Gray buys Caradale brick stock

ANGLESEY: Huws Gray has bought the brick stock of Caradale Traditional Brick from the administrators.
Managing director Terry Owen said that it was a "strategic investment decision which we hope will make us stronger".
Huws Gray will hold stocks of the Caradale bricks at its Warrington and Queensferry depots.
Caradale is claimed to be unique in the traditional brick-making sector in that it uses shale clays. Although more difficult to work, they are said to make a harder, more durable brick suitable for the extremes of British weather.
