Wienerberger Mix & Match your Load

Wienerberger, the UK’s leading supplier of wall, roof and landscaping solutions, has announced the launch of Load Builder, an innovative new service designed to help builders’ merchants manage their brick stock and storage space with a quick and easy to use online tool.

Load Builder offers Wienerberger’s merchant customers the opportunity to create a bespoke load by mixing and matching products from a wide selection of facing bricks, engineering bricks and special shaped bricks to fit their requirements. Merchants are able to select smaller quantities of each product, allowing them to order a wider range of product in more manageable loads to suit their yard capacity.

Load Builder users simply select one of the hubs from Wienerberger’s national network and build their own custom load from the options available. The stock at each hub has been chosen based on local market requirements and includes bricks manufactured at different locations, not just the nearest factory, so a variety of products are available to customers. This means that a mixed-load delivery can be transported from one location in a single vehicle, helping with efficiency, shortening lead times and reducing its carbon footprint.

By using Load Builder, merchants benefit from greater flexibility when ordering stock, the opportunity to stock a wider variety of bricks and the ability to have better control over their costs. This tool prevents merchants from having to purchase more stock than they require, which can take up valuable yard space and increase capital costs. This also gives merchants the chance to experiment with different products by ordering them in smaller quantities.

With a solution that is as simple as shopping online, Load Builder makes the brick ordering process even easier for merchants and reflects Wienerberger’s company-wide commitment to driving performance through technology. Users build their mixed load online, enter some details and await a prompt follow up quote from Wienerberger’s customer services team.

Richard Brown, Category Marketing Manager for Wall products at Wienerberger, commented:
“We developed Load Builder to help our merchant customers tackle the three big issues they face – product offering, space restrictions and cost control. Our service enables merchants to offer a wider variety of bricks, whilst keeping their costs to a minimum and generating the best return on their yard space. We’re really excited about the launch of Load Builder and look forward to hearing feedback from our customers.”
