Sustainable Porous Paving Solutions.
It really is that simple.
KBI UK was established in 2010 to supply the UK market with the class-leading Flexipave surfacing that had been developed by KBI USA.
The company has since grown into a significant commercial operation, with a nationwide network of sales staff and installers. As well as expanding our network of personnel, KBI has developed a portfolio of products to compliment our core Flexipave system.
Flexistone was developed in 2012 to offer our clients the option of creating a porous surface that could be used by vehicles. More recently, our Flexifix, Flexiglo & Flexiglass products have been brought to market following extensive periods of R&D.
In summer 2020 - at the height of the global pandemic - KBI committed to a full relocation of its business from Halifax in West Yorkshire to purpose built premises in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. The new location gave the company improved access to the UK's motorway network, as well as modern warehousing and offices.
The company continues to develop, with four new strategic installers partners coming on board in early 2021 to help satisfy the current demand for our sustainable porous paving solutions.
Our surfacing systems are specified by a multitude of different client types and installed into numerous different locations for many different applications. Our clients include major housing developers, local authorities, engineering companies, utilities companies, family attraction operators, FM service providers, architects and golf courses.
The sustainability aspect of our Flexipave surfacing has always been at the heart of our business. By using recycled vehicle tyres as one of its base components, Flexipave is contributing to local and national carbon reduction targets. Several of our larger projects have used the equivalent of over 15,000 tyres, which has contributed to several hundred thousand kilograms of CO2 saved when compared to those same tyres being burned.
Our focus on sustainability prompted the creation of our Green Partnership programme, a scheme that recognises clients who use Flexipave to contribute to sustainable practices. To find out more, visit our dedicated Green Partnership page.
