Five generations later, Lambs is still a family-owned business with a focus on providing quality products to the building industry. The fourth generation Group Chairman, Robin Lamb, who joined the company in 1959, worked his way through accounts, roofing and sales departments, before becoming Sales Director, then Managing Director, before assuming his current position. Robin's son James is also on the Board and has been an active non-executive director since 2000.
In 2001, Jonathan Lamb became Sales Director, with his father, Robert, taking over the role as Managing Director.
During this period, the brick industry continued to evolve and Lambs’ success continued, supplying some of the most iconic buildings in the UK.
Under Jonathan's guidance he continued to build on Lambs reputation for high quality and for providing authentic hand-made products. From being appointed to provide thousands of gauged squares to Fortnum & Mason in London to providing replacement arches at Kensington Palace, Lambs continue to be involved with some of the UK’s most historic buildings whilst at the same time continuing to service our day to day clients.
Jonathan became increasingly involved in other areas of the group’s business activities and in 2015 he became Development Director of WT Lamb Holdings handing the role of Sales Director to James Mitchell, who has worked for the company for over 30 years.
Lambs continue to work with some of the most respected architects and contractors in England, bringing a wealth of experience and providing customers with expertise and re-assurance from the design stage through to works on site.
Our activities are not just limited to the UK, in recent years, Lambs have exported bricks and arches to various projects in the USA and Dubai, including The Knickerbocker Club chimneys in New York and a new build apartment block in Brooklyn.
Our quality materials have been used by some of Britain's leading architects and craftsmen in these award-winning buildings. From small modern houses to historic country homes, housing developments to public buildings.
