About Yorkshire's Wall Tie Specialist, Brick-Tie
Brick-Tie - the phenomenal wall tie specialist
Our story starts in 1986, when Stuart Hindle and his two sons Stuart & Bryan discovered that wall tie corrosion was a ticking bomb in Yorkshire’s housing and, that an entire new industry would spring out of it.
So, in the summer of that year, company number 2046775 was incorporated by Stuart and his wife June, under the name Brick-Tie Services limited. Madonna was in the charts with ‘Papa Don’t Preach’ and, The ‘Iron Lady’ herself, Margaret Thatcher, was prime minister.
So from the start Brick-Tie were a family Business. Only Bryan remains now, Dad & June having retired in 1991 and young Stuart is retired now too. However, Bryan and his wife Julie still head the company and take great pride in it and especially the team who represent and sustain it.
Right from the start Bryan wanted to make sure that Brick-Tie would be the best in this ‘new’ field. The best; not just at wall tie replacement (which we are), but also the best employer for our employees, best customer to our suppliers and best for customer service too.
It’s taken many years to realise Bryan’s goals and we’ve had our setbacks along the way, working through a few recessions and the recent pandemic. But with the help of our wonderful employees, suppliers and customers, who have rewarded our efforts, we have succeeded in all areas.
Business can sometimes have a dirty name, what with media coverage about Director’s huge bonuses, as hard working staff struggle for a living; zero hours contracts; minimum wages and tax avoidance. That’s not Brick-Tie. Our business isn’t built on exploitation, it’s built with support and cooperation; rewarding effort; training our people; leading by example; looking after everyone as best we can and respecting each other.
That’s why we have such a low staff turnover and such happy and helpful people to serve you.
Of course we make a profit. An honest profit for a job done well. This means we can pay good wages, offer excellent benefits, pay our suppliers on time and, best of all, give customers 100% effort. We pay our taxes too, knowing that all of us need the NHS, Police, Fire service and the infrastructure, which makes modern life bearable.
Does this mean our business is too small to look after your project? No – we have a healthy balance sheet, robust health and safety compliance, sufficient resources and equipment to deliver all the work we tender for. We carry first class insurance too, to protect our staff and our clients, in the event of a mistake or accident.
