Pennine Stone achieves GRCA Approved Manufacturer status Pennine Stone, the UK’s leading supplier of cast stone to the house building and contracting sectors, has achieved Approved Manufacturer status from the Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete Association (GRCA) following a rigorous audit process.

“We are delighted to be one of only four UK manufacturers to have achieved GRCA Approved Manufacturer status – a certification required by the NHBC for GRC products. Pennine can now provide a complete range of products and solutions to commercial builders and architects including BBA approved TecCast (dry cast) and high specification TecStone (wet cast) as well as TecLite fibre reinforced cement and GRC.”
Ideal for commercial projects as well as housebuilders, Pennine Stone’s GRC cladding panels have recently been installed at the new Hilton Garden Inn, Luton. Part of the international Haddonstone Group of companies, Pennine Stone is based at the company’s state-of-the-art production facility near Doncaster.
TecCast is a Semi - Dry product which uses a combination of traditional materials and technologically innovative admixtures to produce stone which is without equal.
TecLite uses a fibre-reinforced mix to produce light weight products which look and behave exactly like traditional cast stone.
WetCast is a traditional wet mix material which is used to produce dense heavy duty, extremely robust products, ranging in size from small decorative items such as cills, heads and copings right up to large cornices, beams, columns and porticos.
