Hello Maxibrite Customer!

The website has now closed down. 

More than 60 years ago, the Maxibrite business started production of high quality briquettes from a manufacturing facility based in Llantrisant, South Wales. The production plant, capable of producing up to 70,000 tonnes of briquettes per year,  was officially opened by the late Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in 1982. 

In 2009, Maxibrite became part of Hargreaves Services Group plc. 

Over the years the Maxibrite product range was extended to include coal and wood products, available in more recent years through the website.  Maxibrite offered a range of HETAS and DEFRA approved smokeless fuels for safe use in smoke control areas, including popular products such as Newflame Plus, Maxibrite and Maxiflame.

As the world’s appetite for the burning of solid fuels continues to decline, the difficult decision to cease production at Maxibrite was taken in September 2022. 

In 2023, Loads of Stone became part of Hargreaves Services Group plc, extending the Group’s online presence in the sale of building and decorative aggregate products online. 

Maxibrite would like to thank their valuable customer base for their business over many years, and welcome you to our Loads of Stone website where you’ll find a vast array of decorative aggregates, building aggregates and winter products.
