We have a passion for surfaces.


ALUSID are a spin out company from the University of Central Lancashire. The company was born from a research project led by Professor David Binns and Dr Alasdair Bremner that was originally funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).

We work with local company Recycling Lives, a Queens award winning company to make unique products and surfaces for interiors and exteriors from recycled materials including glass ceramic and other mineral additives, none of our products are less than 96% recycled and can be recycled themselves when they come to end of their lives.

Our unique products are between 98%-100% recycled materials, we can control the colour tone and texture of the material to create a genuine alternative to imported natural stone products. 

 The low environmental impact production process, uses no chemicals or resin binders and the manufacturing process produces zero waste, this means that while we hope that our products will be used and enjoyed for years and decades to come, when our products come to the end of their useful life they themselves can be recycled within our process. 

ALUSID aims is to be a leader in the supply of premium engineered sustainable architectural materials and remain at the forefront of this growing sector through continual R&D to improve the material properties along with the development of new products and applications for the catalogue of materials already developed.
