Cpi Euromix ‘delighted’ to Support Trowel-blazing Bricklaying Contest

Dry mortar specialist CPI EuroMix is among the headline sponsors of Super Trowel – the annual contest to find the UK’s fastest bricklayer.

Super Trowel is the ultimate bricklaying competition; a trowel-blazing exhibition of speed, skill and professionalism. This year’s contest has seen 12 finalists emerge from two regional heats featuring 30 entrants. The triumphant dozen will take-up trowels for a final showdown at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes on August 8th to find an overall winner.

Charlie Collison from Colchester took top prize in last year’s contest. During an outstanding performance he laid an incredible 607 bricks in just 60 minutes. This saw him crowned the UK’s Fastest Bricklayer, earning him £4,500 in prize money.

The 12 finalists in this year’s event are due to visit CPI on July 12th for a tour of its Bilston manufacturing plant. 

Stuart Russell, UK Commercial Manager, at CPI Euromix explained why the company was keen to support this standout industry event: “Super Trowel is a lot of fun but it’s also a great showcase for the UK bricklaying industry. Bricklaying is a traditional skill which is crying out for more young people to turn their hands to and help fulfil the country’s building needs. Initiatives such as Super Trowel can assist with that. Hence, this is an event that we are more than happy to support. We thank Super Trowel’s organisers for instigating such initiatives, as they help establish relationships across the building supply chain”.

As well as showcasing the fast and furious skills of the country’s best bricklayers, the Super Trowel final will also host a bustling marketplace featuring more than 60 exhibitors. For visitors, this is an exclusive opportunity to engage with well-known industry brands, and experience masonry-based products and services that are advancing the bricklaying industry.
