Persimmon Plc is one of the UK’s leading housebuilders.
We are a team of over 5,000 people focused on building good quality homes for our customers at a range of price points across the UK.
We aim to create sustainable value for the benefit of all our stakeholders through the housing cycle, with an ambition of building right, first time, every time.
Persimmon provides homes for all by building a wide range of good quality homes in places where people want to live and work. In 2020 the Group’s private average selling price of £250,897 was c.17% below the UK national average* and approximately 50% of our private completions were to first time buyers.
To support our construction operations we continue to invest in our off-site manufacturing capability. Brickworks, our brick manufacturing factory, has the capacity to produce c.80m bricks a year, which approximates to two thirds of the Group’s brick requirements. Additionally, the Group has constructed its own roof tile manufacturing facility, Tileworks, which commenced deliveries to sites in early 2020. Finally, the Group’s Space4 business produces timber frames, highly insulated wall panels and roof cassettes as a ‘fabric first’ solution to the construction of new homes.
We have also established FibreNest, the Group's own ultrafast, full fibre to the home, broadband service which aims to ensure all our customers are connected to the internet from moving in day onwards.
