Our Manufacturing Process & Facilities


In the early 1900‘s, when we first began in the brick business, brick were fired in beehive kilns. Brick were loaded by hand on horse-drawn wagons. Today, brick factory floors are outfitted with the latest generation of robotic brick setting and packaging equipment.

The science of brick manufacture today reflects the use of sophisticated equipment for clay preparation, brick formation and the firing process. Our kilns are completely computer controlled. For each run of brick, the firing recipe for making your brick is saved, so we can accommodate future additions to your building. Final blending and inspection is done by hand, assuring the human touch.

Advantages of our modern plant design and operation:

  • Enhanced color and product uniformity 
  • Improved safety and working conditions for our employees
  • Automated production tracking
  • Computer controlled recipes for each product code
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions with modern flue and gas scrubbers
  • Greatly reduced fuel consumption for a smaller carbon footprint
