A beautiful private residence using two timeless
Glen-Gery's products: 53-DD and 56-DD (accent brick).

How has the company expanded throughout On average, how many bricks do you bake in day,
the years, and what impact has that had on month or year, locally and nationally, or what's
your manufacturing presence in Berks County? your production volume or measurement?
Throughout the years, including the post-war decades, GlenGery maintained its resiliency during economic fluctuations and
continued to prosper. As a company, we have successfully withstood
the test of time for the last 130 years. Our roots have remained in
Berks County with our Corporate Office located in Wyomissing, a
Masonry Supply Center in Muhlenberg Township and our MidAtlantic Plant which is located in Shoemakersville and is also the
site of our Technical Services team.

Is there any special interaction or opportunities
with local architects, builders and contractors?
Glen-Gery's local sales presence through the Reading Masonry
Supply Center (Muhlenberg Township) services architects, builders,
contractors and the DIY'er. The 2,100-square-foot showroom
serves as a product selection center, retail yard and training facility.
Our newly created Business Development Team offers educational
trainings and installation seminars to the professional design and
trade community.

What regions do you serve with your distribution
channels and do you see any new distribution
opportunities in the near future?
Glen-Gery products are sold nationally through a network of
more than 500 distributors throughout the United States and Canada.
Additional distribution opportunities and channels to market are
always being evaluated.

26 COMMERCE QUARTERLY SUMMER 2019

We have the capacity to produce 1.8 million bricks per day.

You are known as industry innovators with
architectural brick. How many different types
and varieties of brick do you produce, and what
are you doing with research and development
to keep brick as a top-of-mind building material
in design projects?
Glen-Gery has seven main brick product groups (extruded, molded,
handmade, klaycoat, glazed, paving brick and thin brick) that span
across many different colors, sizes and textures. Glen-Gery recently
introduced an international collection of products, which includes
extruded through-the-body colors from Spain, handmade Italian
glass brick as well as extruded and handmade brick from Italy. We
have an extensive research and development department which is
also based here in Berks County, with many new products currently
in development to meet the demands of tomorrow's architectural
and design community.

Anything else you wish to add?
Glen-Gery was acquired by Brickworks Limited in November 2018.
Brickworks is Australia's largest brickmaker and one of the country's
leading building products companies. In Australia, Brickworks has
six Design Studios that they use to position the Brickworks brand as
a style and design leader and drive demand for their products. Under
Brickwork's visions, Glen-Gery will be opening a Design Studio in
Philadelphia later this year.
