Philadelphia, Pa., -- (February 4, 2022) – Brickworks North America Corporation’s (Brickworks N.A.), wholly owned subsidiary Glen-Gery Corporation (Glen-Gery), has today acquired Capital Brick, located in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
Capital Brick has been a leading distributor of architectural masonry products serving the Washington D.C. metropolitan area since 1981 and has been one of Glen-Gery’s top architectural customers for many years.
According to Mark Ellenor, President, Brickworks N.A., the acquisition is a strategic bolt on to expand on the existing footprint in the Maryland and Virginia markets. Glen-Gery recently launched a new design studio in Baltimore’s Fells Point neighborhood and is currently building a new, modern masonry supply center in Manassas, Virginia.
“The acquisition of Capital Brick supports our strategic investment in the architectural and design community. This long-established and well-known business will help drive sales of our premium architectural products,” says Ellenor.
Since entering the North American market in 2018, Brickworks N.A. has acquired three major brick manufacturers and a second masonry supplier following the acquisition of 17 masonry supply centers in Illinois and Indiana from Southfield Corporation last August. This will expand the network of company-owned distribution locations to 27.
