Brickworks North America, the recently established parent company of clay masonry mainstay Glen-Gery Corp., has closed on Iowa-based Sioux City Brick, a family-owned operator since 1913. The $32 million transaction brings three production lines across two plants, with capacity upward of 160 million brick, plus five retail distribution outlets and exclusive U.S. distribution rights to the Feldhaus thin brick system.

“The Sioux City product line is a perfect fit and the ideal ‘bolt-on’ opportunity to our 2018 acquisition of Glen-Gery—a company that offers the most diverse portfolio of brick colors, sizes and textures for commercial and residential applications in the U.S.,” says Brickworks N.A. President Mark Ellenor. A strong Midwest geographic presence, modern plants, and proud employee culture made Sioux City Brick an attractive candidate, he adds.
