Brickworks North America subsidiary Glen-Gery Corp. has acquired one its top architectural customers: Upper Marlboro, Md.-based Capital Brick, a leading masonry products distributor serving the Washington D.C. metropolitan area since 1981. The bolt-on deal expands Glen-Gery’s Maryland and Virginia footprint, dovetails the recent opening of a design studio in Baltimore’s Fells Point neighborhood, and coincides with the building of a Manassas, Va. masonry supply center.
“The acquisition of Capital Brick supports our strategic investment in the architectural and design community,” says Brickworks N.A. President Mark Ellenor. “This long-established and well-known business will help drive sales of our premium architectural products.”
Since entering the North American market in 2018, Australia’s Brickworks Ltd. has acquired three major producers, along with 17 Illinois and Indiana masonry supply centers in a 2021 deal with Southfield Corp. Capital Brick expands the producer’s North American network of integrated distribution locations to 27.
