Meridian Brick has joined the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance as a supporting member.
Meridian Brick, formally known as Boral Bricks, just completed a joint venture with Forterra Brick to form the largest brick manufacture in North America. The joint venture will bring together Boral’s US clay brick operations, distribution network, Forterra’s clay brick, and concrete brick businesses in the USA and Canada. The combined business will have a capacity to produce over 2.6 billion standard bricks per year, and will include 27 clay brick manufacturing plants, 2 concrete brick plants and 41 building products distribution centers.
The Meridian Brick, Muskogee Plant, currently employees 60 team members. We are capable of producing 9 million brick per month and offer 14 different colors and styles. The Muskogee operation has been in business for over 33 years and mines all its material on a 120-acre site located directly behind the plant. The future for the Muskogee plant is very bright, with over 1.5 million in capital improvements, an upswing in new housing starts and an outstanding sales force; we are excited to see what 2017 holds for the new Meridian Brick company.
