The cornerstones of the company’s building materials division are Morin Brick and Vermont Brick. Rooted in New England tradition, the companies have over 170 years of combined experience producing a variety of extruded brick and authentic molded waterstruck brick. These classic New England style bricks have been used in countless projects including Bates, Colby, Bowdoin, Harvard, Dartmouth, Columbia, Brown, and Boston Colleges. Vermont Brick’s authentic waterstruck bricks were selected for This Old House’s 25th anniversary restoration project of the Jonathan Bradford Heald farmhouse. In 2012, Morin Brick will celebrate its 100th year in business.
The acquisition of Vermont Natural Colored Stone in 2010 marked another strategic step towards creating a full-service real estate, construction and building materials firm. Vermont Natural Colored Stone is home to one of the most spectacular slate quarries in the United States, boasting six indigenous colors, an extreme rarity for any one quarry.
