Founded in 1890, Glen-Gery Corporation is the largest molded brick and fifth largest brick manufacturer in the U.S. We hold the distinction of an honored and trusted name in brickmaking throughout the building industry. From our corporate headquarters in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, we operate 10 manufacturing facilities throughout the east and Midwest regions of the United States. Our diverse product line of over 300 products includes extruded, machine molded and glazed face brick, brick pavers, and a complete assortment of brick shapes and custom shape units. Our York Plant, in particular, is noted for its beautiful and architecturally-prized, Authentic Handmade brick.

Glen-Gery brick is the premier choice among architects who want outstanding quality FBX brick that meets both innovative design challenges and demanding construction specifications. All Glen-Gery products exceed tough ASTM International requirements for quality, durability and consistency.
Helping to reliably meet the needs of the architectural, commercial and residential communities, we maintain licensed brickwork design professionals on staff to work with architects and builders in reviewing masonry details, designing custom shapes and providing expert advice. We also offer programs and seminars to educate professionals on proper masonry use.
During its century long history, Glen-Gery's growth and success has inspired more than exemplary brickmaking. Glen-Gery differentiates itself from competitors through superior customer service, technical support and timely response to market demands with new products. The implementation and faithful practice of Continuous Improvement assures employee safety, education and training as well as the widespread application of total quality principles. Our CI program has become a vehicle for quick response to market demands and new product introduction.
In early 2002, Glen-Gery completed the modernization of its Hanley Plant, a Pennsylvania facility that specializes in brickmaking for the architectural community. The $18 million dollar project included the construction of a 280 ft. tunnel kiln, robotic setting and packaging equipment, and the installation of a state-of-the-art computer management system to track the entire manufacturing process.
Glen-Gery is an Oldcastle® company.
