  The Right Brick for The Community

The architects who designed the Mobile County Government Center Annex knew they wanted velour texture brick for the exterior of the complex. But choosing the right brick color was essential in helping the building blend in with the rest of the downtown area. They chose Crimson Light Velour modulars from Carolina Ceramics Brick Company. Local distributor Riley-Stuart Supply procured the brick for the project. “Carolina Ceramics has been providing us with high-quality architectural brick, and exceptional service, for over ten years,” said Law Stuart of Riley-Stuart Supply.

“Their attention to detail and craftsmanship enables them to consistently surpass industry standards. Through this commitment to excellence, Carolina Ceramics enables us to provide our customers with the best products available, supported by the most professional and efficient service in the industry. This commitment to quality is exemplified on the Mobile County Government Center Annex project. By providing a great looking, high-quality brick in a timely fashion, we were able to meet and surpass the expectations of our valued customer, Ben Radcliff Contractor. Riley-Stuart Supply is certainly proud to have had Carolina Ceramics as a partner on this project,” Stuart said.

Located in Columbia, South Carolina, Carolina Ceramics uses the unique sand and clay in the area to create a wide array of unrivaled, rich, through-the-body brick colors in its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. The company began in 1939 with two beehive kilns and produced eight million bricks per year. Today, Carolina Ceramics uses high tech index-fired kilns to produce over 80 million bricks annually. Flexible packaging capabilities allow Carolina Ceramics to blend multiple colors together and its quality control and consistent grading enables Carolina Ceramics Brick Company to surpass customer expectations.
