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.
