That’s what Pueblo, Colo.-based Summit Brick Company has done for its industrial, commercial and residential customers since 1902.
Summit Brick, the only family-owned brick company in business in Colorado, owns its own clay mines and production facilities throughout the state. It’s a flexible manufacturer capable of producing more than 60 different styles of brick in 130 different colors.
