“We’re serious about providing the best possible quality of products and service to our customers in the markets we serve,” says Sam Hoehner, manager of the Louisville location of Lee Brick & Block, currently located on Poplar Level Road. Sam shares the company’s feelings that have led to the current investment under way on Old Henry Road in eastern Louisville.
Located just off the Gene Snyder Freeway, a mile north of the Middletown exit, Lee Brick & Block will become neighbors to Rogers Group, a raw material supplier of crushed limestone. A new office and showroom coupled with a state-of-the-art block plant are taking shape and are on track to be occupied and running by early 2007.
The facility upgrade and relocation are one way that Lee Brick & Block is showing the Louisville masonry market that they care about the industry and the quality of product that is being supplied.
“Once everything is underway, we’ll have a brand new plant capable of many new abilities which will include a cutting-edge curing and color system,” Hoehner adds. “We appreciate the customers who have been loyal to us and want them to know that we’re making this investment not only because it’s the right move for Lee Brick & Block, but also because it’s the best thing for our customers and the future of their success.”
Lee Brick & Block has been serving the Kentucky masonry market since 1963, when they operated out of their lone Frankfort office. Since that time, the company has expanded into several other cities including Hopkinsville, Central City, Bowling Green, Owensboro, Lexington, Bardstown, Louisville, Shelbyville, and Glasgow. “We cover every inch of the Kentucky market from Paducah to Pikeville,” says Hoehner. “We have also expanded our operations into middle Tennessee, Atlanta, and Baton Rouge”.
In addition to concrete block, Lee Brick & Block also manufactures Anchor and Keystone retaining wall products, Mountain Stone, and concrete brick. As distributors for a variety of clay brick manufacturers, Lee Brick & Block is a one-stop shop for all masonry needs. “We have the ability to provide a wide range of products from concrete block, manufactured stone, clay brick, retaining wall and landscaping products, to the mortar, cleaners, sealers, wire, and every other accessory necessary to complete the job.”
“Another reason that Lee Brick & Block is an asset to the masonry industry is its support and involvement as a leader in many of the trade groups and associations that promote the use of our products. Lee has several representatives on National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) committees, as well as brick industry committees and related building code groups. We not only financially support these groups, but we actively participate in the meetings and decisions to help grow our industry and allow our contractor and builder customers to continue growing their businesses.”
As you can tell, Lee Brick & Block is serious about its role in the masonry market. “We’re looking forward to continuing to help the Louisville market grow one building or home at a time, and we’re excited about the new facility with which to do that from,” Hoehner adds. “We hope that the community will be able to stop by and see us once we make the move and give us the opportunity to help them with their next project.”
