2015 MCACP Cram Session

On November 11, in conjunction with the Masonry Contractors Association of Central PA, York Building Products hosted the annual Masonry Cram Session for local engineers and specifiers to address current masonry practices.

ACE Mentor Program

In an effort to encourage young men and women to consider a career in masonry, York Building Products hosted an informational session for the ACE Mentor Program on Tuesday, November 10, from 4 to 6 p.m. at our Loucks Mill Road, York, PA, masonry plant. The ACE Mentor Program’s mission is to engage, excite and enlighten high school students to pursue careers in the integrated construction industry through mentoring.

During this hands-on session, Doug Sheaffer of YBP acquainted students with what is involved in a masonry career, including skills needed, work environment and potential earnings. Seasoned masons were also available to give demonstrations and to share first-hand experience stories with the students.

YBP has partnered with ACE in this invaluable program for the last 7 years. As a testament to the program’s success, there has been an increase in students entering the masonry program at York County School of Technology over the last several years.
