MCACP See How It’s Made Tour Recap

York Building Products hosted the Masonry Contractors Association of Central Pennsylvania (MCACP)’s first annual plant tour series called “See How It’s Made.” Thirty-nine attendees toured York Building Products’ Middletown facility. Built in 1975 near Harrisburg, this plant produces both grey and architectural concrete masonry block. The purpose of this and future MCACP See How It’s Made events is to show architects, engineers and designers not only how concrete block products are made, but the various shapes, sizes and textures available.

BAC, Local 5 representatives built five sample panels for viewing. Jack Kennedy of York Building Products described the various products used to construct these panels and urged architects to utilize sample panels for product and customer approval.

MCACP will return to York Building Products’ corporate office on October 19 for an educational seminar featuring four speakers and displays.
