York Building Products Plans New Block Plant in Frederick

York, PA 9/29/17 – York Building Products (YBP) announces its plans to construct a new block manufacturing plant on Buckeystown Pike in Frederick, MD.

YBP has sold its existing location on Urbana Pike in a commercial shopping district, and plans to move the existing plant equipment to the new 25,000 SF facility away from existing retail businesses. While much of the existing plant equipment will be moved, the Buckeystown Pike facility will feature new state-of-the-art batching equipment, allowing for better controlled and more consistent products. The plant’s production capacity will remain the same initially; however, yard storage will be expanded by 30%. The new location will also allow for better traffic flow and less congestion for shipping.

Full-online production is projected for mid-February. The products produced at the new plant will continue to be primarily standard concrete masonry units and colored segmental retaining wall block.

Perryville Elementary School tours Belvedere Sand & Gravel Plant

York Building Products recently donated 3 tons of 2-4” cobbles to Perryville Elementary School. Third grade students painted several hundred and used both the painted and unpainted cobbles to create 750’ of border around the school’s new gardens. The students were also able to tour the company’s Belvedere sand & gravel plant in Port Deposit, Maryland, where they learned about how the rock deposits were formed millions of years ago, the plant’s production process and the recycling of its wash water. The tour ended with driving the buses onto the plant’s truck scale and having the students guess how much they weighed.
