York Building Products Lends a Hand to Lancaster General Hospital

Hearing Lancaster General was in dire need of N95 masks, the team at our New Holland block plant searched through our inventory, and were fortunate enough to locate 200 masks that we could donate.

Thank you Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health and all of the healthcare workers on the front lines battling this pandemic. You are putting yourselves at risk to keep us and our loved ones safe. We are truly grateful.

It was a beautiful day for an Open House.

We held an Open House on Thursday, July 25th, to share our new Frederick, MD, block production facility with our customers. Part of the day’s events included plant tours and demonstrations of our new 32” block unit being laid using the Mule construction robotic tool. Great food from Blue’s BBQ and music was enjoyed throughout the day. Congratulations to Joe from Frederick Brick Works who won our i-Pad raffle!

Thanks again to all of our customers who attended and shared the day with us!
