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.

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!
