Marion Ceramics Partners with Thin Brick Installation Experts Ambrico

Summary: Ambrico has announced a new partnership with Marion Ceramics.  Specializing in highly durable and long lasting thin brick products, Marion Ceramics is a welcome addition to the Ambrico’s product offerings.

Warren, Michigan, March 27, 2011 – American Brick Company (Ambrico) is excited to announce a new business partnership with Marion Ceramics.  This latest partnership brings the company’s popular Vee Brick product line to Ambrico.  Following the growing trend of increased use of thin brick in both traditional ceramic wall tile installations and other types of wall panel systems, Vee Brick products can provide significant cost savings over traditional brick.  With panels that are made indoors at the Marion Ceramics plant, builders can perform thin brick installations faster and eliminate scaffolding costs, dramatically reducing the final cost of the project.

As noted by Ambrico, the Marion Ceramics thin brick product line is also highly durable and is an environmentally friendly solution for builders and contractors.   As “green” building continues to grow in popularity in both design and building materials, the Vee Brick line offers a wonderful option for those looking for an alternative to traditional clay brick.

In business since 1885 in South Carolina, Marion Ceramics was long known for producing colorful bricks from clay deposits around the company’s property.  When fired, the clay burns to red, terra cotta and even blue (at the highest temperatures).  When the company first started, the blue coloring was very unique in the industry and even led to the area around the plant being known as “Blue Brick”.

Marion Ceramics continues to utilize its ingenuity and creativity through the manufacturing of the Vee Brick system.  The product successfully replicates the rich colors and depth found with traditional brick, and can last for years longer than clay bricks.  Thanks to the company’s partnership with Ambrico, builders, contractors and do-it-yourselfers can now see the latest thin brick products from Marion Ceramics easily at the Ambrico product showroom.  Located in Warren, the Ambrico showroom is fully staffed with knowledgeable salespeople who are prepared to offer advice and make recommendations based on your needs.  The latest addition of Marion Ceramics makes it easy for Ambrico customers to see the different varieties of both thin brick and traditional clay brick products that the company specializes in.

Headquartered in Warren, Michigan, Ambrico includes a showroom, brickyard and manufacturing facility.  The company offers free estimates and information for builders and contractors interested in learning more about brick veneer installation, and also maintains a large selection of brick veneer samples to view in the state-of-the –art Ambrico showroom.   For more information, please visit
