Brickworks North America Corp., the Pennsylvania-based parent company of brick and stone manufacturer Glen-Gery Corp., announced Friday that it has acquired Sioux City Brick for $32 million. Sioux City Brick will become a premium brand of Glen-Gery. Sioux City Brick is a family-owned and -operated company that was founded in 1913, with its leadership spanning four generations.

The company has 200 employees in Sioux City. “The Sioux City product line is a perfect fit and the ideal ‘bolt-on’ opportunity to our 2018 acquisition of Glen-Gery,” said Mark Ellenor, Brickworks N.A.’s president. Brickworks N.A. is the North American operation of Brickworks Ltd., Australia’s largest brickmaker.
