New year, new look!

It is Summit Brick Company’s mission to provide quality clay and building products accompanied by great and personalized customer service. With the utmost respect for safety, the environment and the community, Summit looks to maintain growth and be a leader in the industry through the future.

It’s February of 2014 and we want to highlight some of the new colors we have added to our repertoire here at Summit Brick Company this year! Both of our plants strive to make quality clay brick in colors that fit every aspiration of a design. Our resolution this year is the same as always, to be as true to our company mission as possible, but we want to focus this year on adapting with our ever changing design community offering a selection of clay colors that cannot be beat.

Check out a few or our colors offered now at Summit Brick Company!

486WT Palisade

Palisade’s inspiration was the landscape of the “Peach Capital on Colorado”. It’s not the lovely peach orchards and wineries where this great brick got its name, but the Grand Mesa National Forest that was the true inspiration. Palisade makes a great residential brick.

Crimson Shadow is a very modern twist to a traditional feel and look.  Subtle variation and a slight sheen make this a great brick for commercial projects as it offers aesthetic range and depth.  It is also great for residential projects giving the look of a dark beehive-fired unit such those used on the historic homes in the Cherry Creek District of Denver, CO.

Lakewood Plant

Ebony

818 Ebony

Ebony

Sleek and modern would be the best way to describe this very popular brick from SBC’s Lakewood Plant! It is chosen often because of its sheen and sleek monochromatic feel.  An excellent dark color for modern projects like town homes and condos going up in Denver’s newest hot spot, LoHi.

Black Diamond

815 Black Diamond

Black Diamond

Black Diamond is another great contemporary color lending itself to complimenting the mix-medium designs of today’s architectural world.  It is an excellent choice when a luster finish is desired, allowing the other finishes to create a dynamic look!

We are proud of our ability to offer a vast array of colors, new and old! Please visit our site to see a full list of what we offer.

112 Years and Counting…

Summit Brick Company is Colorado’s only family owned and operated clay brick manufacturer, founded in 1902 by my great grandfather Joseph C. Welte.  This upcoming year, Summit Brick will become 112 years old.  We are a dying breed nationwide as multinational conglomerates are buying up family owned brick companies.  Being right in the middle of the holiday season, I am reminded about the many people at Summit Brick that I am grateful to call my family.  Many of them have been working side by side with my grandpa, dad and uncle for the past 35 years and are now working with the fourth generation (myself and my three brothers Matt, Paul and Jimmy).  We are still dedicated to bringing customers knowledgeable and friendly service along with a great product.  I had the privilege to be able to work with Jim Clemans before his retirement and learned quite a bit from him on our cross country trips.  I remember to this day how much he loved the people he worked with and his customers.  Jim taught me that this company is about the people.  It is about relationships.  It is about you.  You are what make Summit Brick Company successful!  I want to thank all of you and let you know that we plan to make it another 112 years!

Happy Holidays!
