Oldcastle expands block manufacturing plant

Updated Feb 19, 2013

Oldcastle Architectural’s Amcor Utah block masonry plant completed a 29,000-square-foot expansion. This plant, located in North Salt Lake, Utah, more than doubled its production capacity for manufacturing pavers.

As the first manufacturing facility owned by parent company CRH in the United States, Amcor has been supplying a full line of Oldcastle architectural block and retaining walls for Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Nevada and Montana since 1978. The expansion will allow the plant to add Oldcastle’s Belgard Hardscapes paver lines to their product offerings and increase overall production capabilities.

“Production capacity has increased from 4 million 8-inch blocks per year to 11 million 8-inch blocks,” says Paul Kamnikar, vice president and general manager of Amcor, “which represents the first expansion of capacity and capability at Amcor since its purchase in 1978.”

The facility has increased in overall size from 39,000 to 68,000 square feet and will be adding four to six employees during the next six months. For information on the company, visit oldcastleapg.com.
