Dryvit Systems, Inc., the manufacturer of patented NewBrick and Outsulation, the premier Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) in North America, has opened a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, to accommodate growing demand for NewBrick. The 120,000-square-foot space is equipped with advanced technology to accelerate NewBrick production.
“When we introduced NewBrick, we predicted it would be a real game changer and we’re now seeing proof that the market is embracing NewBrick in a big way,” said Dryvit’s President and CEO Mike Murphy. “Our new state-of-the-art facility and expanded team will allow us to dramatically accelerate production capacity to meet growing demand.”
At 1/12th the weight of traditional clay brick, NewBrick is a lightweight insulated brick product veneer that matches clay brick’s size and appearance but offers state-of-the-art engineering and technology. NewBrick’s lightweight status gives it significant advantages over clay brick, including faster installation time and the ability to eliminate steel and concrete reinforcements required when clay brick is used.
NewBrick is being specified and installed in a range of commercial buildings across the U.S., including hotels, office buildings, medical facilities, college dormitories, sports complexes and mixed-use residential facilities.
