Jenkins Brick is
an organization of professional men and women in the manufacturing and building materials distribution industry.
We manufacture brick and distribute our own brick as well as brick and associated products manufactured by others.
We operate in five states with a philosophy that we are much more than a brick manufacturer and distributor.
In the late 1800's in Wetumpka, Alabama, Mike Jenkins founded our company.
Mr. Jenkins had lost his leg in a railroad accident and, while recuperating, put his creative talents to work by inventing a bee hive which he subsequently began to manufacture and sell across the South.
Before long, interest in his bee hives had grown so that a new factory for this purpose was needed.
Not being able to obtain brick with which to construct his bee hive factory, Mr. Jenkins produced his own brick.
These were widely admired and he soon found himself manufacturing brick as well as bee hives.
A second brick plant was built in Montgomery in 1903 and at the same time the company's headquarters moved there from Wetumpka.
Jenkins Brick is part of a decreasing number of American owned and operated brick companies in the United States today.
We take pride in the fact that American craftsmanship and ingenuity are alive and well within our organization.
