A little bit about us

Shaw Brick

Founded in 1861, Shaw Brick is a leading manufacturer, distributor and retailer of high-quality clay brick, concrete block and natural stone products for the landscaping and building sectors in Atlantic Canada. Shaw Brick has continued to refine and grow its selection of products and is continually increasing their distribution of other products to include wall coverings such as metal, ceramic and fiber cement as examples.

The original clay brick we began manufacturing in Lantz, Nova Scotia 160 years ago were the building blocks of a company that would go on to become a local household name and change the landscape of Atlantic Canada. Today, Shaw Brick continues to manufacture brick, and over the years has added new products to enhance the beauty of homes, yards, and entire communities with high quality, sustainable, locally made and affordable products.
