Triangle Brick Factory Visit

Our ARC 211 Class had the wonderful opportunity to tour the Triangle Brick Factory ( which is located at 294 King Rd in Moncure, NC. The Merry Oaks Plant is located on the Wake County-Chatham County line. It was a great opportunity for these students that had the chance to visit the site to really see the process behind how a brick is actually made and all the work that goes into it.

Triangle Brick Company started in 1959. The first, original facility that is located on Highway 55 in Durham, opened in 1960. In 1973, Triangle Brick opened a second facility in Carpenter (which is located along the Durham-Wake County line).

The plant that the ARC 211 class visited opened in 1991. In 1993, a second kiln was added to the facility which doubled it’s production capacity.

Triangle Brick Company has been providing brick to residential and commercial projects in over 30 states since 1959. Can you imagine how many bricks that must be over the years? The pictures below show some of the process of how a brick is manufactured.
