Belden Brick Company

The Belden Brick Company traces its roots to the Diebold Fire Brick Company organized in Canton, Ohio in 1885 by Henry S. Belden and four associates. It is currently managed by the fourth generation of the Belden family. The Belden Brick Company owns and operates six plants in Tuscarawas County, Ohio, employs approximately 500 people, and has an annual production capacity of nearly 207 million standard brick equivalent. Plant 3 and one line at Plant 8 produce soft mud (machine-molded) brick while the other facilities all produce extruded brick products. In addition, Belden Brick wholly owns Redland Brick, comprised of five active manufacturing facilities in four states, as well as the Tubar/Eureka Industrial Group, maker of “BrickScapes” outdoor living products.

In the U.S. brick industry, The Belden Brick Company is the sixth largest (by production volume) manufacturer. Belden Brick is the largest family owned and managed brick company in the United States.
