2020 Green Initiative

Westbrook Concrete Block is invested not only in the Masonry Industry but in Sustainable Construction.  Our 2020 Green Initiative takes the concepts of understanding our the effect on the environment and allows us to provide the same High Quality Products we have for over 70 years while limiting our carbon footprint.

While the production of Portland Cement is on the Top 5 Producers of CO2 emissions worldwide we have researched and developed a manufacturing process to help our Industry step away from this.  By offering Pozzotive a post-consumer solution in all of our CMU by 2020 Westbrook has made a commitment to future generations to be a leader in Sustainable Construction.

Pozzotive

Pozzotive is a high performance pozzolan, made from 100% recycled post-consumer glass. This glass is diverted from multiple post-consumer waste streams, including bottle redemption and curbside pickup. The glass is processed to remove all organics, and then milled to a precisely graded, powder-like substance in a size appropriate for Portland Cement replacement. Pozzotive can be used in a multitude of products, such as our architectural CMU and WESTBRICKS®.

With the introduction of Pozzotive into our manufacturing process we have seen major improvements to the quality of our CMU.  This post-consumer material while meeting or exceeding all ASTM standards has created a stronger and denser CMU that provides a lower permeability rating that the Industry Standard.  While doing all this we are able to be environmentally responsible and contribute to LEED and High Performance Construction nationally.

Innovation

We have been innovators in the concrete block industry for over 70 years, always searching for a way to improve the manufacturing process of the concrete masonry unit (CMU). While following architectural trends we strive to meet the needs with new finishes and products regularly . With the release of Spectra Glaze by Westbrook, Omni Block, and WESTBRICKS. Westbrook continues to be a lead the Industry in Innovation.

While continuing our commitment to the Masonry Industry with the same high quality CMU, we are always up for new challenges. Our Innovative Culture drives us to create materials that we can be proud of and revolutionize our industry. Do you have an idea that no other manufacturer has said can be done? Let us know we are up for the challenge!
