April Tour - Whitacre Greer

April 13, 2017 | Whitacre Greer

Whitacre Greer is a small manufacturer of fired-clay paving bricks and firebricks. Whitacre Greer was founded in 1916 by J.J. Whitacre, and the family still owns and manages the company. The company is able to make many unique products in short production runs using a dry-pressing process to form the products and then fires them into gas-burning kilns. Some of the fire-clay paving bricks have been used for paving all over the country (see photos below). Whitacre Greer is the leading producer of low-duty fire bricks. These bricks are used in construction of fireplaces and other light industrial applications. For more information, check out Whitacre Greer's website: Join us for dinner afterwards at Polinori's Palm Garden
