Canada’s leading distributor of architectural masonry products will offer an extensive range of products from Palmetto Brick to customers in Western Canada.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 22, 2022 — I-XL Building Products, the premier national distributor of architectural masonry products in Canada, is proud to announce that it has signed an agreement to become a distributor for Palmetto Brick products throughout Western Canada. Palmetto Brick produces more than 150 million brick per year and remains one of only a handful of brick manufacturers in the United States.
In the signing of the agreement, two of North America’s oldest and most respected architectural masonry companies have formed a strategic partnership that will prove to be highly beneficial to the construction industry in Canada. Palmetto Brick, the largest family-owned brick manufacturer in South Carolina, has a long and proud history of brickmaking that dates back to 1919, while I-XL has been the national leader and go-to source for exceptional quality masonry and cladding materials for the Canadian construction industry for over 100 years. As a result of this alliance, I-XL is now a preferred partner for Palmetto Brick, giving Canadian architects, builders, and contractors access to Palmetto’s premium line of products.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Palmetto Brick, a company that shares a century of family-owned tradition and our commitment to providing product and service excellence to our customers,” said I-XL President David Hughes. “We believe that this partnership gives I-XL an even greater selection of premium brick products to offer our clients from one of the United States’ most respected brick manufacturers.”
I-XL and Palmetto Brick share many similarities; both started as family-owned organizations and have been operating for over 100 years. With this significant history, I-XL and Palmetto Brick have an intimate understanding of the ever-changing demands of the market and can provide solutions that meet the needs of Canada’s construction industry professionals.
“We are very excited about this partnership with I-XL,” said Palmetto Brick National Sales Manager, Jeff Sizemore. “I-XL is a highly regarded company with an excellent reputation in the Canadian construction industry. We believe that partnering with I-XL will help us to better serve our customers in Western Canada.”
This partnership further consolidates I-XL’s position as Canada’s leading distributor of architectural masonry products. It also reinforces their commitment to providing customers with the highest quality products and their dedication to establishing long-term partnerships that will support the growth and success of the Canadian construction industry.
