Pine Hall Brick & Pavers

Pine Hall Brick Company is a 90-year-old family-owned business that manufactures face brick, pavers and special-shape brick. Founded in 1922 by Flake Steele, Sr., Pine Hall Brick enjoys a rich heritage of quality manufactured products and satisfied customers. 

While the company has always been headquartered in Winston-Salem, the manufacturing facilities were originally located in Pine Hall, NC. Pine Hall was the home of the dormant Consolidated Brick Company that Flake Steele bought to form the nucleus of the company. 

With the help of J. C. Steele & Sons, maker of automated brick making equipment since 1889 (and yes his father’s company), Flake formed a new brick company determined to be one of the top quality producers in the State of North Carolina. 

In the beginning there were seven round “beehive” kilns at Pine Hall, NC. Several years later in 1936, the company purchased the Madison Brick Company and eventually consolidated all their operations to Madison, NC.  During those early years, the company maintained fifty company-owned houses and two grocery stores for its employees. The original headquarters in Salem (of Winston-Salem) was just two doors from the Firehouse and the Old Salem Cafe. 

“In those days, each man was responsible for producing 1,000 bricks per day and most of the product was sent to Winston,” said Flake Steele, Jr., son of the founder.
