Yankee Hill Brick To Build New Plant

Yankee Hill Brick & Tile will build a new brick plant at its current site in southwest Lincoln, Neb. The plant will increase the company's production capacity from 22 million brick to over 40 million brick annually. Yankee Hill has signed a contract with Swindell Dressler Corp. of Pittsburgh, Pa., for the turnkey construction of the plant, which will consist of a dryer, a 348-ft-long tunnel kiln and automated brick handling equipment. Construction is expected to take 12 months, and it is anticipated that the plant will be completed and able to begin brick production by December 2004. "We are elated to begin this project," said Harvey P. Cahoon, president. "For several years, we've been unable to make enough brick to meet the demand. Besides the capacity increase, we have an added bonus. The plant will also be able to produce the popular Ironspot and Mojave colors, long sought after by our customers."

The company's website is located at http://www.YankeeHillBrick.com .
