About Snyder Brick & Block

FAMILY OWNED & OPERATED

At Snyder Brick & Block, we work hard to satisfy your needs and we’ve been doing it for over five generations spanning over seventy years. We are a manufacturer of concrete block and a distributor of quality building products. Founded in 1949 by Milton G. Snyder, Snyder Brick & Block was originally designed to serve the greater Miami Valley area and now encompasses all of southern Ohio. Since its founding, the company has grown to include four manufacturing facilities with six retail stores.

OUR COMMITMENT

Over the years Snyder Brick & Block has remained family owned and operated for over five generations and is currently the only block manufacturing facility remaining in the city of Dayton. Our product line has expanded greatly since we first opened our doors. We no longer are limited only to concrete block but handle such items as brick, masonry tools, fireplace materials, concrete reinforcing steel, epoxy, construction chemicals, mortar, cement, wire mesh, polyethylene film, expansion joint, rigid insulation, patio block, glass block, porcelain tile, cultured stone, natural stone and retaining wall systems. Snyder Brick & Block is a company based on the highest standards of quality and committed to delivering the best possible service. As we grow and expand to stay on top of an ever changing market we will always stay with the tradition that this company was built on.

Our History

Milton G. Snyder started it all when he established Snyder Brick & Block back in 1949. It all began at its first location at 2613 South Dixie Ave (now 1733 Industrial Estates Drive – our hardscapes location). In 1946, M.G. Snyder began making concrete block with a one at-a-time automatic machine. A few years later in 1949, when he incorporated Snyder Concrete Products, he purchased a GoCorp. This was a three at-a-time block machine which was considered very advanced for the time. When Snyder Brick & Block started, one block would cost .15¢ and a bag of rich mortar would cost .75¢. Since then, Snyder Brick & Block has expanded to six locations and is on its fifth generation. Lee Snyder, the current owner, takes pride that the company is still family owned and operated and strongly believes that it will continue to be for years to come. 

"It is my vision that Snyder Concrete Products will last another 70 years. Maybe two or three more generations."
