Vermont Brick shutting down

Posted: Updated:
HIGHGATE CENTER, Vt. -

Up to 20 people will lose their jobs at Vermont Brick in Highgate Center.

The company says sales of a specialized, water-struck brick it manufactures are simply not paying the bills. The bricks were used in big projects, like UVM's Davis Building.

When Vermont Brick was founded in 1994, no brick of any type had been manufactured in Vermont in more than 40 years.

A spokesperson tells WCAX News the company is in the process of shutting down operations indefinitely. No date has been set.
