Magnolia Brick continues a long history and storied tradition of brick commerce in the red-clay hills of North Mississippi.
There have been brick-making and brick-selling in this area since the 18th century, when even small rural communities would have a localized brick kiln and brick were moved about by mule-drawn wagons. Some larger agricultural farms would also have kilns on property to serve the needs of developing towns throughout the area.
Fast forward to today, where the once-sleepy towns of North Mississippi – Tupelo, Corinth, Oxford, Pontotoc, Batesville, Clarksdale, Tunica, Senatobia, Iuka, and others – have been transformed into local and regional centers of family life, commerce, and educational opportunities. And in this transformation, the building and construction industries have boomed.
Magnolia Brick started physically in the area in 2000 after an acquisition with a showroom/yard in Oxford and Tupelo. Today, we continue with a similar footprint and strategy, with sales representation that covers the entirety of North Mississippi – from Highway 82 north to the Tennessee state line and from the Mississippi River into the western edges of Alabama.
Our staff is experienced, representing over 50+ years in the brick selling business. Our collective professional background includes work in the masonry trade, sales and marketing, and financial services.
We work hard and intentionally on one side of the fence by developing relationships with a wide range of suppliers and manufacturer partners. If you ask us about these relationships, we generally know our partners personally and we strive to invest in them daily. If you ask them, they would acknowledge the same!
Finally, we engage our customers.
With our experience and supplier relationships, we seek to inform customers with a wide range and selection of products second to no one in our industry; we seek to be helpful and consultative based on practical experience.
Secondly, we are passionate about service for we feel that is really what we sell. The coordination of the delivery of product offerings in our business is challenging and costly both in dollars, manpower and equipment. But, we are dialed in to making it happen!
Thirdly, we are committed to the value in our product offerings, our service, and our approach to business. This is not code language. We feel this is the best way, the only way, to present our company as a long-term and continually sustainable solution to uncovering customer needs.
