Acme Brick to distribute Bautex Block in Texas markets
Acme Brick will represent Bautex products in Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston
By Ron Taylor
Acme Brick Co. has expanded its agreement with Bautex Systems to distribute Bautex Block, an insulated concrete block whose wall system meets and exceeds 2015 building and energy codes. As part of the expanded agreement, Acme Brick will now represent Bautex products in most major Texas markets, including Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston.
“Bautex and Acme are the right team to meet the needs of some of the strongest construction markets in Texas,” said Paul Brown, president, Bautex Systems. “Our recent projects in Houston indicate that owners want safer, stronger, better performing, and more efficient buildings. Acme Brick has been meeting the needs of architects, general contractors, masonry contractors, developers and homebuilders for many years. Together we are ready to meet the needs of owners and tenants who want to meet the highest standards for energy efficiency, sustainability, durability and safety from windstorm and fire.”
The Bautex Wall System is built on the company’s proprietary insulating concrete block. Bautex Block is a lightweight building block made from beads of expanded polystyrene blended with a proprietary cement mixture. Light enough to be handled by a single worker, Bautex Block is simple and quick to install without the need for specialized equipment or installers. It can easily be cut and formed to meet any design requirement. Exterior walls may be finished with traditional masonry, stucco or panel exterior finishes.
Bautex Systems entered the Houston market in 2013 and is meeting a range of demands for projects including light and medical office buildings and schools and dormitories seeking both energy efficiency and additional protections from coastal storms. This new distribution agreement with Acme Brick ensures that it can meet growing demand.
