We make brick in Maine.
Our brick originates from local clay of deposits created by the receding glaciers of the last Ice Age. Sensitively mined in the Androscoggin Watershed for over a hundred years, we form the brick according to the same authentic 17th Century wet mold waterstruck brick process that produced many of North America’s oldest brick buildings.
Past and present projects include buildings at the Universities of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Minnesota.
Bates, Colby, Bowdoin, Amherst, Dartmouth, Brandeis, Harvard, Brown, BC and BU, Phillips Andover, Phillips Exeter and Holderness represent but a few of the many schools, colleges and universities where Morin brick contributes to the stature, longevity and therefore life-cycle value of the campuses.
Far from just a campus brick of choice, Morin Waterstruck Brick gracefully clads civic and cultural landmarks throughout New England in anonymous dignity.

Champions of waterstruck Brick
New England’s tradition of producing fine Waterstuck brick continues. We are proud to be the sole remaining wet mold Waterstruck manufacturer in North America. And now, Morin becomes the first Waterstruck manufacturer in North America to offer twelve inch Norman and Roman size units as standard production items.
The ability to remain historically authentic while advancing technically enables us to introduce these new-to-Waterstruck brick sizes now in demand by many prominent design firms throughout the United States and Canada.
Morin’s expertise in special brick shape production is well honed. We produce shapes for architecturally important projects of any size. If you can sketch the condition, we can advise the shape configuration and supply the drawings.
Over our Century plus, Morin Brick has been used on both mansions and modest dwellings, local post offices and global internet success stories, elementary schools as well as university graduate schools, local physicians’ offices, major hospital medical centers and international research laboratories. But the common denominator linking that diverse end-use mix is that Morin Brick continues to provide human scale in nearly all styles of architecture.
