Oldcastle renames masonry unit
Oldcastle Architectural, a leading producer of concrete masonry products in North America, has renamed its high-density, pre-finished architectural concrete masonry unit Cordova Stone, according to a company announcement. The rebrand is part of the company’s research and development in artisan stone veneers.
The adoption of the new name Cordova Stone signifies the end of the company’s sale of the product under the Prairie Stone brand. Oldcastle Architectural plans to unveil additional artisan product offerings in the coming months under the Artisan Masonry Stone Veneers brand.
Manufactured by Northfield Block, an Oldcastle company, Cordova Stone achieves the look of natural stone by using all natural aggregates. Whether in a veneer or through-wall application, Cordova Stone is suitable for both commercial and residential projects.
