Leonard Block Company, founded May 5th, 1994 as the former Thomas Block Co was purchased by Rick & Skip Leonard, who were in the business of manufacturing concrete blocks for commercial buildings and residential foundations. We still manufacture them today!
In 1996 we saw the need to expand into the hardscape industry. With the addition of the Allan Block Retaining Walls manufactured by Nitterhouse Masonry Products, we also sell all their site amenity products. In 1997 we took on Hanover Architecture Prest Paver Inc. Business was booming as we were operating out of our manufacturing facility at 451 Oliver St, Jersey Shore so we decided to expand due to our rapid growth. Therefore, in 1999 we separated the hardscape product from the block manufacturing and expanded to an additional location off the Main St. Exit on Route 220 in Jersey Shore, PA. From there we have expanded into offering mulches, colored stone, sand stone, and topsoil. We also added on Unilock pavers & retaining walls, Picture pavers from Kennedy Concrete, linc-log fire places, and manufactured blue stone to our product lines!
In 2003, we started to get cramped for space again, causing us to start looking for a larger space, but not wanting to leave the immediate area. It was not an easy task to overcome. In 2004, we took on the E.P. Henry line of products, which really stretched us to the max. With no room to move we were now limited to the amount of inventory that we could stock and that is not what we wanted, as we are known for having what you need in stock if not enough for the whole job enough to get you started and the rest in stock by the time you need it. As luck would have it, the property across the road became available to Rick to purchase in June of 2004, so that's when things went into motion to move. With the excavation on the new lot and a larger office, we now have double the sq. footage with room for expansion with larger display areas being installed over the summer of 2005. Also, in 2005, we added the Massarelli's line of fine stone and garden accents (concrete tables, chairs, statues, benches, figurines, and bird baths).
Due to our abilities to listen to the needs and take care of our customers we have a large network of landscaping contractors we service. We are confident that we will have what you need and we look forward to serving you in the future!
