Fletcher Steele, president of Pine Hall Brick Company, the world's largest manufacturer of clay pavers, has been awarded a Family Business Award by the Triad Business Journal in recognition of longevity in business across four generations of his family. Steele's great-grandfather J.C. Steele began Statesville-based J.C. Steele & Sons, which manufactured brickmaking equipment, in 1889. J.C. Steele's son, Flake Steele, purchased the dormant Consolidated Brick Company in Pine Hall, NC, along with hundreds of acres of land that contained Triassic shale, a key ingredient in brick. Pine Hall Brick Company began operations in 1922.

The Steele family has been involved in Pine Hall Brick Company's growth since its beginnings, which continues. Today, Fletcher Steele's three sons are involved in the business: Walt Steele, vice president and chief operating officer; Preston Steele, VP and thin products manager; and Tyler Steele, who is a sales representative for a brick and masonry subsidiary company in Richmond, Virginia.

Notably, of the 15 family-owned companies that were honored by the Triad Business Journal, only Pine Hall Brick Company and one other firm, Schiffman's Jewelers of Greensboro, were the longest to be held under family ownership, at four generations.
