Strength, Quality, Integrity, Creativity, and Passion: attributes that define our precious stones and our company.

Founded in 1989, a combination of art and science paved the road to Techo-Bloc’s success in creating innovative products unsurpassed for their strength, durability, esthetics, and functionality. These characteristics continue to define our products and our company.

2012

Techo-Bloc enhances its geographic reach and its service to American customers with a new production facility in the USA. For the Canadian market Techo-Bloc launches a new line of polished textures, ideal for modern landscape design, as well as the full-size Foyer fireplace.

2011

Techo-Bloc continues to introduce products that meet market trends. A good example is its amazing Aberdeen line.

Aberdeen
A chart-topper, Aberdeen combines the beauty of naturally carved and sculpted stones with the dimensional tolerances of a manufactured product.

Setting new standards in wetcast
Techo-Bloc designs and builds the leading-edge Stonedge II wetcast plant, the first fully automated facility of its kind in the world. Stonedge II is dedicated to replicating natural stone as closely as possible with all the benefits of color and dimensional consistency that only perfectly manufactured stone can offer.

INFLO - the giant leap forward
Techo-Bloc takes yet another giant step forward this year with the introduction of its unique commercial and industrial paver, INFLO. An ecological product, INFLO is a sustainable, long-lasting and resistant paver that will change how we pave commercial, industrial and public properties, thanks to its revolutionary permeable pavement system. Unlike porous pavers, INFLO is a solid paver system that allows water to infiltrate through the joints rather than through its own surface, reducing blockage problems and allowing for easier cleaning. With its tongue-and-groove design, INFLO maintains its interlocking properties over time, even under high-volume and heavy traffic loads.

2010

More and more, people are expressing a desire to integrate natural elements into their outdoor living spaces while taking advantage of the resistance and durability of a manufactured product. Always ready to respond to customer desires, Techo-Bloc introduces Flagstone, Monticello and Portofino.

Flagstone
This innovative and unique paver is a mosaic of carefully sculpted stone.

Monticello
Monticello’s rich colours are rendered still more dramatic by its distinctive, undulating surface texture. Deeply chiseled edges speak of strength and endurance, accentuating the timeless grandeur of these impressive slabs.

2009

Introduction of four vibrant new colors: Chestnut Brown, Harvest Gold, Autumn Red and Oceana. Techo-Bloc also launches its latest creations: Blu 80mm, Mista and Venetian.

Blu 80mm
The Blu line redefines luxury with its large scale modular pieced system. It sets the bar for scale and style.

Mista
Adding to its avant-garde attribute of combining rugged and natural-looking textures onto units of various sizes, Mista’s permeable version allows surface water to percolate through to the ground, returning naturally to its source.

Venetian
This type of overlay system is ideal for covering old concrete surfaces, adding value and beauty to the landscape.

2008

Once again, Techo-Bloc innovates with a new product line-up, introducing five new products to an already vast selection of pavers and retaining walls. Three new retaining walls make their entrance: Suprema Split Face, Suprema Chiseled and Muro Naturale. The new Maya stepping stone is unveiled along with the elegant and versatile Parisien paver.

Building new corporate headquarters
Techo-Bloc moves into new, modern corporate offices.

2007

Techo-Bloc has always thrived on its ability to anticipate opportunities, take on challenges, and create innovative products for a rapidly changing market. In 2007, Techo-Bloc launches nine new products: BluPermea, Röcka, Villagio, Pillar Mini-Creta 3" and 6"Escala Wall & Escala Cap, and Stonedge Cap 28". These products take the market by storm and will continue to be some of our best-sellers.

New plant in Pennsylvania
In June 2007, our second plant opens in Pen Argyl. This strategic investment increases Techo-Bloc’s manufacturing capacity and expands our customer services capabilities.

2006

Techo-Bloc presents Monumental Blok, a breakthrough in retaining wall technology. Monumental Blok offers a sculpted, handcrafted appearance while providing immense weight-retaining strength with its monumentally large stones and special anchoring system. Monumental Blok provides the ability to build walls up to twelve feet high without the use of geogrid and offers significant savings on installation costs.

2005

Techo-Bloc produces the first rugged, high-relief textured paving stone, Santorini. With its strategically accentuated elevations and impressions, this paver provides a bold, hand-hewn look, enhancing any landscape design.

Stonedge is founded
Stonedge, a wetcast production facility owned by Techo-Bloc, is founded with the goal of replicating natural stone’s appearance, color and texture. Stonedge product lines establish new standards in the landscape industry and will perpetuate this legacy.

2004

Techo-Bloc brings its Canadian innovations to the United States. The world’s most sophisticated and technologically advanced paving stone and retaining wall production plant opens in Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania.

2002

With the introduction of Quarry Stone, Techo-Bloc offers the world its first retaining wall with the look of hand-chiseled, handcrafted stone (Patent #2,392,934).

2001

Techo-Bloc renders the existing method of drum-tumbling obsolete with new technology that prevents product breakage, eliminates the time-consuming sorting of stones and eradicates cement slurry from the pavers’ surfaces. This revolutionary technique results in a product unsurpassed in quality, beauty and durability.

1999

Elena, the first modular paving stone to be offered in a single pallet, is engineered and marketed.

1998

Our Belgik curbstone becomes the first manufactured replica of authentic Belgian block.
