Alsip’s Building Products and Services is unlike other businesses. For more than a century, Alsip’s has been helping the people of Western Canada build – homes, businesses and community venues.
Alsip’s Building Products and Services is literally a cornerstone in Manitoba. Many of the brick buildings, with and without historical significance, throughout the province of Manitoba and city of Winnipeg are made with Alsip bricks.
William Alsip, a brickmaker from Chicago, founded the company in the late 1800s, manufacturing clay products such as brick, tile flue lining for chimneys and sewer pipe. Alsip’s was officially incorporated on November 20, 1905, as Alsip’s Brick, Tile and Lumber Company. To date, the company has been handed down through five generations of Alsips – William Alsip, Elmer Lee Alsip, Frank Alsip, Wayne Alsip and Jason and Brad Alsip.
Recently Alsip’s has re-branded itself with a new look. This new image is a combination of the past with the present. While the look has changed, the commitment to service excellence and delivery of high quality products continues.
In the spring of 2009, Alsip’s opened its first store-front location outside Winnipeg. This marks a new opportunity for Alsip’s to become a valued resource to architects, trades people and consumers in a new location. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan is home to the new design-centre style showroom and outlet, located at 410B 48th Street East, 306.384.3588.

I-XL has a long history in the brick and stone business. Over 100 years ago, I-XL began as brick makers and, over time, have evolved into premier suppliers of brick and stone in Western Canada.
I-XL is a family owned and operated company, currently in its fourth generation. It’s head office is located in Surrey, British Columbia.
Thanks to readily available natural gas and unique clay bodies, brick was made at the Medicine Hat plant from 1886 to 2010 when a flood halted operations. Herb Sissons built the original I-XL Redcliff plant, where clay was mined underground and then eventually fed into mechanical brick presses and set by hand into the mechanical down-draft kilns.
By 1913, the company had already switched to the extrusion process and began making wire cut bricks and hollow building tiles. With the formation of a parent company known as I-XL Industries Ltd. in 1912, the “I-XL” mantra – meaning “I excel” – became an early 20th century mission statement which was eventually stamped into the frog of every pressed brick from 1921 onwards.
I-XL acquired the Medicine Hat plant in 1929, which was established in 1886. In 2003, our two Alberta operations were consolidated into the Medicine Hat site. At this same time, robotic equipment as installed for our dry-pressed line. This resulted in more capacity, faster production and better health and safety for workers.
In 2010, there was a flood at the facilities and the plant closed operations. Though this could have been a devastating turn of events for I-XL, the company persevered and moved into the distribution side of the business.
I-XL is now the major distributor of manufactured stone veneers for Eldorado Stone and carries a wide array of natural stone veneers as well as our tried and true brick. Like the brick and stone we sell I-XL stands the test of time.
I-XL Industries is the parent company to I-XL Masonry Supplies. I-XL Masonry Supplies operates masonry supply yards in Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton, Burnaby and Surrey. These locations are a major supplier of Brick, Glass Block, Natural and Manufactured Stone.
