Berks Products began in 1896 with the consolidation of two businesses to sell wood and coal. For over a century, the company continued to prosper, expanding into the new products and businesses that shaped the current Berks Products as quality providers of ready mix concrete, aggregates, building products for residential, commercial construction with a heating and cooling division; remaining through it all, a family-owned business.
 
Berks Products has been a leading supplier to the construction industry, serving through its staff of 325 people products such as Building Materials, Ready Mix Concrete, Stone, Fuel Oil, HVAC Services and Commercial Fleet Fueling. The company is headquartered in Pennsylvania with operations located in Berks County, Montgomery County and Lehigh County, all in Southeast Pennsylvania. 
 
The four divisions of the company are the Home Heating and Oil Division in Berks County; Ready Mix Concrete Division with plants in Berks, Lehigh and Montgomery counties; Stone Division with locations in Berks County and the Building Materials Divisions with two locations in Berks County.

Berks Products brings a whole palette of integral colors for hardscaping, walkway, patio and pool deck needs or commercial applications including tilt-up and anywhere else gray concrete is used. A unique feature of these is that unlike other techniques where the color is applied to the surface of gray concrete, integrally colored concrete is colored all the way through, making nicks or chips less noticeable.

The Color system computer here automates the process of adding color by injecting liquid pigment directly into the mix – at the plant, taking away the guess work and messy bags of powder at the job site, contributing greatly to giving customers consistent color, which is fade proof, lime proof, weather-resistant and long lasting. Available also, is a range of coarse and fine aggregates to supply material for residential, commercial and industrial construction projects like Fill material Parking lots, Concrete bases, Backfill, Driveway base, Street base, Electric ditches, Precast production, Sewer systems, Retention basins, Erosion control, Water diversion.
