Bautex Systems and Martini Brick Sales Team Up In Corpus Christi, Gulf Coast

Expanding its network on the Gulf Coast, Bautex Systems today announced that Martini Brick Sales will support sales and dis­tri­b­u­tion of the Bautex Block and the Bautex products in the Corpus Christi area. Martini Brick will represent Bautex products to its customers designing and con­struct­ing buildings for gov­ern­ment and com­mer­cial markets, with emphasis on K‑12, higher education, office, retail and hos­pi­tal­i­ty projects.

In addition, Martini Brick will help market Bautex products to res­i­den­tial archi­tects and custom home­builders whose clients want the highest standards for energy effi­cien­cy, sus­tain­abil­i­ty, dura­bil­i­ty and safety from windstorm and fire.

We admire the success of Martini Brick and look forward to helping it meet the needs of the community it has served for more than 50 years. They under­stand the unique chal­lenges facing archi­tects, general con­trac­tors, masonry con­trac­tors, and devel­op­ers who are building on the Gulf Coast,” says Paul Brown, president, Bautex Systems.

Five years ago, Bautex set out to simplify the entire process of con­struct­ing an insu­lat­ing concrete wall because we saw the growing need in Texas for three big benefits of this product: energy effi­cien­cy, fire safety, windstorm pro­tec­tion or all three,” he adds. Working with Martini Brick, we can help customers build walls and building envelopes that go head-to-head with every other option available, both on price and performance.”

Based in San Marcos, Bautex Systems designs and man­u­fac­tures a composite insu­lat­ing concrete form (ICF) known as the Bautex Block, a light­weight building block made from beads of expanded poly­styrene blended with a pro­pri­etary cement mixture. It is the foun­da­tion of the Bautex Wall System, which meets or exceeds safety standards for dura­bil­i­ty and pro­tec­tion from windstorm and fire, while also providing com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial buildings with superior insu­la­tion and energy efficiency.

Our customers trust us to provide products and service that exceed expec­ta­tions, and rep­re­sent­ing Bautex com­ple­ments our own masonry and concrete products,” says Les Hoelscher vice president, Martini Brick. We like that the Bautex Block sim­pli­fies the design and instal­la­tion of an insu­lat­ing concrete wall while making it safer and cost-com­pet­i­tive. The Bautex product will change the way our customers think about building walls, inside and out.”

Corpus Christi is a new market for Bautex, which launched its oper­a­tions in Central Texas in 2013 and entered the Houston market the same year. In 2013, the Bautex Wall System was selected for two projects at Sea Scout Base Galveston on Galveston Island. Archi­tects selected Bautex products in order to elevate an existing building 13 feet to get it out of the hurricane flood surge zone. In a second instal­la­tion, the Bautex Wall System formed exterior and interior walls for a new, five-story dormitory.
