Gerry Broekman

Gerry remembers the early days when brick manufacturing was all manual, mostly by hand and using wheel barrows, before the times of forklifts, loaders and machinery which made a difference to the hard labour of years gone by. Gerry remembers watching his father making bricks, by hand in Holland, when he was a small boy, he pretty much grew up making bricks.

Gerry started at Namoi Valley Bricks with his four brothers, father and one brother-in-law in 1959. He took over the reins of the business in 2000 and since then retired and then went into semi-retirement, pretty much straight away, as he continues to work part-time whilst pursuing his outside interests, one being his beloved Chrysler.
