Techo-Bloc was founded in 1989 with the goal of designing and manufacturing hardscaping products such as paving stones, retaining wall systems, and masonry stones
that blend more seamlessly and harmoniously with the natural
environment. With innovations in both design and application,
Techo-Bloc has transformed science into art, elevating paving stones and masonry products from ordinary to elegant.
For nearly two decades, Techo-Bloc’s product development has been
committed to beautifying the continent one landscape at a time. Today, our locations
include three facilities in Canada and a new state-of-the-art plant in
Pennsylvania, with each locale continuing this commitment to creativity
and quality. Techo-Bloc is paving our way across North America affordably and artistically.
has changed the face of an industry with our expertise and excellence

just a sample of our groundbreaking achievements:
1995-1996: Techo-Bloc introduces the world’s first tumbled interlocking retaining-wall system, Creta (Patent #2,114,677). In addition, we create the industry’s first pre-cast antiqued curbstone, Pietra, as well as Tetra paving stone, North America’s first tumbled jumbo-size paving stone.
1997: The world’s first commercial replica of ancient cobblestone, the Allegro, is introduced (Patent #2,214,295).

1999: Elena, the first modular paving stone to be offered in one single pallet, is engineered and marketed.
renders the existing method of drum-tumbling obsolete with new
technology that prevents product breakage, eliminates the
time-consuming sorting of stones, and eradicates the cement slurry from
the pavers’ surfaces. This revolutionary technique results in a product
unsurpassed in quality, beauty, and durability.
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).
2004: Techo-Bloc brings our 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.
2005: Techo-Bloc produces the first rugged, high-relief paving stone Santorini. With its strategically accentuated elevations and impressions, this paver provides a bold, hand-hewn look, enhancing any landscape design.
2006: Techo-Bloc presents Monumental Blok, a breakthrough in retaining wall
technology. Monumental Blok offers a sculpted, handcrafted appearance
while making a bold, strong statement in any landscape. Thanks to
Techo-Bloc’s special anchoring system, the stones are simply set into
place with a backhoe or small dozer. Monumental Blok allows you to build walls up to twelve feet high without the use of geogrid. Roughly the same size as a dozen Mini-Creta, Monumental Blok provides you with significant savings on installation costs.
