“We love Sackett, they’re the best!”

The brick side of the business was started in 1962 by Herb Sackett. It was an old scrap yard and had a railroad line adjoining the property, making it good for unloading rail cars full of brick by hand, as it was done in those days. Herb’s wife and seven children, then ages 4 to 19, helped out by serving as a low cost labor force. The business began primarly selling brick, stone and masonry chimney supplies to builders and masons.
The hearth side of the business didn’t start until the early ’70s during the Arab oil embargo. The hearth side has since become a major focus of the company. Sackett’s now offers everything from brick and mortar to Cultured Stone, fireplaces, masonry heaters, and Heartland appliances.
Sackett Brick and Fireplace is about quality products and service. Our knowledgeable staff help educate and guide people to purchase what best suits their needs. Over the years, Sackett Fireplace has been involved in a wide range of masonry and hearth product installations, making us one of the most, if not THE most, experienced hearth shops in Southwest Michigan!
