Century Brand is the collision of two worlds in historic preservation. Ken Uracius has nearly 40 years in the masonry industry, working on some of the largest new construction and restoration projects in the country. In 2002 he began experimenting with the exact same stone that was used to make mortars for many of our architectural treasures, especially those in America's major US cities, from a little town in upstate New York named Rosendale, and in the process created Freedom Cement and became one of the biggest advocates for restoring historic structures with like materials. After 15 years in the historic mortars business and the closing of Virginia Lime Works, Jeff Price joined Ken at Freedom Cement as Director of Sales and Marketing. Together, Freedom Cement was relaunched as Century Brand, makers of traditional Rosendale cement, importers of Vicat Prompt Natural Cements and Lafarge Natural Hydraulic Limes, and providers of an unparalleled level of expertise in the field of historic preservation.
