When Morris was joined by his sons in the 1930s, the firm became Morris Black & Sons, Inc.  In 1943, the company added an insulation subcontracting business, one of the first in the entire country. Today, the Insulation Department installs fiberglass and polyurethane foam insulation in residential and light commercial buildings throughout the Lehigh Valley and beyond. In 1946, a modern office and warehouse was built in Bethlehem, which facilitated innovative methods of material handling such as palletized storage, forklift trucks, and conveyors to move large quantities of sand and stone.
