Today, Watkins is part of a network of block manufacturers throughout the state owned by NEBCO, Inc. of Lincoln. Watkins manufactures over 1300 concrete block items in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors for the construction industry.

The hardscape market has expanded Watkins product line with concrete and clay pavers and Anchor Wall Systems retaining wall block and natural landscape stone.
