A History of Advancement
Since its founding in 1891, Acme Brick has continually advanced the art and science of brickmaking, to make brick an affordable, sustainable, enduring, and beautiful choice for America’s homeowers, builders, contractors, institutions, and businesses.
From the beginning, commercial buildings and their architects have been a key element of Acme Brick Company’s success. Within 10 years of its founding, Acme was able to advertise that “[a]ll buildings of any consequence that have been built in [the north Texas cities of] Plano, Greenville, Terrell, Waxahachie, Ennis, Corsicana, Hillsboro, and Fort Worth for the past seven years have been built of these brick.”
When architects design buildings “of consequence,” they turn to Acme Brick today.
Acme’s architectural support takes many forms. Each sales region has an in-house registered engineer, and our general office can provide technical assistance, too. We maintain a large shapes program at each architectural brick plant. And most of Acme’s commercial blends are now available in lightweight thinBRIK versions, to go where conventional brick can’t.
Acme is also committed to the future of the profession.
We maintain an extensive outreach program at university architecture departments throughout our direct selling area.
