Michie Named General Production Manager for Acme Brick (posted 5/5/09)

Acme Brick recently announced the promotion of David Michie to the position of general production manager, replacing Jerry Hodge, who is retiring after almost 14 years with the company. Michie most recently served as Acme’s assistant production manager.

Michie began his career with Acme Brick in 1985 after graduating from NTSU with a degree in business management. He was hired to work at the Denton, Texas, plant as a management trainee. After working as plant superintendent at Denton, he transferred in 1993 to the McQueeney, Texas, plant as plant manager. In 1998, he was promoted and moved to Malvern, Ark., as regional production manager for the central Arkansas production region.

“Throughout David’s nearly 24 years with Acme, he has demonstrated a willingness to work to improve our company through employee development, by building strong relationships with our sales department, through product development and quality initiatives, and by providing our employees with a safe, productive work environment,” said Ed Watson, senior vice president of Production.

Of the retiring Jerry Hodge, Watson said, “Since joining Acme almost 14 years ago, Jerry has played an instrumental role in the 70% growth of Acme’s productive brick capacity, which was achieved through existing plant expansion, new plant construction and acquisitions. During this process, our plants were able to make major improvements in fuel efficiency, quality, cost control and safety performance.”
