Acme Brick Co. marked its 123rd anniversary on April 17. To celebrate, the company gave red camp chairs to its employees. Reportedly the largest brick company in the U.S., Acme was established April 17, 1891, near Weatherford, Texas, about 40 miles west of Fort Worth. 

“We always take this occasion of Acme’s birthday to remind everyone at Acme about our company’s long history and heritage, and also to take a moment to reflect on our good fortune all these 123 years,” said Dennis Knautz, president and CEO. “I’m sure that everyone in our Acme family will find lots of uses for their chairs from picnics to sporting events and even, if they’re lucky, for waiting on that big fish to bite. This is the sixteenth year that Acme has recognized our company’s birthday by giving presents to all our associates, just like any family would do.”
