Garth Tayler, technical director at Acme Brick Co., received the Harry E. Ebright Award at the recent South West Section (SWACerS) meeting of the American Ceramic Society (ACerS). The Ebright Award was given in recognition of Tayler’s outstanding services to the South West Section.

Tayler was born in the small town of Ogies (Afrikaans for “Little Eyes”) near Johannesburg, South Africa. As the son of a miner, he grew up in a family that moved to a number of different mining locations as his father climbed the management ladder and developed his career. Tayler was inspired early in his life by his father’s dedication, tenacity and determination.

He immigrated with his wife to the U.S. to join Acme Brick in 1995. The company sponsored him through the naturalization process while he obtained his permanent residency. He became an American citizen in 2002.

Tayler holds degrees in ceramic engineering, mechanical engineering and business economics. He is a certified professional engineer in South Africa. Shortly after joining Acme Brick, he received his doctorate in ceramic engineering from the Staffordshire University in the UK.

During his 16 years with Acme Brick, Tayler has been an active member-participant, speaker and promoter of SWACerS. As a recognized authority in his field, he has promoted the valuable and integral role that the SWACerS organization has had in the process of educating and motivating members as they develop their careers in the brick industry.
