Acme Brick Celebrates 119 Years

May 21, 2010

Established in 1891, Acme Brick Co. celebrated its 119th birthday on April 17. As part of the celebration, the company provided birthday cakes to all sales offices and plant locations, along with an umbrella with the Acme logo to tie in to the company’s “Road to Rebound” theme.

Each umbrella included a note that read: “There's no question about it. We've had a stormy couple of years. The weatherman hasn't taken rain out of the forecast just yet and the ground is still pretty damp underfoot. As things dry out, we expect the pace of building to pick up. We're on the Road to Rebound. And we're not about to let the weather slow us down so keep your Acme umbrella handy.”
