It All Starts With One Little Brick
Remember reading the story of the 3 Little Pigs when you were a kid? Remember which of the 3 houses the pigs built was built to last? (Spoiler Alert) The brick house, of course! Acme Brick understands the idea of making something last.
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 homeowners, builders, contractors, institutions, and businesses.
The Acme Name
The Acme Brick Company logo is stamped onto select residential brick for specific reasons. When you see the Acme name, you can be sure that the brick is:
- Hard-fired for lasting strength. The Acme name indicates that the brick is made from premium clay and hard-fired in computer-controlled kilns at temperatures that often exceed 1,800 degrees. The result is a brick that will outlast your mortgage and stay beautiful without having to be painted, sealed, or maintained in other ways.
- Tested for durability and safety. The Acme name is your assurance that the home’s brick exceeds the specifications in all local building codes.
- American-made by an American-owned company. Acme owns 26 brick plants in the central and southeastern United States.
- Backed with one of the most substantial commitments in the industry: Acme’s pacesetting 100-Year Limited Guarantee for Homebuyers.
Acme Brick Company makes brick for every type of home and every budget, from starter homes to mansions. And with their high standards for the brick they produce, it’s no surprise that all Acme Brick are manufactured to exceed the standards of applicable building codes. All residential bricks made by Acme is backed with a 100-Year Limited Guarantee.
Acme Brick & Our Environment
Although “sustainability” is a relatively new term, the basic concept has been part of Acme Brick Company since its founding.
Since 1891, Acme has built and operated brick plants near population centers. Today their network is 26 plants strong – and meets LEED’s “local production” criterion of 500 miles’ distance for nearly all of the central and southeastern United States
Acme people work hard to be good stewards of the environment. Their brick is made from quality earth clays and fired with clean natural gas in highly efficient, computer-controlled kilns. Two Alabama plants use methane from landfills.
They also recycle materials such as scrap clay and sawdust, incorporating them into the body of our brick. These efforts keep waste out of landfills.
Acme’s stewardship continues even after production ends. Through their industry-recognized reclamation programs, they have planted hundreds of thousands of trees at inactive production sites and created wetlands that offer attractive habitats for wildlife.
As you can see, Acme Brick places environmental concerns high on their list of priorities. So it’s no surprise their efforts don’t stop there. Acme Brick is now a proud participant in Texas’ Sponsor A Highway® program, which helps to keep the roadways litter free.
Thank you, ACME Brick, for supporting and participating in the Texas Sponsor A Highway® program. If it weren’t for businesses like you, our roadways wouldn’t be nearly as safe and as beautiful as they are today!
