Acme Brick in Arkansas

Recently, Acme Brick Company executives, including President and CEO Dennis Knautz, joined Springdale, Ark., Mayor Doug Sprouse and other officials to turn the first shovels of soil for Acme’s new showroom and warehouse.

The 6,256 square-foot showroom and office, and 14,494 square-foot warehouse will sit on 5.78 acres. “This new facility is a demonstration of our confidence in the growth potential for this dynamic region of Arkansas,” said Knautz.

Acme established its first Northwest Arkansas sales presence about 40 years ago. Since then, its nine-county service area has tripled in population—from 186,000 in 1970 to well over half a million today. To keep pace with this growth, Acme has increased brick production and added a wide variety of products. As a result, the company has outgrown its current location. The new facility is scheduled for completion in early 2017.

Acme Brick Company, founded in 1891, is the nation’s largest brickmaker. Acme owns 26 brick plants and has 69 company-owned sales offices across 14 states, plus a nationwide network of independent distributors. Other Acme operations include American Tile & Stone; Featherlite Building Products; Innovative Building Products; and Texas Quarries. For more information, visit www.brick.com.
