The brick house is an American tradition hundreds of years old. Acme Brick Company and its builder partners work every day to honor and extend that tradition:
From the beginning, commercial buildings and their architects have been a key element of Acme Brick Company's success.
With millions of workers operating full-time or on a hybrid basis from home, and online shopping being immensely popular, the number of home deliveries is higher now than at any time in history. This avalanche of shipping boxes and document envelopes is often sitting, in plain sight on the front porch, for any passerby to notice. It’s easy pickings for modern-day robbers.
Few manufacturing processes have had the impact of brick on civilization. Some estimates date brickmaking back to 7,200 B.C. It’s part art and part science. The rich hues are quintessentially natural and vary based on the area from which the clay is mined. This affords architects and builders a stunning design palette.
In a world where everything seems “virtual” and often superficial, two things have remained solid and strong, day after day for 131 years. These are Acme Brick products and its leadership. For the past 40 years, the team managing the iconic products and the people who make them has included Dennis Knautz, the company’s President and CEO. Now he is preparing for a new chapter in his life.
Founded in 1962 by 13 students of nearby Texas Southern University, Wheeler Avenue Baptist is a landmark in Houston's historic Third Ward and a beacon for the entire city. So when this rapidly growing church was ready to expand, it turned to Perkins&Will – which then turned to Acme Brick.
To help keep this project on track in an unusually challenging construction season, Acme sourced brick from three different plants – including an affiliate’s – in norman size.
Every year the annual Acme Brick What’s Hot and What’s Not in Home Design list is released to eagerly awaiting homeowners everywhere. The suspense is palpable! And why not?
