Acme Brick Company has been producing brick in Denton, Texas since 1912. From the very beginning, Denton was a key Acme asset, and the proof came in January 1914, when the plant burned completely. On hearing the news, Acme’s president, Walter Bennett, said simply, "We will build this bigger and better than ever." The plant was back into production within 60 days. Through continual upgrades, Denton remains Acme's largest plant by capacity in the Acme system. And as the largest of Acme’s four architectural plants, it produces a broad selection of special shapes that enable architects to add dramatic depth, shadows, soffits, lintels, and sills to their projects – attaining the perfect balance of function, aesthetics, and economy.
