Fort Worth, Texas - Acme Brick Company is celebrating the company’s 127th year in business on April 17th by presenting each employee with two pair of cotton/spandex socks. One pair bears an image of Acme’s Brick Boy mascot who makes appearances at various events. The second pair features the famous Acme red logo. “Sometimes you need to build top of mind awareness for your company from the bottom up”, quipped Acme’s Director of Marketing, Britt Stokes.
Acme was founded on April 17, 1891, just 26 years after the end of the civil war and the same year that James Naismith invented the game of basketball. Also in 1891 Benjamin Harrison was President of the U.S. and Thomas Edison patented the “transmission of signals electrically” otherwise known as radio!
