Acme Brick Stays in the Know About Community Workforce Changes Through Denton Economic Development Partnership
1 Aug 2023
Acme Pressed Brick and Denton Pressed Brick merged in 1910 and later opened the Denton Plant in 1963. The Denton site offered three key essentials: a high-quality and plentiful clay reserve nearby, rail availability close to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and the potential to build a strong workforce in the area.
“The Denton site also provided a different color than the shale used at other sites,” said Danielle Dickson, the Plant Manager’s Administrative Assistant for Acme Brick Denton.
Acme is focused on its operations, impact, and people, along with regular upgrades to keep up with advancing technology. The Acme team is dedicated to accommodating employees and has a history of promoting from within the company with entry level employees working their way up to leading positions.
Acme Brick Invested in Denton EDP
As Denton grew and technology in the industry continued to change, the Acme Brick Denton team strived to understand these shifts and what the new generations of associates were expecting. By becoming an investor for the Denton Economic Development Partnership, the team had the opportunity to learn from other involved employers.
“Over the years, Acme Brick has understood the importance of being a good neighbor and working with the community it operates in,” Dickson said. “I believe that is why we have been successful, not only here in Denton but in the many other areas we operate in, and have had such longevity in those communities.”
