Over 15 years ago, Acme Brick Company began celebrating the company’s April 17th birthday by giving each associate a present to honor the occasion.    This year Acme associates will receive a roadside assistance kit that includes a pair of heavy duty jumper cables in addition to an emergency flashlight, rain poncho, and “help” sign. “This is an item that nearly everyone can use. We expect that our associates will really jump all over the idea,” said company President and CEO Dennis Knautz. “After all, everyone needs a little boost now and then.” Knautz added that, “On a more serious note, we want to thank our customers for their support of Acme products over these many, many years. One reason to recognize our birthday is the remind all of us at Acme how fortunate we are to have a thriving company after well over a century in business.”
