This is fourth edition of Acme Brick Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Report. This report has evolved over time and is one of the ways that we document the results of several specific goals (called Key Performance Indicators, or KPIs) that were established when we rolled out our Strategic Framework in 2019. Within the following pages you will see evidence of Acme’s commitment to Making Acme a Great Place to Work and Supporting and Strengthening our Communities, two of our four Pillars of Success. These pillars, along with Providing Industry-leading Customer Service and Exceeding Profit Goals, were established to help our leadership and associates to focus on our Vision to be THE trusted materials solution for enduring beauty, safety, and strength in building communities.
I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a company that recently celebrated 132 years of creating sustainable, innovative, and diverse building materials/solutions to fulfill our customers’ needs. We are continuously striving to create a captivating customer experience and expand the selection of products and services we offer in the building materials market.
Our plants, our sales offices, and the Fort Worth General Office all operate in an environmentally sustainable manner. This is more than just complying with all environmental mandates, it involves a conscious effort to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle whenever possible. One of our KPIs is to improve stewardship by diverting a minimum of 10% of our waste from landfills to recyclers.
We are very proud of our company’s associates and work hard to ensure that they have a career, not just a job. We desire to maintain a culture where our associates keep each other safe and feel that they are our greatest assets. We also encourage every location to be engaged in its local community through thoughtful giving and environmental stewardship. As you read this report, I believe you will be able to see some of the evidence that we are aligned in achieving these goals. I appreciate your taking the time and showing your interest in reviewing it.
Ed Watson, President and CEO
