CARROLLTON, TX -- American Tile & Stone, an operating subsidiary of Acme Brick Co., is nearing a complete conversion to a totally company-owned fleet of delivery trucks. Previously, the company-owned portion was 90% of the total fleet with the goal of being 100% by mid-2015. "Having our own trucks enables us to have complete control of our scheduling without any compromise, and will be a critical factor as we expand our distribution area," said Bob Hendon, Vice President and General Manager for ATS.  "It's another great milestone in this our 50th anniversary year."

 The company has locations throughout Texas in Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Fort Worth and a 125,000-square-foot distribution center in Dallas. It is in the process of completing a 100,000-square-foot warehouse and storage facility in Houston, as well.
