Acme was founded in 1932 by William Walters. Four generations of the Walters family worked in the business and grew the company through their commitment to providing excellent customer service and by investing in cutting edge coating equipment. In 2015, Acuity Capital Partners, a Chicago-based private equity firm invested in Acme. Acuity shares the Walters family’s commitment to providing customers with high quality coatings and great customer service. Working closely with the Walters and Acme’s skilled management team, Acuity plans to further expand Acme’s capabilities and service offerings in the years ahead.
