ACME Tools

Grand Forks, North Dakota

Starting with an initial prototype and developing into dozens of projects, JLG has proudly spent the last 27 years growing alongside ACME Tools. When the retail giant had stretched their current office facilities to the max, they called on JLG to help them prepare for the next 27 years – by creating a headquarters that would attract top talent, increase efficiency of current employees, and bring all of their corporate activities under one comfortable roof.

JLG’s solution remodeled an existing warehouse that was no longer necessary for ACME’s operations – expanding and branding the exterior to revitalize the north end of Washington Street, providing ample green space, and creating a prominent “red” entrance that didn’t exist before.

Existing exhaust skylights for the warehouse were reused to bring natural daylighting into the new open office area, and training facilities and conference rooms feature the modern ACME style of industrial materials complimented by soft wood.
