A History of Commitment
Back in the summer of 1964, Happy Cothren, a retired US Postal Service employee, had a vision to make moving goods easier for businesses with a focus on the customer. With one truck in his fleet, Acme Delivery Services Inc. was born.
About five years later, Happy sold his growing company to James E. Halbkat, more commonly known as “Tuck.” With Tuck’s Yale graduation behind him, he expanded ACME and created a framework for the organization.
When the company was purchased in the 80’s by current owner, Steve Coogler, the company was ready to enter a new phase of growth. Since then, ACME has grown along with our company and services. We now operate in Lexington and Charleston, SC with headquarters in Greenville, SC. As it was with Happy all those years ago, we maintain an unwavering commitment to our customers.
