A Brief History of ACI

Based in one of the oldest buildings in historic downtown Janesville, ACI began serving businesses throughout the Midwest in 1955.  In 1961, W.O. (Bill) Eklund joined ACI and purchased the business in 1965. Bill’s belief that, “The person on the other end of the phone is our customer” has been our guiding principal for over 65 years.  Today, Bill’s son, Art, is the president of ACI, overseeing the direction and mission of the company.
