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 four years later. Bill’s belief that, “The person on the other end of the phone is our customer” has been our guiding principal for over 60 years.  Today, Bill’s son, Art, is the president of ACI, overseeing the direction and mission of the company.
