Arch Hanley started Acme Electric in 1945 performing radio and appliance service. In 1952, seeing that television was the future of home electronics, Acme Electric became Acme TV. The price of a television in 1952 was almost 1/2 the price of the average car! In order to make televisions accessible to everyone, Arch started our very unique Acme Purchase Program which continues to this day.
Joined by his son in the 1970s, two generations of Hanleys began to grow the same business. With the introduction of microcomputers in 1978, Acme TV became Spokane's first computer store. Recently joined by a third generation of Hanleys, Acme continues to provide the best value in rentals, service, and sales.
Now in its 3rd generation Acme is the Inlands Northwest premier home technology firm. We are the areas only full service integration firm with a large array of services. Home Cinema, whole house audio, security, central vac, lighting control, Hvac control, irrigation control, tv, phone, networking and remote control solutions. We also offer complete project design services and project management.
2008 was a very exciting year for us we aquired three competitors. Audio Connections, Audio Video Innovations and Audio Plus. These additions have helped Acme secure its position in the market as the leader. So far in 2009 we have branded the following trade names and websites Spokane Home Theater, Sandpoint Home Theater, CDA Home Theater and Tri Cities Home Theater.
