About Acme Vial & Glass Company

Acme Vial and glass has proudly manufactured vials here in the United States of over 70 years. In 1942 Charles V. Knowles decided to start a little business manufacturing and selling glass vial out of his California garage. Three generations later we are still family owned and operated and committed to providing our customers with superior customer service, top quality vials and competitive prices. Acme Vial currently operates out of a large, modern facility in Paso Robles and has become a well-respected manufacturer of tubular glass vials worldwide.
