1860年開業的ACME Whistle是英國 (或全世界) 現存歷史最悠久的哨子製造廠。百多年來，都在伯明翰的廠房以人手製造。
Mr. Joseph Hudson (即 ACME whistle 創辦人) 於1883年設計出 Metropolitan Whistle並於1884年將 Metropolitan作商標注冊及正式成為皇家警察裝備。現在所有刻有 “Metropolitan”的銀雞依然是由 ACME Whistle於英國 伯明翰的工廠製造。跟1884年出品如同一轍。銀雞獨特的聲響依舊令人立即聯想到警報和危險。ACME whistle 現在由第三代經營，繼續於英國伯明翰製造全球最出色哨子。
A CENTURY AND A HALF OF INNOVATION
In an age where electronic sounds predominate and are everywhere from the welcoming tone of your phone to the warning of your car locking system and the timer on your cooker. Everything is talking to you now. But requests for new whistles, simple, reliable, portable, independent of a power source, keep popping up. It is in our bloodstream to research and develop new solutions. Our reason for being is to offer a whistle, call or signal horn for every possible use and requirement.
In striving to offer the most advanced and most up to date sound solutions our past is our constant inspiration.
Inevitably with innovation as such a central driver of ACME, the product range was always going to expand. By 1930 our range had extended to just over 300 different whistles. Today commercial imperatives and changing demand have tailored the range to 83 products, here are just some in the ACME Hall of Fame.
