1993

The story of the current „Acme Grupė“ group of companies began in 1993. Three students of Vilnius University Kaunas Faculty of Humanities, namely Stede Ingram, Tomas Palšis and Stepas Telešius, started their business while offering courses of English language. One of them was teaching English language while the others were looking for clients.

1994

While being active and creative people the founders of „Acme Grupė“ expanded their activities in 1994 and started a new business – import and distribution of magnetic storages (for audio and video) in Lithuania. As the competition in this area increased, it was decided to start producing video tapes instead of importing them, and this was a beginning of „Acme Europe“.

1996

In 1996 as the business of „Acme Europe“ expanded, a subsidiary in Latvia was created. Currently „Acme Europe“ is one of the largest producers of IT accessories and energy saving lamps in Central and Eastern Europe.

1997

In 1997 the activities of „Acme“ expanded even more – the company entered the business of retail and distribution of computer parts.

1998

In 1998 operations of retail and distribution of computer parts were separated from „Acme“ and a new company „Acme“ kompiuterių komponentai (currently known as „ACC Distribution“ was created. The business of this company was so successful that the local market became too skimpy – it was decided to expand it into foreign countries: Latvia (1998), Estonia (2005), Georgia (2006), Armenia (2011) and Belarus (2011).

1999

In 1999 Žilvinas Naujokas – one of the most famous Lithuanian cinema producers – came back to Lithuania from the United States of America with a business idea to distribute films. At the end of that year the first movie (Vampires) was shown in Lithuanian cinema theatres – this marked the beginning of „Acme Film“ business.
In 2007 the company was managing Senasis trestas and Planeta cinema theatres. The company is engaged in the business of distribution of film production of the biggest movie studios in the world. As the economic situation in Lithuania and other Baltic countries improved, more and more cinema theatres opened in the region.
„Acme Film“ expanded its business accordingly – in 2004 it established a subsidiary in Latvia and in 2007 another subsidiary started its operations in Estonia.
