American Commercial Alcohol Corporation
In 1928, the American Commercial Alcohol Corporation was formed via a merger of the American Distilling Company, David Berg Industrial Alcohol Company (founded 1911 in Philadelphia), and the S.M. Mayer Alcohol Company (founded 1926 in Gretna, Louisiana.)

In the 1930’s, the American Commercial Alcohol Corporation operated plants in Pekin, Illinois; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Hoboken, New Jersey; and Sausalito, California. Interestingly, James Joseph “Gene” Tunney, former heavyweight boxing champion, actually served as the company’s Director for a period of time.
