Acme Industries was a company based in New Brentford on Earth. They manufactured the Disinfectodroids, which teleported garbage to another planet against the wishes of the inhabitants. The Tenth Doctor reprogrammed the robots to send the garbage back to the company's headquarters in the hope that it would change their corporate policy. (COMIC: The Germ War)
Behind the scenes Edit
The Acme Corporation originated in the Looney Tunes series of cartoons, with a running gag featuring their products backfiring, often on Wile E. Coyote. It has since become a bit of a generic title in comic stories and the like for a corporation.
