Budnick Converting, Inc. - THE Unique Family Business
When you think of UNIQUE Family businesses, Budnick Converting, Inc. should be right at the top of the list! Ed (Bud) Schwartz, who is 93, started the business over 50 years ago and is still in the office daily. His daughter, Ann, is now the President and CEO. She has seen the company grow from 4 employees to over 100 as it slowly became an industry leader in the specialty converting and distributing of adhesive backed flexible material. In other words, Tape. That's right, Budnick's unique business is TAPE!
Doesn't sound unique... Until you visit their plant and realize they slit it to any width down to paper thin, print it with any message or bar code, laminate it to other materials, die cut it with tooling, laser and water-jet cut it to any shape you can imagine, spool wind it to any length a customer might require, and they have literally thousands of specialty tape products that consumers would never know even existed!
Budnick inventories master rolls (60" x 2,000 - 5,000 yards) of 15 different cloth tapes, aluminum, copper and lead foil tapes, hundreds of double sided tapes, colored tapes and many different film tapes, just to name a few! They purchase tape from the "BIG NAMES" in the industry (3M, Saint-Gobain, tesa tape, Permacel, Intertape, Scapa, Avery Dennison, DeWal, Tyco and Main Tape) along with several other manufacturers.
While they can't name the thousands of uses, they will note that specialty tapes are used on the car you drive, cell phones, lap tops, PCs and electronic games you use and even the aircraft you fly, including the space shuttle! Thousands of companies in the electronics, transportation, specialty industrial, medical and distribution markets rely on Budnick to custom-convert their flexible materials. They also rely on Budnick to conduct focused process reviews of their production lines to make sure they save material costs and production time. Many customers also take advantage of Budnick’s prototyping services to create precise die cut pieces in real-time.
Budnick has also developed an industry-leading adhesive tape search engine, TapeInfo. This tool allows users to cut sourcing time from days to minutes by instantly searching over 10,000 major brand tapes. They compiled adhesive tape information from all the major manufacturers and developed the industry’s fastest and most user-friendly tape search engine. Budnick invests so much time and energy into creating user-friendly conveniences for its customers because it is a customer focused corporation. This dedication to customer satisfaction & quality assurance is prevalent throughout their company culture. It is ingrained in every single Budnick employee that the customer is ALWAYS right.
