Quality and Value that Satisfies
“Red Bud…has put us in position to grow our market share faster than the growth of the construction industry. We have been very pleased with the results.”
[Mike Petersen, CEO, Petersen Aluminum]
The first Mike Petersen had ever heard of Red Bud was at a NAAD board meeting many years ago. He heard a couple board members mention Red Bud’s Cut-To-Length Lines. Today, he owns a number of them himself. Over the last several years, they were experiencing growing demand across their product line and knew they also needed more slitting capacity. Hoping to find a high quality, high speed Slitter that met their needs was the challenge. Frankly, they didn’t think such a product existed. Enter Red Bud.
They bought and installed the first Red Bud Slitter in their Acworth, Georgia, plant and have since installed similar lines in each of their five plants. We currently have nine Red Bud Lines in total, and we have been very pleased with the results.

With Red Bud’s robust design, advanced technology, focus on safety, and terrific customer support, we knew partnering with Red Bud was the right choice. They delivered exactly what we needed.
[Luis Ignacio Villasenor, Director of Operations, National Material of Mexico]
NMM is a subsidiary of National Material L.P. which has a long history of quality and service dating back to 1946. Since its founding, National Material L.P. has grown to over 30 business units and is now one of the largest suppliers of steel in America. NMM is one of the largest Steel Service Centers in Mexico serving automotive, HVAC, home appliance, motor, and transformer manufacturers in Mexico.
When NMM started planning an expansion for its Monterrey facility, we needed a Slitting Line with specific capabilities and features able to handle the new generation of advanced high strength steel. Our search for a stronger, faster, and more capable Slitter led us to Red Bud Industries and their powerful line of equipment. Now that the line is operational, RBI technicians have been providing unparalleled 24/7 technical support, and we look forward to working with them in the future.

“With our Red Bud Equipment, we have processed up to 25 hot rolled and pickled steel coils per shift daily for 8 years now.”
Rudolf Flender, a manufacturer of premium tubular steel solutions, needed two key characteristics in a Slitting Line–superior dependability and unmatched productivity. Their Red Bud Industries’ Slitting Line has more than satisfied both of these requirements. Day after day, year after year, they continue to rely on their Red Bud Industries’ Slitting Line.
“The high reliability of the Red Bud Slitting Line and the quality of the products are complimented by excellent technical service and very quick delivery of spare parts. All this makes Red Bud Industries a strong partner for our company.”

The products and services we provide make our customers more competitive. That’s what Red Bud does for us as well.
Our sheet and plate customers are competitive if their steel is “table top” flat and stays that way after processing. We once thought that meant a temper mill, but the Stretcher Leveler is a far better value. Today, we operate four Red Bud Stretcher Leveler CTL Lines at three facilities. We can supply a customer from any one of these facilities knowing they will get the same consistent, high quality product from those lines; just as Red Bud delivers the same consistent, high quality technology and support to us, day-in and day-out, year-after-year.

When it comes to slitting technology, Red Bud is in a class by itself. And Red Bud support is world class too.
Ten years ago, we decided to enter the slitting business. We evaluated all slitter suppliers and saw that Red Bud clearly had the best technology – safety, set ups, throughput – they were top of the class. And no one else offered a 5 year warranty.
The decision to go with Red Bud has really paid off. The line is durable, accurate and Red Bud keeps us updated with new features they develop that make it perform even better. And you can’t ask for more responsive support. Anyone looking for a slitter would do well to talk to Red Bud.

TOM BORIACK, CURTIS STEEL COMPANY, LTD.
“The time had come for us to replace some older processing lines. We needed a new line that could increase our production efficiency and processing capacity as well as improve the quality of the products we deliver to our customers. We felt that a Red Bud Multi-Blanking Line was exactly what we needed. No other line can match the speed, flexibility, and reliability of a Red Bud.
Our new Red Bud Line has done everything that we’ve asked of it. Our sales force is now able to pursue orders from a variety of different industries with the confidence of knowing our processing equipment will be able to produce it within tolerance and without limits. We also have the added comfort of knowing Red Bud’s terrific service and extensive parts supply will keep us running and serving our customers.”
FRANK C. PFIRMAN, MATANDY STEEL & METAL PRODUCTS
“I have to admit when we looked at Red Bud’s Line, we were skeptical at first. However, after comparing what we got with their line, we realized we would get more ‘bang for the buck’. RBI’s personnel also gave us a very good feeling.
Now that the new line is up and running, I have to say we are extremely pleased with every aspect of the startup process. We are sure we made the right choice and highly recommend Red Bud to anyone looking to purchase a new line. The system produces a superior product, and our operators learned to run the line quickly. In addition to running prime material, the line has also proven its ability to significantly improve secondary material with its Multi-Strand Leveling System. Not only are we satisfied with the results, we are quite impressed.”
