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.
National Material Pre-Testimonial
National Material has earned its prominent reputation from quality, performance, and innovation. We needed a Slitting Line that would offer our company just that, which is why we chose Red Bud Industries. Their proven track record of success with the advanced high strength materials and their innovative advancements in automation made them the perfect fit for this project.

“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.”

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.

“When we purchased a new Cut-To-Length Line a few years ago, we went with Red Bud. Because of our positive experience and our satisfaction with the first line, we decided to go with them when we bought our new Slitter. We needed a line that would allow us to process wider coils, heavier gage material, and produce a higher quality product. We also wanted a line that was safer to operate and we liked the new innovations and safety features Red Bud had developed. Now that it is installed, the line does everything we had hoped. We have already picked up new business. Red Bud’s personnel are easy to work with and are very cooperative.”
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.”
Ed Ryan, Thompson Steel Company
“We’ve purchased a number of Slitting Lines over the years. Although we have been satisfied with our selections in the past, when we purchased a new line, we went with Red Bud. Their line produces a high quality product, is user friendly, and easy to operate. In addition, it includes a number of unique innovations that allow quick push button Uncoiler to Recoiler threading and automatic strip nesting. Installation was straightforward and foundation requirements were minimal. Now that the line is in operation, we are equally impressed with its performance.”
