Red Bud Industries Plans Major Expansion Of Illinois Manufacturing Facility

Red Bud, IL - Red Bud Industries has announced plans for the major expansion of its manufacturing facility in Red Bud. The new 55,000 square foot addition will bring their total space at the facility to over 250,000 square feet.  Planned for completion in the Summer of 2022, the expansion will allow more equipment to be assembled and tested concurrently. The expansion will also help support a recently added Mazak i450HS lathe with robotic automation, the company’s 20th Mazak machine, and a new plasma cutting table.

“Despite all the difficulties associated with COVID and its interruption of our international sales, we are actually the busiest we have ever been in our 62-year history," said Kalin Liefer, Red Bud president. "When we examined our current workload and future orders, we really had no choice but to grow both our building and our team if we wanted to maintain the level of support our customers have come to expect.

“We have always had a little different mindset when it came to outsourcing," he continued. "By staying as vertically integrated as possible and performing everything from the design to construction to programming under one roof, we are able to guarantee the quality of each process and react immediately to our customers’ needs. Recently, that structure has also insulated us from the supply chain issues that are affecting others. The new building addition will help improve our efficiency and lead times even further.”
