Special Gifts for a Special Anniversary for an Electronic Enclosure Leader

Much has changed in the electronic enclosure industry since Bud Industries was founded 90 years ago in 1928. At that time, in fact, we did not even manufacture enclosures, but our first product related to radio antennae. As our company has evolved, there is one thing that has never changed which is how Bud values the relationships that we develop with our various business partners. This was demonstrated recently at the Electronic Distribution Show in Las Vegas when two of our long term partners presented us with gifts in honor of our 90th Anniversary.

The Best Electronic Enclosure Product Selector Just Got Even Better

How can the best Electronic Enclosure Website be made even better?  Simply by making it even easier to use and more user friendly.  One of the best features of the Bud Industries website is the “search by size” widget that quickly and easily allows the specifier to find the perfect electronic enclosure from our offering of thousands of standard products.  It has just been upgraded to eliminate the sometimes balky “choose by size” sliders and replace them with open slots to quickly fill in the requested dimensions

Bud Industries’ PTQ Series – A great value in the most durable NEMA rated Electronic Enclosure

The PTQ series of plastic IP and NEMA rated electronic enclosure is one of Bud’s newest and most durable product lines.  In fact, if you check out the video, you can even see how it holds up when a car drives over it.  While that is not something that we recommend in daily use, the thinking is that if it can withstand that external pressure and weight, then it should provide superior protection for any electronic components.  The secret to its strength is a unique blend of polycarbonate and glass fibers.  With 10% fiber resin, it has the benefit of the flexibility and strength of polycarbonate with the added strength of the glass fibers.   If there is much more than 10% fiber, then the enclosure is more susceptible to cracking or shattering if hit.  They are UL508 NEMA 4x, and what makes these even more impressive is that they are rated at IP67 which means they can even be submerged for short amounts of time making them ideal for almost any application whether inside or out.

An Electronic Enclosure Company Celebrates the Best of America

An Antenna Eliminator

Bud Industries First Product

As we celebrate the Fourth of July Holiday week, I am brought back to what this holiday means for Bud Industries.  As a country of immigrants that promises opportunity for all, I think of my Grandfather’s story which reflects the true spirit of America.  Born in Hungary in 1896, his family was fortunate to be allowed to come to the United States when he was about 8 years old.  Raised in Cleveland, he was bright and ambitious.  He had various jobs, including working as a traveling salesman for the company that would be part of RCA, covering multiple states in the days when travel was a challenge.
