It has been an exciting week here at Bud. We are installing a new Customer Relations Manager system (CRM), we have just installed a new second generation VOIP phone system, and have begun to enjoy the fruits of our new automated warehouse system. Change is all around us as we all seek advantages in this tight market to insure that we are able to be competitive, build the best products, and most of all, bring them to the market rapidly and efficiently.
When I think of change, I think about how many of our customers are involved with automating functions that allow the US to continue to be the most productive country in the world. I recently was involved with an account that creates products used in the dairy industry, automating milk production by tracking the flow of milk, the quality of milk, and the care of the livestock. One of their many products uses one of our NEMA 4 plastic boxes to protect these controls in the less than pristine environment that is a barn. Fully gasketed, manufactured from durable polycarbonate, the pn series of plastic enclosures is one of our top sellers due to the durability of plastic and the consistency of our stocking position. The combination of low price and high quality attracted them to our units and as their product has evolved over time, they have continued to use this box in their production process. We look forward to sharing with you many such product applications as we continue to learn that the demand for Bud product can be limitless.
