Conveying Progress: Introducing Benda Manufacturing and Its History
Benda Manufacturing isn’t a new company; its innovative industrial conveyor solutions have served industries from food and beverage to packaging and pharmaceuticals since 1986.
And it’s a family-run organization. Founded by Greg Benda, all six of his sons continue their involvement with Benda Manufacturing today. To kick off the first episode of Conveying Progress, Greg Benda, President of Benda Manufacturing, spoke with host Tyler Kern about the Benda Manufacturing journey and some of the exciting topics he’s looking forward to discussing on the show.
“We started (in 1986) as a simple conveyor manufacturer with goals of providing our customers with solutions for getting products from point A to point B,” Benda said. “Since then, we’ve grown into an automation manufacturer supplying robots or any automation our customers need to get their product through the line and out the door.”
Benda said his company’s need to develop more and more automated solutions grew out of customer need. In their early days as a company, a major area hospital approached Benda Manufacturing to design a system that would read labels on testing vials.
“They would do thousands and thousands of different types of blood tests every day,” Benda said. “So, we successfully designed a system that achieved the goal. It read every vial and placed it in a lane in a corresponding way for the test in the lab.”
Benda quickly learned that creating automated solutions for customers would not be a one-off deal from this early project.
What types of topics and issues do Benda look forward to exploring in future episodes of Conveying Progress?
“We’re excited about introducing all our customers to collaborative robotics,” Benda said. “We’ll be moving into 3D printing in the future. Internet of Things is on the horizon for a lot of companies.”
There are a lot of great things to look forward to in upcoming discussions.
