About History & Mission

Mission

The Budd Group strives to be a God-honoring company of excellence that safely delivers facility support solutions to meet our customers' needs, offers development opportunities for our employees and contributes to our community.

History

The Budd Group had its beginnings in 1963, when Richard Budd purchased a struggling janitorial supply company in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Under Budd’s guidance and leadership, the company eliminated its debt in four years and began a pattern of steady, customer-focused growth that continues today.

In the 1970s, The Budd Group expanded into carefully chosen markets, adding janitorial, maintenance and landscaping services to our lines of business. Until the late 1980s, nearly all of the company's revenue came from clients in North Carolina, but The Budd Group made a pivotal turn in 1988 by broadening and diversifying its operations across the entire Southeast.

Today, The Budd Group employes more than 4,000 dedicated associates and delivers custom facility solutions to an extensive range of industries across the Southeast.
