The Budd Group was founded by Richard Budd in 1963, when he purchased a struggling janitorial supply business and established the foundation for our organization to grow into a dynamic regional facility service corporation. Today, The Budd Group employs over 4,000 service professionals and offers a broad range of facility solutions for corporate customers throughout the Southeast.

Our core strength is our diverse community of professionals who manage and deliver our services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Although they have varied skill sets and backgrounds they are unified by Richard’s legacy of hard work, integrity and outstanding customer service. You have our commitment to provide great people, who deliver smart services, resulting in loyal customers.

As you get to know us, you will find:

  • We treat others the way we expect to be treated. We are legal, just, honest and ethical in our dealings with all customers, employees and vendors, and we expect the same from them.
  • We listen to our customers to understand their goals and objectives, so that we may help them do what they do best.
  • We integrate technology and innovation into our business for our customers' benefit.
  • We operate with our customers' best interests in mind, building lasting and mutually beneficial relationships.
  • We care about our employees: occupationally, financially, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
  • We recognize that everyone is created with certain strengths, gifts and aptitudes, and we provide career opportunities that appropriately match them.
  • We reward and recognize our employees for excellent performance.
  • We believe that to whom much is given, much is expected, and in return, we give our time, talent and treasures back to our communities.

As the leaders of The Budd Group today, we consider ourselves personally accountable for delivering these promises and continuing the legacy that Richard created. To ensure that we are doing so, we and all of our team members spend a significant amount of time with our customers, discussing their needs, making sure that we are meeting those needs and developing ways to add more value.

To our current customers, thank you for choosing The Budd Group as your partner. To our future customers, we look forward to meeting you and to the opportunity to add value to your business.

Dane Slaughter, Greenville-Spartanburg Airport District

I have worked with The Budd Group since 2011, and I have been very pleased and impressed with their staff, account managers, and regional support they provide. They have been very prompt to respond if there is an issue with the janitorial services. They provide an exceptional service and understand the importance of greeting our passengers and guests to allow them to have a wonderful experience when traveling. I view their service as a partnership and count on them daily to deliver exceptional quality to our tenants, passengers, staff, and business partners.

Guy Harley, Wake Forest University Health Sciences

The Budd Group provides exceptional custodial services for our campus. We are grateful for their service to our patients, families, visitors, staff and faculty for over 40 years. The Budd Group is very responsive to our requests and needs, and we truly believe in their loyalty and commitment to our success.

Billy D. Smith, Kershaw County School District

I personally have had the best experience and relationship with The Budd Group. From their owner all the way to their day porters, they take great pride in representing the company name, and doing the best job they can. During these unprecedented pandemic times The Budd Group has been flexible and responsive to the changing needs our district has had in every way. With every firm that we have used there have been issues, but no firm has ever been as responsive, and as quick to fix whatever the issue may be as The Budd Group!

Nick Mincey, Orange County Schools

The Budd Group has gone above and beyond in providing custodial services to our district. Following a lengthy RFP process, we as a committee selected them to help our district achieve a new and rejuvenating approach to campus cleaning and facility care. We asked them to take on a difficult task of staffing, and preparing schools for the start of our school year with only 6 weeks of transition time. We all knew it would be difficult at best. However, with the help of their Human Resources department and successful hiring strategies, we were up and running by the time our Staff members began to enter the campuses for the school year.

Blaise Winch, Capsugel

The Budd Group has been providing services to Capsugel for over 6 years. The service provided has been excellent and professional. They perform duties in multiple locations including a manufacturing plant, distribution center, office area, machine shop and fitness center. They clean all of the following types of areas at those various locations: office, bathroom, cafeteria, fitness center, locker room, shipping/receiving and CGMP production areas. As it relates to CGMP experience, they also created a sanitation program for the cGMP areas, maintain and created their own operating instructions, maintain document control and follow all cGMP guidelines for hygiene and documentation.

Susan A. Maddux, Presbyterian College

The Budd Group has become a true partner with Presbyterian College. They have taken the time to fully understand our mission and become a true part of the Blue Hose family. The housekeeping staff often pull off miracles when given very little time to clean a space on campus between events. They work long hours and respond 24/7 to emergencies on campus. The landscaping team has transformed the grounds of the campus such that the college regularly gets positive feedback from those who visit the campus. Before outsourcing to The Budd Group, the college performed these services in house. We have seen significant improvement in both housekeeping and grounds since The Budd Group took over.
