All domestic manufacturing, warehousing and distribution activities for Budge Industries takes place in Henderson, Kentucky. This city, in proximity to major highway infrastructure, was selected for its logistically optimal geographic location. Henderson is about 50 miles south of Petersburg, Indiana, the 2010 official "median center" of the United States. This is the location through which a north-south line and an east-west line each divide the total population of the country in half, as determined by the U.S. Census Bureau. Driving time from our Henderson warehouses is within 5-6 hours to most major Midwest markets and within 24 hours of 80% of the top 10 U.S. markets.
Several years ago we implemented a fully integrated and automated Warehouse Management System (WMS) that delivers real-time automation to our manufacturing and distribution operations. Physical warehouse operations are faster and the risk of fulfillment error has been virtually eliminated. Billing and collection data flows seamlessly across the components of the integrated software system, simplifying and accelerating our Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and office processes. The system is so effortless, foolproof and efficient that we wonder how we managed without it! At the present time, our turnaround is generally within 48 hours for TL (truck load) and LTL (less than truckload) orders and less than 24 hours for most small package fulfillment.
We can also accommodate special orders via drop-ship fulfillment.
Home to our live, on-site customer service team that responds to the needs of our retailers/resellers and consumers– is located 25 miles north of Philadelphia in Lansdale, Pennsylvania.
