Benda Manufacturing is celebrating 30 years in business. The Tinley Park, Ill.-based manufacturer builds conveyor systems and controls for specialty markets, including food processing, contract and OEM packaging, and pharmaceutical.

The Benda family incorporated the manufacturing company that bears their name on April 1, 1986 with a 1,200-square-foot facility in Lockport, Ill. In the beginning, George Benda handled sales and engineering while his wife Shirley managed all parts ordering and accounting. After working day jobs, the couples six sons would come into the shop and build the conveyor equipment.
Today, the Benda family has ushered in a new era of innovation for the company by marketing complete system solutions equipped with robotic and automation control. All six sons remain executives of the company which has grown to more than 50 employees, and includes an on-staff team of mechanical, electrical and robotic engineering experts. Benda installations span the globe. Conveyor systems meet USDA, FDA, 3A Dairy, BISSC and UL standards.
"From day one as an entrepreneur your focus is survival and growth. Were very proud of our longevity," said Benda Mfg. President Terry Benda. "You dont spend a lot of time thinking about what your company will look like 30 years down the road. So when you get there and think about all the customers youve helped, it is really rewarding. Many of our original customers are still with us and have become lifelong friends."
Still, with all the milestones over the past three decades, the companys founding values remain intact: a corporate culture emphasizing respect and compassion, teamwork that maximizes individual and company potential, customer-centric thinking, pursuit of the most innovative solutions, and a healthy work-life balance.
Benda Mfg. has long been proud of its made-in-America roots. Even machine parts used by the company for its product handling systems are sourced from American-owned companies. "When we buy American, were helping to support other families and their local and state economies," said Terry Benda.
