Who We Are

Whether You Need Something Repaired or Completely Designed from an Idea, We Will Do Everything We Can to Make Your Vision a Reality.

Welcome to Budde Enterprises, Inc., owned by the Bill Budde family. When Bill purchased the farm in March of 1965, he could never have imagined how much it would grow. Without the help and dedication of his wife, daughters, employees and friends, it would not be what it is today.

Influenced by his father to know when downtime meant the difference between getting the crop in or missing the harvest before a hail storm, a working relationship with companies like the railroad only seemed natural. At Budde Enterprises, our goals are preventative maintenance, efficiency, reliability and safety, so we utilize every rainy day we can. We owe a great deal to the many of you that have helped design and modify these projects. We would also like to thank all those whose vehicles we service.

...They are awesome...

We got the carts hooked up and everything switched over. They are awesome. I appreciate it very much.  It’s a big upgrade. I also got the floor mats, and they fit his truck perfect. Again, thanks for everything and let Rusty know the carts are fantastic. Jamie Vannoy, BNSF Railway
