Family owned

Over 70 years ago, Al Budding opened a shop in Chicago, where he practiced the art of stainless steel finishing until his retirement. This vision has bridged from the Budding Family to the Kuipers Family, where today Todd and his son Daniel Kuipers continue to sustain the company’s history and provide high quality customized results in the metal polishing & finishing industry.
