Technology® began manufacturing tin-tie closure application
equipment in 1992. From 1992 to 1998 this division of Bedford
Industries® continued to grow. Due to this growth Bedford
Technology® was able to branch off on its own, and Bedford
Technology®, LLC resulted. We started off with 20 employees,
most of whom had been employed with Bedford Industries®. We
were able to bring along with us engineers, designers, sales personnel,
office staff, skilled machinists, experienced machine assembly
personnel, and a top notch electrical staff that includes an electrical
engineer and technicians. In November of 1998 we moved to our
new facilities. We continue to design and manufacture reclosable
packaging and bundling systems.
The size of
our workforce has grown to 40 full, and part-time employees. We
have a fully equipped, high-tech machine shop, which includes
a CNC lathe and CNC mill. Not only do our machinists make all
the parts needed for our own reclosable packaging and bundling
equipment, they also take on parts machining for outside customers.
With help from our engineering and design staff we are able to
keep the machine shop busy with customized jobs for companies
in the surrounding area.
research and testing, the manufacture of Bedford
Plastic Timbers® began in 1990. In 1998 when Bedford Technology®,
LLC moved to its new facilities at 2424 Armour Road the manufacturing
and sales of Bedford Plastic Timbers® also moved to these
new facilities to allow for continued growth - and boy did we
grow! The growth we have experienced in the plastic timber area
since that time has been nothing short of phenomenal. In order
to cut down on long lead times, and to provide our customers with
the best service possible, a new state of the art production line
was added to the lumber area in February of 2000.
Designs, a subsidiary of Bedford Technology®, LLC
was established in 2002. They create and manufacture some of the
most stylish yet functional outdoor recycled plastic furniture
in the industry. The environmentally friendly products include
standard and ADA compliant picnic tables, benches, and seats.
