“Working in a production brewery means we have a lot of moving parts. Sometimes parts break down and need to be replaced on the fly. That’s why it’s good to have someone like BDS in your corner. Fast turnaround times, plenty of stock on the shelves and a team that’s willing to go above and beyond to make sure the customer stays up and running. This, coupled with their reasonable pricing, is what makes them one of the most competent and reliable distributors that we use at Yards Brewing Co.”

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for getting us out of trouble last Saturday night with the 60 inch conveyor belt, we were back up and running in less than an hour. I can always count on you and your team at any time of the day. Thanks again for a job well done.“

“For about 40 years, I’ve worked in the mechanical industry and close to retirement. I would like to reach out to Senior Management of BDS. In the 30 years that I have been dealing with BDS from the Souderton, Quakertown, and more recently, the Philadelphia office. Your associate has helped me in so many ways over the years, especially in emergency repairs. I’d like to recognize a few of your associates, Rebecca Marcen, Joyce Pakstis, Leo Romanec, Frank O’Toole, John Glatts, Chris and Frank Marolla. At this time I would like to thank all of the BDS employees for their help over the years.”

“You have always been a great asset to Dayton Superior. We can always depend on BDS for prompt delivery of our day to day power transmission and MRO items.” “One particular opportunity that you recently solved for us was when our Parker Compumotor drive system for our Slab Bolster machine failed. We gave you the project turnkey to upgrade the drive system, mechanical retrofit new motors and gearboxes, as well as upgrade the entire electrical panels with new PLCs, starters and wiring. Tom Orr did an excellent job converting our old program to a complete system integration. Machine was up and running in a few weeks.”

Thanks again for everything,

“First and foremost is your customer service - second to none. I don’t know how many times over the years (you have been coming in here for 20-25 years) that I have had a breakdown in the middle of the night or on a weekend that you were willing to take a phone call, run over to the shop, pull a part off the shelf, and deliver it…”

“During the past 25 years or so, during my career in Production and Facility-Utility Operations and Maintenance in Pharmaceuticals and Foods manufacturing, the one company that has been by my side the entire way is BDS, formerly BDU. Problem solving, parts acquisition, and relentless customer care is their forte.”
"Your emergency becomes their's and you can rest assure BDS will do whatever needs to be done to get it done quickly and correctly, any time day or night."
