Red Bud Industries recently honored Tim Roarty at a celebration of his retirement at The Pour Vineyard with many of his RBI friends and family in attendance.

Roarty was a sales engineer with Red Bud Industries for over 30 years. He knew nothing of the coil processing industry when he applied for the sales position in November 1987, but it didn’t take him long to learn the equipment and the industry. Roarty started at a time when the first stretcher leveler was being built, as well as the first multi-cut slitter. Roarty recognized the importance of developing relationships with customers, and he did just that. Roarty built a great base of customers and developed lasting relationships with them. In the time that Roarty was with RBI, he sold over $131 million worth of equipment.
