About Burgess Industries
The History of Burgess Industries - Designers of Automated Printing Plate Handling and Management
Over 30 years of combined innovation within 5 major Markets
Burgess Industries Inc. has been a privately-held “World Class” corporation, known for design and manufacturing of quality equipment and automation since 1977. We base our business approach on some very basic principles: innovation, craftsmanship, integrity, and service. The company’s “independent” culture and flexible structure is designed to empower its people to react quickly to changing market conditions in a much shorter cycle than larger corporate entities. This leads to early recognition of shifts in industry trends and positions us to design products that meet our customers changing needs more proactively, with focus on providing high-value, cost-justfied solutions. We have built a solid reputation on being more flexible and more responsive to our customers’ specific application challenges and needs as the industry changes.
For nearly 30 years, Burgess has designed equipment to enhance and maximize our customers' investment in technology through integration and automation, creating processes of predictable, repeatable and profitable results.
