Shelby NC

Machine Builders and Design, a privately held company located in Shelby, NC, recognized the potential of the snack food industry early on and successfully carved out a niche in the biscuit cracker-manufacturing segment of the Snack Baking Industry. In 1974, Bud Mims started the company with the notion, “You have a problem? We’ll solve it, tell you how much it will cost, and guarantee the solution,” describes Darryl Mims, President of Machine Builders and Design, the early philosophy and success of the company.
