Buck’s Fabricating manufactures roll-off containers. for multiple industries, including energy and mining.. • Hadley, Pa. “It’s rewarding to see the products people made here doing their jobs out in the field.” // MATT WILSON, president and owner [ BY ALAN DORICH ] After 34 years, Buck’s Fabricating (a division of Deist Industries Inc. since 1993) has enjoyed success by listening closely to its customers, President and owner Matt Wilson says. “[We try to discover] what issues our customers are facing, what opportunities are there for them, [and go] back to our team and say, ‘Are there products we PROFILE can provide to make their work day easier?’” he says. The Hadley, Pa.-based firm specializes in manufacturing roll-off containers for multiple industries, including energy and mining, construction and demolition, municipal and solid waste, and scrap metal. Wilson notes that Buck’s originally started operations 34 years ago as a small auto body shop with a small staff. Over time, the company branched out into manufacturing waste containers and complex truck bodies and systems. “In the last few years, we’ve been supplying various sealed and specialty waste containers that are used in the energy and mining industries,” he says. Today, Buck’s employs a staff of 70 and is part of Deist Industries Inc., a holding company also based in Hadley. Wilson says Buck’s philosophy of listening closely to its clients has paid off for the firm. “It really shows in our relationships with our long-term customers,” he says, noting that 90 percent of the company’s work is for repeat clients, including Adler Tank Rentals, Veolia Water and McCutcheon Enterprises Inc. PASSION FOR THE BUSINESS Wilson has been with Buck’s since 2006 and became its owner in 2010. Previously, he worked in accounting and finance for the energy practice of Ernst & Young in Houston, working in and around many energy companies throughout the country. He says he savors the work at Buck’s. “For one, I enjoy building things,” he says. “Manufacturing is something I have a passion for.” Buck’s Fabricating. | 2011 sales: Approximately $17 million Headquarters: Hadley, Pa. | Employees: 70 | Products: Roll-off containers 132
