Can I purchase ButlerŽ buildings direct from the manufacturer (self-erect) or do I need to purchase through my local builder?

I need a new grain bin, but I can't find anything on your Web site about them. Does Butler still make grain bins?
In order to focus on the more involved custom-engineered buildings in which we specialize, Butler sold the Grain Systems division to CTB, Inc. in June 1997.

I have an existing building in need of a new roof. Can you give me an estimate?
We can't provide you with an estimate online. However, Butler Builders and Roof Dealers are independent contractors authorized by Butler Manufacturing to distribute our products and services. They specialize in utilizing ButlerŽ roof systems in reroof and new construction applications. These systems include reroofing over existing metal and nonmetal roofs, slope-enhancing framing systems, and architectural standing-seam roofs. For an overview of Butler's roof systems product line visit (roof products), and for the name of your nearest Butler roof dealer please contact us at roofs@butlermfg.com.

I've heard that Butler has a nonprofit foundation. I am interested in applying for a grant from your foundation but am unable to find information about qualifications of organizations you fund.
The foundation's purpose is to provide sustained financial assistance to worthy charitable, educational, and health and welfare programs in the United States and to enhance the quality of life in those U.S. communities where Butler Manufacturing and its wholly owned subsidiaries operate facilities. The trustees recognize a direct responsibility to those communities where it has employees and significant capital investment. Likewise, Butler associates are encouraged to be actively involved in activities for the betterment of their local communities.

In considering the best interest of the company's employees, as well as the communities in which we do business, grants will be made to charitable activities which bear directly or indirectly on the activities and social environment of the company and the people with whom it interacts. For more information contact jcharmon@butlermfg.com.

How do I evaluate a ButlerŽ building against other types of construction systems? Our preference is Butler, but I need a method to evaluate all buildings. Can you help with any criteria?
Absolutely! Your Butler BuilderŽ can fully explain the Butler Difference or contact us.

I need a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for a Butler-supplied product. Where can I find it?
Your Butler BuilderŽ has easy access to all Material Safety Data Sheets for ButlerŽ products through the Butler AdvantageŽ computer software CD, or through MyBuilderNet™.

Is Butler Manufacturing a member of the MBMA?
Yes. We are proud to be a member of the Metal Building Manufacturers Association and are active in many committee functions.
