NEW LOOK, SAME SHIPP BELTING
As we celebrate our 80th year in business, Shipp Belting is taking on a new look. It’s a big change for us, but what hasn’t changed is the integrity, quality and service Shipp has always been known for. Now, we’re building an even brighter future on the foundation of the storied history of Shipp Belting.
THE YEAR WAS 1938…
…and Dale Edward (D.E.) Shipp knew that in Waco, as machines hummed steadily along, factories showed strong indications of what was to come: Progress.
During World War II, belting manufacturers were forced to make black rubber for the war effort. The belting industry had a need for white food grade belting. Dale Shipp formed a buying group with four other companies across the country. They showed enough buying volume for white belting to be produced. While Mr. Shipp was building the company, he died suddenly in 1952, and his stepson, Bill Ogden, became president.
Bill Ogden’s broad industry, product/application knowledge and business insight further developed Shipp Belting. As the third generation owner, Greg Ogden continues to advance Shipp Belting with honesty and integrity as its foundation.
Fast forward to today. Though the landscape of industry has transformed over the past 80 years, some things never change. Shipp Belting has maintained its region-wide presence as your premier, customer-focused partner. Still the same family-owned and run business, Shipp Belting is trusted by many to provide conveyor belting solutions, motorized pulleys, rollers and more, all while offering expertise and family-first service. At Shipp Belting, we know that you aren’t slowing down. We’re here to keep you moving in the right direction.
