Udderly Innovative! with Bill Kennedy, Jr., President, Redex Industries, Inc.
Redex Industries, Inc., a family-owned and operated business in Salem, Ohio, is better known by its flagship product Udder Cream. Originally a Vaseline-based cream used by dairy farmers to treat chapped and cracked cow udders, Bill’s father, a pharmacist, saw an opportunity. Bill, Sr. tinkered with the formula to make it less greasy. Soon farmers were using it on their livestock and the farmers’ wives were using it on their hands. The product took off, is sold in the U.S., Canada and internationally, and is known for its signature black and white spotted labels. Come hear Bill’s story of how his father founded the company and the family is continuing to build it!
