Who We Are

Our History

Aactus was founded in 1979 as Budget Staple Company in Livonia, Michigan. At that time, our main product line was industrial fasteners and related products. We supplied businesses primarily in our local area. 

The company founder retired in 2014. Two seasoned entrepreneurs bought the business and, along with a long-term senior manager already in place, took over operations, each of them bringing more than 25 years of experience in industrial products to the company.

Under new leadership, we’ve experienced great growth. Our offerings have expanded to include tens of thousands of products and services, which enable us to meet the needs of a rapidly growing customer base.

Today we serve businesses throughout Michigan and Northern Ohio in a wide spectrum of industries including automotive, metal working, general manufacturing, moving & storage, construction, food manufacturers, agriculture and retail.

A New Name

In 2017 we changed our name.  Budget Staple Company no longer accurately reflected the breadth of our products and services. 

We chose Aactus, from the root “actus,” which means drive, determination, perseverance and performance, the qualities that best reflect the commitment we feel to our customers. 

We designed our new logo to illustrate the concept that more than one path exists to arrive at a destination. With innovative thinking, fanatical determination and a passion for excellence, we engineer superior solutions for our customers.

Our Mission

We seek to improve our customers’ bottom line by offering expert advice on industrial supplies, carrying products that deliver excellent value and providing an unmatched level of service, on-time, the first time.

The Aactus Team

Each member of our core team has more than 25 years of experience in working with tapes & adhesives, packaging materials and other essential industrial products and supplies. We encourage you to rely on our expertise – ask us questions, request solutions and tell us about your unique applications. We’re here for you.
