For 114 years, Birmingham Hide & Tallow has had one business philosophy: take care of your customers, and the rest will take care of itself.

We’ve followed the path laid down by our founders, and achieved a great deal of success.  So much, in fact, that the time has come to update our name a bit.

If you’re blessed to stay in business for over a century, it turns out you have some interesting things to deal with.

Take the proud name of our company, for example: Birmingham Hide & Tallow. As proud of it as we are, we’ve come to see that it just doesn’t describe who we are or what we do any more.

For starters, we now offer service in more than 20 states, not just one city. And, to be perfectly honest, it’s been quite some time since we’ve bought or sold any hides.

That’s why we’ve decided the time has come to change our name to something that’s more reflective of who we are, not who we were when we first began serving our customers more than a century ago.

Don’t worry. We’re keeping our industry-leading Customer Service. We’re just updating our name so it will be ready for the next generation of our family-owned company, and more in keeping with the wide range of things we do to meet our customers needs.

As we reflected on who we are, where we’ve come from and where we want our company to go, we also realized something else that we believe is very important.  Since the very beginning, we’ve been at the forefront of environmental responsibility.

In fact, you could say that we were green before green was cool.

Seventy years before the first Earth Day, we were already recycling. Long before anyone knew what greenhouse gasses were, Birmingham Hide & Tallow was helping to remove carbon from the environment. In fact, for every pound of carbon emissions our rendering plants create, we remove seven pounds from the environment.

As we begin doing business under our new name (and logo),  we pledge to you that we will continue to let our customer’s needs drive our business–just as we have for the last 114 years.

So, welcome to the new BHT ReSources. It’s going to be a great new century.
