Making History since the 1940s

With a corporate history that traces back to the 1940s, Butler originally served the aviation industry exclusively. Chicago industrialist Paul Butler founded Butler in 1946. Recognizing a trend in aviation following World War II, Butler opened its doors at Midway Airport in the city of Chicago, at the time the busiest airport in the world. From then, the company went on to become the largest chain of FBOs in the world, covering the major cities of the US. During its history, Butler has supported the flight needs of many organizations and individuals, including US presidents, international government leaders, celebrities, major corporate executives, and airlines.

After recognizing other markets, the company quickly diversified, beginning with the 1964 purchase of International Transport, the largest oversize and overweight trucking company in the US. By the 1970s, Butler Service Group expanded its services technical services and additional value businesses. In 1968, the company was listed on the American Stock Exchange and later changed to NASDAQ in 1978. In 1987, Butler was sold to a US investment group.

In July 2009, Butler sold certain assets to Butler America, a privately held staffing and outsourcing solutions firm. Committed to customer service, Butler is optimally structured to provide Engineering Solutions, Telecom Solutions, Fleet Maintenance, IT / BPO Solutions and Global Solutions to companies worldwide through its distinct industry groups:

Aerospace Clean Technology Wind Energy Finance Health Care Government

The company continued its operations under the Butler America brand and retained much of the operational and on– the–ground talent from Butler International through the end of 2016.

Butler Today, Tomorrow and Beyond – Structured for Optimum Customer Service
