Buyken employee Chris Hodges (from the shipping and receiving department) was the lucky winner of two tickets for the Seahawk playoff game against the Panthers. Chris and his wife Jessica enjoyed the game from the Buyken charter seats and cheered on the home team to yet another NFC Championship and Super Bowl trip.
Go Hawks! And “Go Buyken!” for supporting the local teams and sharing the spirit with their staff.

Since Mark DeLaurenti owns the company, it seems fitting to start with him for our first employee profile. Mark has worked for Buyken for 37 years. I asked him about the highlight of his tenure. His response was ‘buying Fab-Tech and Mechanical Products’. Taking the position of removing some competitors was a strategic and effective move that allowed us to increase our customer base.
Looking toward the future and growth, his vision is to continually upgrade machinery and employ the latest technological advances in metal fabrication. This vision will help Buyken remain competitive and proficient so we offer the best service to our customers.
Mark, and Buyken, have participated in the Children’s Ride for the last 11 years. This event benefits Children’s Hospital in Seattle. This year, their 18th year, Buyken is a Title Sponsor.
Buyken was founded in 1939 by Frank Buyken as a tool & die shop. It was called Buyken Machine Works. In 1972, he sold it to Marty DeLaurenti, who added production capabilities and re-named it to Buyken Stamping & Machine Works, Inc. Several years later, he re-named the company to Buyken Industries, Inc. In January of 1996, Mark DeLaurenti purchased the company and re-branded it to Buyken Metal Products, Inc. Mark still owns it today and we have just implemented a full re-branding campaign which includes this new website.
