Young Guns of MDNA, Meet John Butz

Meet Resell CNC’s CEO and Chairman of the MDNA Southern Regional Chapter, John Butz. John’s hardworking, dedicated work ethic allows him to not only run day-to-day operations of his own business, but also sit on two MDNA committees and the Board of Directors. While being heavily involved in the MDNA and his own business, he manages to set aside time to spend with his wife, Chay Butz, and his two beautiful children, Maiori and Alex.

John was introduced to the machinery industry early in life when his father worked for Siegler Machine and Tool in Milwaukee, WI and Machinery Systems Inc. in Chicago, IL between the 70’s and 80’s. Although he grew up around machinery, John did not officially enter the business until the early 90’s. As he made the move to Florida, John began working for a Mazak distributor selling new and used machinery.

In 2007, John had a vision and embarked on a new journey with a new purpose, starting Resell CNC. Resell CNC is a full stocking used CNC dealer that provides many different custom solutions including end user sales, online and on-site auctions, service and repair, storage and logistics. Since its doors opened, the company is still growing and continuously invests in its team and technology. Today, Resell CNC is made up of 25 team members in two locations in Phoenix and Orlando, helping serve customers nationwide. With the addition of Resell CNC Auctions and the unique auction platform, the company has become a trusted, reliable source for all manufactures in the industry.

“At Resell CNC, our mission is to help manufactures solve problems by creating an innovative platform to buy and sell machinery and equipment enabling our customers to be competitive and profitable in the global market.” – John Butz

Most recently, Resell CNC became the only used machinery dealer in North America that can provide used and demonstration machines from Mazak with a factory warranty, installation, and training.

“My years of experience with Mazak have led to us helping Mazak with their loaner, demo, off lease, used and trade-in machines. We are extremely pleased to be working with an industry leader such as Mazak.” – John Butz

John’s schedule is certainly a busy one, but he does enjoy the times during the year that he can take to explore and vacation with his family. Along with traveling, John has a passion for adventure and enjoys physically challenging himself. He recently participated in an Ironman 70.3 in Coeur D’Alene ID where he swam 1.1 miles, biked 56 miles, and ran 13.1 miles. After all his time spent with travels, family, adventure and business, John makes it a must to schedule one exotic fishing trip a year to enjoy with his friends.
