Four companies have merged to form SouthernCarlons, an organization that will serve fastening and packaging businesses. The companies are Carlson Systems, Omaha, NE; Kentec, Snellville, GA; Southern Fastening Systems, Muscle Shoals, AL; and Duo-Fast Carolinas, Charlotte, NC.
SouthernCarlson will have corporate offices in Omaha, NE, and Muscle Shoals, AL, with more than 140 locations in 34 states.
Bringing these individual regional leaders together was an easy decision, according to SouthernCarlson President Jim Whitley, who said, “When we started looking at each of our businesses individually, we realized the common thread was service. No matter what we sold, we all realized that if you consistently deliver exceptional service to the customer, you will keep that customer for life.”
