Kings Mountain, NC, United States, 2009/02/04 - Southern Industrial Constructors and Southern Crane, full-service industrial contractors, have appointed Carmen Farbo business developer for the companies’ Kings Mountain / Charlotte location.
In his new position, Farbo will identify new business opportunities and help manage existing customer relationships, said David Currier, general manager for Kings Mountain.
Southern Industrial Constructors and Southern Crane significantly expanded their presence in the Charlotte metropolitan / I-85 business corridor recently when they acquired the Kings Mountain-based Gibson Industrial Services. Gibson brought to Southern Industrial additional capabilities in optical alignment services, millwright and rigging, and plant relocation.
Prior to joining Southern Industrial, Farbo worked in a similar capacity for AME, Inc. and Universal Industrial. He is a graduate of General Electric’s Apprentice Program.
“Carmen has more than 25 years of experience providing and selling rigging, millwright and plant maintenance services to manufacturing and process industries, so he is extremely knowledgeable about our clients’ needs and how we can help them succeed,” Currier said. “We are pleased he has joined the Southern Industrial family.”
After more than 46 years of business, Southern Industrial Constructors and Southern Crane have made “Working Together Safely” the cornerstone of their operations. The companies serve as industry and community leaders, taking pride in providing their services with safety, integrity, quality workmanship and responsive customer care.
Founded in 1962, Southern Industrial provides a wide range of services throughout the Southeast, including turnkey industrial construction, industrial electrical construction, turnkey plant installations and relocations, rigging, millwright and machinery moving services, process and utility piping, precision concrete construction, structural and specialty steel fabrication and erection, and complete plant maintenance services.
Southern Crane (southernindustrial.com) provides state-of-the-art crane and rigging services, and has been a leader in a national safety movement to encourage the certification of all crane operators. All of Southern Crane’s operators are CCO certified.
