Carolina Wholesale Group Acquires Gilpez Office Products
Carolina Wholesale Group of Charlotte, North Carolina, announced yesterday that it’s partnered with Gilpez Office Products in transitioning their day-to-day business operations to Arlington Industries due to their retirement.
“We have been trade partners with the Perez family for decades, have respected their business, and wish their family the best in the future,” stated Larry Huneycutt, president and owner of Carolina Wholesale Group. “We welcome their loyal dealers into our family and our team looks forward to enhancing their product selection and sales solutions in the coming months.”
Gilpez Office Products, located in Vista, Califormia, was owned and operated by Gil and Esther Perez, and their daughter Marielena Perez-Erickson. For more than 40 years, they were a family-owned company that prided itself on providing the best personal service possible to office machine dealers and office supply stores. Gilpez Office Products sold solely to office-imaging Arlington Industries is also privately owned business that has been serving dealers for the past 45 years and has maintained a close relationship with the Perez family and business for many decades.
