Carolina Wholesalers Combining Business to Form ‘Super Distributor’
Carolina Wholesale Group, the parent company of Arlington Industries, Carolina Wholesale Office Machines, and Digitek announced today that on January 1, 2019 the two companies will be combining all three distribution brands to form ARLINGTON.
According to the two companies, the combination of sales and marketing forces, distribution network, and programs will provide resellers of these three strong brands more focused resources and programs.
Carolina Wholesale Group purchased Arlington Industries in 2004 and Digitek Computer Products (now Digitek) in 2016. CWG previously retained separate branding and independent sales teams in place to support each company’s strengths. While doing this over the past 15 years, CWG has combined product selection, distribution centers, and most internal operations to strengthen each brands offering to their partners. Now the new ARLINGTON will combine the strengths of each brand into one “super-distributor” that can provide enhanced offering of solutions, services, and programs to their resellers in focused single-brand partnership with their resellers.
“We are excited to bring a more-focused approach to our channel and address the needs of our reseller partners in more unified manner as ARLINGTON,” states Larry Huneycutt, owner and president of Carolina Wholesale Group. “While our new combined brands will provide more robust, focused offering of services to our resellers, we will continue to uphold the high standards of service and integrity our customers and vendors have come to expect from us.”
The current employees of Arlington Industries, Carolina Wholesale, and Digitek will comprise the workforce behind the new ARLINGTON. “Our top priority is making the new Arlington brand a smooth transition for our current employees, resellers and partners. We believe our customers will benefit immediately from combination of our talented employees and the new programs we’ll be introducing in 2019,” added Huneycutt.
