Carolina Handling has opened a new 82,508 sqft. (7,700 sqm) facility in Fairburn, Georgia with the ribbon-cutting celebration attended by associates, elected officials and local businesspeople.

The new building in Fairburn Business Center positions Carolina Handling to better serve the metro Atlanta area where many of its customers are located and strengthens support for more than 100 technicians who are part of the company's Georgia service team.

The new Fairburn facility is more than double the size of Carolina Handling's former Tucker, Georgia location where the Charlotte-based company has operated an Atlanta branch for almost 40 years.

The new facility in South Fulton County features much larger warehouse and shop space, and a state-of-the-art training and meeting space, according to Mike Gainor, executive vice president of sales.
"Fairburn will be a distribution hub for us in the southern part of our territory," says Gainor. "Here, we'll be able to bring equipment in, prep it, get it staged and out the door to our customers in Alabama, Georgia and Florida. It will streamline our logistics process moving forward."

The Fairburn facility also places Carolina Handling at the centre of one of the fastest-growing industrial areas in the Southeast.

"Finding a location that was right off Interstate 85, close to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and in proximity to hundreds of our customers was very important," Gainor explains. "Once we found this area in Fairburn, we knew this was the right spot for us."

Founded in 1966, Carolina Handling operates branch offices in Atlanta, GA; Birmingham, AL; Greensboro, NC; Raleigh, NC and Greenville, SC and an equipment distribution centre in Piedmont, SC.
