Carolina Chem-Strip Case Study
Carolina Chem-Strip Builds its Business with Pollution Control Burn Off Ovens.
Carolina Chem-Strip owner Ronnie Stallings' love of cars is what got his company off the ground. Eager to be involved in the automotive industry, he began helping area commercial finishers strip auto bodies for repainting. A short time later, when Honda opened a plant in nearby Swepsonville, NC, they asked Carolina Chem-Strip to clean their coating racks. "They were the first ones to make me think... paint racks, hmmmm," Stallings mused, "Painting, coating and finishing are pervasive in the manufacturing of all types of products." This thinking and Ronnie's natural ambition helped turn his small one-man shop into a multi-plant operation.
Pollution Control's manufacturing experience and thousands of satisfied customers is another big plus to Caroline Chem-Strip.
Carolina Chem-Strip's very first PCPC Burn Off Oven dramatically expanded the company's capacity at the outset. Today the company is equipped with 12 Pollution Control Burn-Off ovens and they're a big reason why Carolina Chem-Strip offers 24-hour turnaround to a wide variety of industries, including original equipment manufacturers, job shops, and the time-sensitive production lines of powder coaters and plastics processors. Their most recent oven acquisition was the largest manufactured to date by Pollution Control. Measuring 30 feet in length with a stripping capacity of over 2,600 cubic feet, this huge oven was originally designed to clean large oil field equipment and parts. At Caroline Chem-Strip it has become a major workhorse for large-volume stripping.
Today, the company offers full-service stripping with the motto: "All the stripping, all the shipping." Their Burlington, NC plant's stripping operation includes a 30,000-plus square foot shop. The company also has a 10,000 square foot fabrication shop to make parts, tooling and coating hangers. And their Fountain Inn, SC plant was built to service the needs of a nearby automotive manufacturing plant. When asked why he chose Pollution Control Burn-Off ovens, Stallings cites their unequalled service and manufacturing experience. He gives high marks to their Service staff, "They keep our ovens running. Pollution Control's manufacturing experience and thousands of satisfied customers is another big plus to Caroline Chem-Strip. Their reputation and knowledge of the marketplace have helped us build our business."
