ARLINGTON 50th Anniversary

Join us as we celebrate 50 years of quality service and distribution

What was happening in our early years?

“We were cleaning used typewriters in the bathtub of our first office, a leased house near Uptown Charlotte when we first opened Hank Welfare’s company before it became known as Carolina Wholesale or ARLINGTON. Service and support was a big part of our business from day one.”

Larry Huneycutt – President of ARLINGTON

The Hank Welfare Company would later be renamed Carolina Wholesale. Later they would purchase Arlington Industries and together became ARLINGTON.
