Charlotte, NC, September 28, 2015 – Carolina Wholesale Group (‘CWG’) announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Smoltz Distributing, Inc. The addition of Smoltz Distributing further complements CWG’s position as the nation’s preferred distributor of office products and renews focus to the evolving Dictation, Transcription, Voice Processing System Solutions
market. The acquisition gives CWG strengthened relationships with key vendors, dealers, and vertical markets.
“Carolina Wholesale Group has been seeking to expand many of our well established product lines over the past year. The relationship Smoltz has with over 400 U.S. and Canadian dealers, VARs, and integrators is crucial to our growth in this category,” says Larry Huneycutt, President of Carolina Wholesale. “Additionally, we feel the team Smoltz has in place is exactly what we need to grow this business while expanding the Smoltz product catalog with other CWG distribution dealers.” Arlington Industries, Carolina Wholesale, and Smoltz Distributing will begin to offer expanded distribution of products throughout North America immediately and can provide valuable virtual warehouse and drop-ship fulfillment centers to dealers of any size. John
Smoltz agrees, “Dealers and their customers want to know product is in stock and their customers can receive it in one or two days affordably. This new partnership provides enhanced delivery to Smoltz dealers.” Mr. Huneycutt adds, “The acquisition of Smoltz is the third acquisition for CWG this year and will allow us to further expand our distribution network across the United States and Canada.”
