With the purchase of our first truckload of scaffolding from Waco Scaffolding in 1951, Brewer Equipment Company launched into the scaffolding business. While we have added new product lines over the years, our primary business continues to be the rental, sales, and erection of steel scaffolding for all industries in need of solutions to their access needs. We service customers throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.
In 1962, Brewer Equipment Company became a distributor for the Paslode product line of pneumatic tools and fasteners. This new product line expanded our customer base to include the residential building contractor. We are now the oldest continuous distributor of Paslode products in the United States. Over the years, we have added additional lines of fasteners and tools, as well as many other products, used every day by contractors working in the residential and commercial building industry.
During 1984, we added the Waco Wedgelok System scaffold to our rental inventory and Brewer Equipment Company began providing our scaffold services to paper mills, power plants, and industrial customers. By combining our large inventory of system scaffolding with trained scaffold erectors and experienced supervisors, we provide reliable and dependable solutions to all access needs during outages, emergencies, and long term projects.
Today, Brewer Equipment Company has three locations in North Carolina. While Greensboro is our home office, we expanded our business to a branch office in Wilmington in 1988 and our newest branch, in Southport, NC, began operations in 2001. Our goal today remains the same as in 1951 when our company was founded: Provide our customers with quality products, competitive pricing, and exceptional service.
