Industrial Controls Distributors has announced the opening of a new regional office in Charlotte, North Carolina, US. The opening of the Charlotte branch is a step toward integrating Industrial Controls’ existing Charlotte operation with Piedmont operations since the merger of the two companies in December 2007. Located in Indian Trail, North Carolina, the new branch extends its services to customers throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. The office’s 10,000sq/ft of area has allowed for features such as expanded warehouse space for increased local inventory, an elaborate training facility, and a valve and instrument repair center. Industrial Controls, headquartered in Wanamassa, New Jersey, currently operates 19 offices covering 22 states and three nationwide distribution centers.
