From the beginning, Carolina Tractor has been a distributor of heavy construction equipment but, during the depression, our products included dairy supplies, washing powder and milk bottle caps. We sold anything to pay the bills. Our commitment to customer service is well known. Early one Sunday morning in 1955, a fire destroyed Carolina Tractor's Asheville branch. By Monday morning, we were back in business at a temporary location. Within a week Carolina Tractor had purchased and moved into a new facility. The company moved quickly so that our customers would not be disadvantaged by our misfortune.
