When a customer chooses to buy seven of your buildings over the course of time, it deserves a little attention and that’s exactly what American Buildings Company did. ABC, a NUCOR company that manufactures high-quality metal building systems, recently honored one of its regular customers, Southern Plastics, with its “Proud to Buy American” award. Terry Spence, president of Southern Plastics, was presented the special award on Nov. 22.
Since 1976, Southern Plastics, Eufaula, Ala., has been manufacturing plastic fishing lures for major brands. They mold the lures with injection machines and package them to be sold in large department stores, such as Bass Pro Shop. As the largest producer of injection soft-plastic manufactured fishing lures in the country, Southern Plastics is one of the few companies that produce lures in the United States.
“We are a small entity so it is nice to be recognized, and it is an honor to be able to recognize all those that have made this company successful,” commented Spence.
Speaking on behalf of ABC, Jack Jordan, Vice President and General Manager, South Division of ABC, said, “American Buildings Company is very appreciative of Southern Plastics’ loyalty to our product as evidenced by the purchase of its seventh building. We are also proud to be associated with a great company that shares our philosophy of keeping and creating jobs in America.”
