“We contracted with Southern Fluid Systems to build a new finishing system. Best decision I ever made. We had plans to us in no time, the costs were within our budget – and the project went off without a hitch. We have more than doubled our production capabilities with the plan they put in place and we have also lowered production costs. All through the process they were great to work with and they’ve put together a huge showpiece for our manufacturing facility. We would definitely use them again.”
