Honored by the SSCA
Southern States Correctional Association President, Kevin Murphy, presents President's Award to Southern Folger.
At the annual Southern States Correctional Association Conference held in Little Rock, Arkansas, on July 13th Southern Folger Detention Equipment Company was the recipient of the President’s Award.  Southern States is an association that includes a 14 state area in the southeastern portion of the country.  This annual award, given at the discretion of the association President, is typically presented to a key association member for their contribution to the conference.  This year was the first year the award has been presented to a supplier.   According to Kevin Murphy, Southern States President with the Arkansas Department of Corrections, he chose Southern Folger for two reasons.  On the corrections side, Southern Folger has provided quality installation of new equipment, equipment repair and retrofit of existing equipment to many of the facilities within the association’s area.  He further stated that when assistance is needed, Southern Folger takes care of the issue then and there, even to the point of providing contact cell phone numbers for immediately contact during weekends and holidays. The second reason is the valued partnership between Southern Folger and SSCA, through financial support to keep Southern States strong in lean times, but also supporting the facilities by recognizing their needs through interaction with correctional staff.  "The SSCA President's Award is a true honor from a world class organization and we are proud to partner with this exceptional group of corrections professionals."
