Established in 1972 Carolina Eastern, Inc. remains focused on the family farm and has been part of the fabric of agriculture in the southeast.
Since its beginning in 1972, Carolina Eastern has been helping farmers grow their crops bigger and better every year. CEO Ashton Phillips founded Carolina Eastern along with partners Tony Cecil of Charleston and Sammie Rodgers of Scranton in 1972 amid uncertain times for the fertilizer industry. "We were able to survive and actually thrive during the early years because we were dedicated to hard work and to satisfying our customers." says CEO Phillips.
Today, Carolina Eastern employs over 300 people and operates more than 40 plants throughout the Southeast and beyond. Carolina Eastern is dedicated to excellence through growth.
Two major principles stand out at Carolina Eastern: the importance of people and the commitment to manage change.
"People are the heart of our business,"' says CEO Phillips. "Without good people, it would be impossible to do what we do." As a family business owner, Phillips knows the importance of valuing people completely. "With our staff representing Carolina Eastern across the country, it is crucial to maintain positive relationships with them as they are the "real people"' that deal with the farmers day by day."' Farmers throughout the Southeast have grown to trust Carolina Eastern because of the reputation of the company and its senior management.
