A Story Told With Great Frequency

In 2005 Terry Houck, Sr. was interviewed on WTZQ 1600 AM. As the new Business Development Manager for a Henderson County nonprofit, he was theorizing about consolidated outsourcing as a cost-reduction method; which at the time was still primarily subject to trial-and-error.

Fast forward to 2010. The advanced manufacturing sector in Western North Carolina grew, and the call for on-demand quality inspection and defect containment became urgent. So a unique idea was born: industrial service integration. All that was needed was 25,000 square feet of climate-controlled production space and an expertly trained team of specialists available around the clock. No problem.

After experimenting with a selection of temporary workrooms, a long-lasting home was found for Single Source Industrial Solutions (SSIS) in Fletcher Business Park. Quality control, component assembly, product packaging, warehousing, and distribution relationships were cultivated with some of our nation's most respected brands, and the original theory transformed into a magnificent reality with global reach.

Fast forward to 2017.  SSIS was acquired by Tutco-Farnam General Manager, Mike Armstrong, who brings his 30 years of manufacturing and quality assurance experience in aerospace, digital media, automotive/heavy equipment and electric components to work for our customers.

In August of 2018 SSIS became ISO 9001:2015 Registered by NSF-ISR, further enhancing our business model and giving added confidence to our customers.
