"The 2018 tHINk Different Expo brought together some of the brightest minds in the industry with a focus on improving business in the year ahead," said a company spokesperson.

"The new location will continue to build upon the company's commitment to support the manufacturing industry, build long-lasting relationships and share its decades of experience to help businesses harness new technology and tools to find comprehensive solutions for their manufacturing needs," said the spokesperson.

"As a leading machine tool distributor, we help fabricators compete in a global market, and I am excited to be opening this facility in Mooresville. It gives our company a strategic advantage," said Bill Plourd, Vice President, Southern States Machinery Inc.

"Mooresville looks forward to building a long-lasting relationship with Southern States Machinery. It will be an asset to our business community, as we have a vast amount of metal fabricators utilizing the products it distributes," said Mayor Miles Atkins, Town of Mooresville.
