Charlotte Business Journal Awards Successful Manufacturing Company Founded from Tragedy
CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 2018
The Charlotte Business Journal awarded Northeast Tool the Family Business Award in the MidSized Company category. The 3rd Annual Family Business Awards honors family-owned businesses for overall excellence, innovation, ethics, philanthropy and contribution to the strength of the region.
Northeast Tool, a contract manufacturer for the aerospace, defense, energy, medical, and commercial industries, was founded by Larry Arant back in 1964 after a car accident during a tornado left Arant jobless and without a left arm. Overcoming extreme adversity, Arant built Northeast Tool from the ground up, which was then passed on to his son and acting CEO, Rusty Arant.
Across three generations, with Rusty’s own son Aaron now acting as the Director of Business Development, the Arant family has continued to uphold the highest standard of work quality and ethics based on their core values. “We pride ourselves on not only delivering a quality product to our customers, but also teaching our employees to do it the right way. Our focus on family and relationships has created an environment where everyone can be successful,” Aaron says.
The Charlotte Business Journal’s 3rd Annual Family Business Awards were held at the Ritz Carlton on May 3rd. Other family-owned businesses competed in Northeast Tool’s mediumsized category, including Dry Pro Foundation, Crawlspace Specialists and Super Global Mart. In the large company category, Comporium outranked Bonded Logistics and Elite Resources Staffing, and took home the winning title.
