What is the story?

The Carswell Distributing History

Carswell Distributing Company was founded in 1948 by Mr. Robert E. Carswell as a wholesale-distributor of electric water pumps in central North Carolina. Over the years Carswell has brought many product lines to the market, including toys, personal care products, consumer electronics, and major home appliances. Carswell has adapted its business to changing product life cycles, markets, and the business environment, and today, we are a major marketer and distributor of commercial outdoor power equipment and home heating products.


Carswell provides complete marketing, sales, and service support as well as pick, pack, and ship services for all products sold and focuses on developing close partnerships with both its customers and vendors. Our stated purpose is driving customer success and our vision is delivering a better future for our customers.


Carswell currently operates distribution businesses in Winston Salem, NC and Greenwood, AR; Out of these facilities we provide both traditional wholesale-distribution functions and offer customized sales, marketing, and logistical support services for start-up businesses.
