History of Carolina Belting

Established in 1936, Carolina Belting began as a textile and industrial belt shop. At the time of its founding, Greenville, SC, was known as the Textile Capital of the World, with Southern textile mills producing more than 70% of cotton and woolen textiles. While most of the textile business is gone, our community retains its world-class status in manufacturing and warehousing/distribution operations. Greenville is No. 6 on Forbes Magazine’s list of “America’s Engineering Capitals” in 2014.

What has remained steadfast throughout our 80 year history is how Carolina Belting provides the parts and power systems to maximize uptime and prolong the life of critical equipment. At Carolina Belting, quality never quits. Today, we are not just a regional distributor. We provide excellent service to companies from coast-to-coast.

In 2005, Bob Hammersla became president of Carolina Belting. Under his strategic direction, Carolina Belting became a member-owner of the Independent Distributors Cooperative USA (IDC-USA), a national cooperative of nearly 300 independent distributors supplying the highest quality bearings, power transmission, hose, rubber, hydraulics and related products available.

Carolina Belting helps manufacturers and distributors move from complexity to clarity in finding state-of-the-art products at cost effective rates.
