Our store in Montgomery, Alabama held an open house last month as their way to say ‘thank you’ to their loyal customers and to celebrate the upcoming 30th anniversary of Atlantic Supply in 2017. The Montgomery store enlisted the help of two exceptional vendors in Melfred Borzall and Baroid IDP, who sent representatives to display the latest innovations in HDD products and services.
The Montgomery store opened in 2006, making it the fifth Atlantic Supply store and the first outside of Florida. Earlier this year, Paul Eikenberry was promoted to Montgomery Branch Manager after working in customer service for four years. Paul has extensive experience in industrial product sales and he has been a key part to the Montgomery stores growth. The Montgomery store stocks supplies for virtually every type of drilling and construction materials testing and they also provide in-house Nuclear Density Gauge calibration and repairs and on-site calibration and repair for materials testing laboratories.
Here are a few pictures from the open house.
During the week of the open house, we were fortunate to have the founder of Melfred Borzall, Dick Melsheimer, visit our customer’s jobsite to assist with a new Melfred Borzall back-reamer they were using. Melfred Borzall tooling is well known in the Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) industry for innovative designs and outstanding durability and value. Needless to say, our client was very pleased to have Mr. Melsheimer and Atlantic Supply HDD Tooling Specialist, H.A. Stacey on their project for consultation.
Atlantic Supply was very happy to host Dave Roberts (far right), the regional Senior Field Service Representative with Baroid IDP, at the open house. Mr. Roberts is the regional ‘mud engineer’ that not only assists our Montgomery staff with product training but also visits our clients in the field to provide drilling fluids selection and training. As with all Baroid IDP field service representatives, there is no charge for their services for customers that use their products.

A fantastic spread of food was on hand and a neighbor of our Montgomery store brought cheesecake!
During the open house, a drawing was held for a free smoker, which was won by James with HDD, Inc. Also pictured above is Dick Melsheimer with Melfred Borzall (left) and Carlos Licona, President of Atlantic Supply (right).
