Southern Folger Detention Equipment Co.


The need for a good lock or door in a jail is immeasurable. And for more than 100 years, Southern Folger De­tention Equipment Co. has manufactured products that provide that level of reliability, even after years of use. “You have to provide a product that doesn’t break down,” Director of Operations Joe Chavez says, noting that on average, detention mechanisms will last 25 to 30 years. “You won’t last more than a few decades [in this industry] if you can’t stand behind your product.”
