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.”
