Johnston found he could deliver high-quality products at a fair price by relying on the workmanship and dedication of talented welders, fabricators, grinders and upholsterers like long-time employee, Chris Souther. Souther is a Wilkes County, N.C. native with over 20 years of experience with Johnston Casuals. He learned his trade in high school and the Army National Guard and has become an integral member of the Johnston Casuals manufacturing team.
Once Johnston approves a new CAD design from the design team, Souther brings it to life with welding, drafting and fabrication. Souther’s role also involves coaching and mentoring other company craftsmen how to continue the tradition of creating unique, detail-oriented products that serve both form and function.
