Mr. Charles Arrington’s youthful love of baseball led him to pursue a career as a high school teacher and baseball coach. After Graduating from LaGrange College with a degree in education, Charles found there were no teaching jobs available in the area. Having recently wed his wife Sharron (whom he would remain married to until his death in 2015), Charles was in need of employment and could not hold out for a teaching job to come available. Charles found an opportunity at a local textile mill and he began his career at Milliken & Co as a worker in the maintenance department, a department that he would eventually come to manage and one where he would spend the next 18 years of his life. In 1989, Charles Arrington decided to start his own company focusing on Fabrication and Millwright contracting services for industrial plants in the Troup County area, thus, Midsouth Mechanical, Inc. was born.
