From a press release.
Covington Casket Company of Andalusia, Alabama, recently announced a new addition to the sales team. Andrew Williamson will join Covington in January, 2017, and will be serving the Mississippi and Louisiana area as a sales representative. He will be the 3rd generation of the Williamson family to have served this same area.
The late Johnny Williamson began his sales career with Covington in 1971 and eventually became owner and president of the company in 1986. That same year, his son and current vice president, Alan Williamson, joined the company as a sales rep. Alan stated, “As a father I could not be more proud than to have Andrew join us. From an early age, Andrew has shown interest in our family business. He would come by after school and go straight into the factory. Wherever he could help he would jump right in. It means a lot to him knowing this was his grandfather’s business. He has the personality and work ethic that will help our company to continue to grow and prosper.” Added Alan, “We’ve been here since 1924, and I have no doubt the future will be in good hands.”
After 30 years of being on the road, Alan plans on becoming more actively involved in day-to-day operations of the company. “It’s time to pass the torch,” he says. For more information about Covington, visit their website at www.covingtoncasket.com.
