Dixie Strapping and Twine was started in 1971 by Elmo Hindman and Harold C. Deifenderfer. Elmo was a Korean War US Navy veteran, and Harold C. “Duffy” Deifenderfer was a World War II airborne paratrooper. Having both worked at AJ Gerrard & Co, they had a good background with steel strapping but decided to try their talent at building a business which offered more. Duffy retired a few years later, and Elmo continued to build the business which filled a niche and offered packaging solutions to companies ranging from small sawmills to Fortune 500 companies.
The company was purchased in 2007 by Elmo’s son Cliff, a former US Air Force pilot who, flying the T-38 Talon, A-10 Warthog, and KC-135 Stratotanker, logged over 4500 military flying hours, including 689 combat hours. He continues to build the business dedicated to the core values of service and integrity.
