About us


At Cureco Inc. we saw a need in the tobacco industry. That need was for dependable service and products. When the law was passed requiring heat exchangers be installed in every barn, we released our first heat exchanging product. Starting from that point we grew to many facets of the tobacco industry.

Headquartered in Seven Springs, we service a large area of central North Carolina. This allows us to remain in close contact with most of the farms we service, allowing for fast, manufacturer grade quality service to all the products we sell. Never leaving the farmer in the dark when a problem strikes.
