History

Our company’s founder, Rod Strub, programmed his first computer in 1978, a Z-80-based Exidy Sourcer, using native hex-decimal assembly code. Through the years, Rod has expanded his knowledge of computers, networking, and radio communications, establishing packet switched X.25 and TCP/IP amateur radio networks in the mid to late 80s.

In 1986, Rod joined a small Atlanta-based water and wastewater systems integrator. It is there he learned to combine his technical computer and programming skills into the hardware design, build, start-up, and maintenance of instrumentation and control systems for the industry.

Rod started Southern Flow in 1994, and since that time, it has grown into a multi-million-dollar corporation, employing hardware and software engineers, graphic designers, skilled panel builders, and expert field service engineers. In that time the company has successfully performed over 450 installations in the southeastern states and along the eastern seaboard.
