Consolidating two Google listings?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

There are two different listings showing in Google Search for this business. For example, my carefully updated listing is showing in Screenshot_1, and the listing with missing information that I did not create is shown in Screenshot_2. If you search "Forney Industries" Screenshot_2 is showing up. How can I fix this? If I try to claim the listing shown in Screenshot_2 (Own this business?), it asks me to create a new G+ page and go through the verification process all over again. I definitely don't want to do that; is there a way to alert Google that there is a secondary listing that should be deleted?

I've already changed the duplicates, per my earlier reply. This thread can be deleted or closed as I have found an alternative solution to my original question. Thank you.

Apologies, looks like my question got a little mangled!

 

Essentially, there's two duplicate listings for this business. I was looking to delete one of them or at least disable, hide etc. After further research, it didn't seem to be an option to delete/hide/disable one of them, so I simply turned one into the corporate campus listing and one into the warehouse location listing instead of having a duplicate of the corporate campus listing. I'm assuming Google Search will catch on soon enough to which is which. So, initial question was more or less solved.

 

My follow-up question is, what (if anything) can I do to tell Google that I'd like the corporate campus account to be the primary search result instead of the warehouse location?

a "duplicate listings for this business" are per definition two or more listings for the same address of the business.

 

I did not found such duplicates.

The two listings I provided GMaps URLs are for different locations and addresses.
