Our history dates back to 1959 when the Founder, Rick Evans, began a career in the water works industry. He went on to become a very successful salesman at a large waterworks supplier within the province, and eventually decided to start his own business. In 1992, Rick and his wife Linda founded Evans Supply with only three employees. At that time they saw an immediate need for more focus on the Municipal water and wastewater sector. Evans Supply Limited (ESL) proudly celebrated its 25th Anniversary in 2017. Evans Supply Limited (ESL) proudly celebrated its 25th Anniversary in 2017.
Not long after inception, Evans Supply became a stocking distributor for three key product lines including Neptune water meters, Ford brass and pipe products, as well as Kupferle water distribution products.
Today, Evans Supply has grown to include nine full-time employees with a strong customer base of Municipal and First Nations customers in Ontario. Keeping in the tradition of husband and wife ownership, the ESL team is now led by Edward and Linda Bertolo who purchased the company in early 2010. Edward brings twenty years of experience to the industry, including nine years of product experience working for Neptune Technology Group Canada. Linda brings thirteen years of experience from the financial banking sector. We continue to build on the core business values set out by our founders.
The ESL team has over 100 years of combined experience in the municipal market. We are dedicated to continuing our tradition of offering the best products and service possible to our valued customers. "We not only supply exceptional products we also supply exceptional customer service".
Quality products and customer service have always been our main focus. Product technology is constantly evolving, and ESL works closely with our suppliers to remain current and up-to-date with our product training so that we can provide the best possible customer support for our product lines.
Our inventory level plays an important role in our customer support as well. Our product delivery performance differentiates us from most of our competitors, with most deliveries occurring within a week and some are even next-day or same-day. ESL doesn’t just sell the product, in many instances we assist customers with cost benefit models that help them to select the correct product and/or service offering for their applications and projects.
Evans Supply is proud to represent three of the largest and most experienced water product manufacturers in North America. Each of these manufacturers has at least 120 years of experience producing quality products for the water/wastewater industry. We have witnessed the evolution of technology in these product lines over the years and are proud to represent and sell them. They are leaders in their respective product categories and manufacture what we believe are the most reliable and best performing products in the market today.
