Our Employees

Evans Supply Limited (ESL) proudly celebrated its 20th Anniversary in 2012. 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.

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".
