Through diligence, pride in quality workmanship and excellent

service, the legacy of Silas Evans has lasted 100 years as the now

Evans Mechanical, Inc. The roots of this company can be found in

the classic American dream and for five generations, the name 

"Evans" has been synonymous with the highest quality workmanship

in plumbing and heating services.

Silas Evans along with his wife Coral, started the company S.J.

Evans Heating and Ventilation, in Scranton Pennsylvania in 1917. 

Six years later with his wife and baby daughter Ruth in tow, Silas

came to Broome County determined, along with his wife, to build 

their own plumbing and heating enterprise. Toting his tools around 

in a wheelbarrow while Coral was keeping the books, Si soon

became a familiar figure on the streets of Endicott New York. The 

legacy has been handed down through 5 generations. From Silas and

Coral, to their daughter Ruth and her husband Kenneth. The company

Evans Plumbing and Heating was incorporated in 1960 and then

passed on to Kenneth and Ruth's two sons, Karl and K. David

Spencer as the 3rd generation. Karl and K. David brought in

their children as the 4th generation. In 1997 the company was divided

into the residential business, remaining Evans plumbing and heating,

run by K. David's sons Jim and Tom Spencer. Karl's daughter

(Silas' great-granddaughter) Susan, and her husband J.B. took the

commercial industrial business and started a separate company,

Evans Mechanical Inc. serving Broome county and surrounding areas within a 2 hour radius of the office, located at 314 Maple Street, Endicott. The woman owned business is run by Susan and J.B. Barnes along with two of their children Josh Barnes and Jessyca Barnes/Kublo (Evans' fifth generation).

Evans has come a long way in its 100 years from a one man shop, to Evans Mechanical Inc., a privately held corporation which is a union oriented, signatory contractor of Local #112 employing 50-60 skilled mechanical tradesmen. Adapting to the growing needs of specialized function, Evans Mechanical is certified by the highest standards providing certified welders, certified medical gas installers and installation, and back flow prevention system testing and repairs, just to name a few.
