Since 1937, the R.V. Evans' Team has been focused on one thing, bringing the best possible experience to our business partners. Whether it is in the packaging and fastening products we distribute, the solutions we provide, or the service we deliver, at R.V. Evans it has all been about the customer.
Based in Decatur, Illinois, RV Evans has been owned and operated by the Evans family for over 80 years by providing innovative fastening and packaging products, equipment, and servicing solutions to customers in a broad range of industries including construction, housing, food & beverage, consumer products, automotive, agriculture and other general industrial end markets. Kelly Evans and TC Evans have now taken on leadership positions within LINC Systems as our two great companies transition to one. The acquisition of RV Evans further diversifies LINC Systems’ business across customers and end markets, as well as geographically, with the combined businesses now serving customers in 30 US states.
Dear Friend of RV Evans,
It is with great enthusiasm that I reach out to share some big news about R.V. Evans! Like many businesses with a proud history, we pause to reflect on our past successes with many of our loyal customers throughout the past 83 years. In parallel, we turn our efforts to the future and continue to change in order to meet the demands of today’s business climate. On January 31st of this year we took a significant step towards building an even brighter future for our customers, suppliers, and employees by aligning with another market leader in our industry. R.V. Evans Company was acquired by LINC Systems, an Indiana-based industrial fastening and packaging distributor with over 40 years of history, forming a partnership that will continue to build for many years into the future.
We are truly excited about establishing this newly formed partnership together as both organizations strongly believe in it! LINC’s history and values are aligned with ours. Along with our valued employees and management team, TC Evans and I plan to continue being a part of this new venture forward as we begin to combine resources and talent to serve our collective customer base. Toward that end, I have accepted the position as President of LINC Systems and RV Evans Company to lead this newly formed alliance on the journey forward.
The world is continuing to change, and so are the needs of our growing customers. LINC and R.V. Evans are stronger together offering benefits such as these to your organization:
Increased Market Strength:
With the addition of RV Evans and other recognized industry partners, LINC Systems market reach now extends to over 30 states, increasing our market service reach and making us stronger and more competitive well into the future.
Increased Product Offering:
This strengthens our core product offering of Packaging & Fastening Systems, and Industrial Supplies providing you with access to even more products, services and expertise.
The financial strength of this newly formed alliance has already allowed us to make deeper investments in tool and technology platforms creating a superior customer service experience.
Though we continue to explore and invest in the future, rest assured that we are still the same R.V. Evans Company team that you have relied upon for over 8 decades and 3 family generations.
If you have any questions about the new R.V. Evans / LINC Systems organization, please feel free to reach out to your key contact with us or any member of our management group.
On behalf of the extraordinarily talented people at The R.V. Evans Company, I would like to express our gratitude for allowing us the privilege to be a part of your Company’s history. Moreover, we sincerely wish to thank you for your ongoing confidence in our ability to positively impact and participate in your Company’s future success. We look forward to sharing more benefits of the LINC/RV Evans partnership with you in the coming months.
