The story of Evergreen starts with a man named Dick Lord. Dick had his own refrigeration company in the 1960’s. His two young and ambitious grandsons, Dave and Roger Patton, joined him there as apprentices.

In 1970, Roger and Dave decided to start their own businesses. One had a residential HVAC shop while the other specialized in commercial refrigeration. Then, in 1975, the brothers combined their businesses and Evergreen Refrigeration was born. Throughout the decades, Evergreen has been known as a company built on innovation, customer service, and family values.

Unfortunately, after a battle with cancer, Dave passed away in 2011. He left an indelible impact on the company’s core principles and culture, which live on in its current ownership, management, and employees. The company’s current ownership group includes Roger Patton, Matt Patton (Dave’s son), Adam Patton (Dave’s son), and Doug Patton (Dave’s son). Several other children of Roger and Dave currently work in and manage the company.
