Gaining an improved customer offering and the opportunity to continue to grow, Evergreen Supply Inc. is now a Matheson company.

The two companies have had a long-standing distributor relationship, but the Basking Ridge, NJ-based gases company has now successfully acquired the assets and business of Evergreen.

Based in Aberdeen, SD, Evergreen will become a part of Matheson’s North Central Zone and the purchase of Evergreen will enable growth and expansion throughout the Northern South Dakota area.

For Evergreen, who will continue to be led by former Evergreen Supply owner Ryan Siefkes, the deal allows the company to become a part of the Matheson team and improve its customer offering.

Matheson will continue to combine the same services, products and dedication to customer service that has made Evergreen Supply successful in the past, and Mark Bell, North Central Zone vice-president, said, “Evergreen is known as a top service provider in this market and we are very pleased with our expansion into Aberdeen, South Dakota.”

“We welcome the Evergreen customers and employees to the Matheson family.”
