EVCO Petroleum Products is a family held S Corporation, which opened for business in 1992. EVCO was purchased by Gerald N Evenson of Pelican Rapids, Minnesota. Prior to the purchase of this business, Grover Lindberg had established this oil distribution company selling Shell Oil product for well over 20 years.
We are a service oriented lubricants distributor, marketing within a 150 mile radius of Detroit Lakes. We currently market Shell and Cenex branded products in Northern/Central Minnesota and Eastern North Dakota. In 2009, we were one of the first in the United States to sign an Alliance Contract with the Shell Oil Company.
EVCO started out by leasing an office and warehouse on the north side of Detroit Lakes. In 1998, we broke ground on a new 14,500 square foot warehouse in the Detroit Lakes Industrial Park. This building made us much more efficient and effective to handle our customer's needs along with the steady growth of our business. Since 1998, we have added on two times giving us more than 25,000 square feet with our eyes on another expansion in the near future.
