We’re Family Owned and it Shows.
Our dad, Charles S. Evenson was brought up in the Greenwood County oilfields. Throughout the ’40s, his parents owned and operated a service station in Burkett that serviced vehicles and drilling rigs which were operated by Phillips 66.
Father worked for several companies while attending college at Wichita State University, graduating in 1959. Over the next decade, he worked for Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp. supply division and The Dupont Co.
In 1965, he attended Missouri Auction School and founded Evenson Auctioneers selling industrial, oil field and heavy equipment in Wichita, Kansas.
We held our first public oil and gas production auction in 1975 and have been selling oil and gas properties nationally ever since.
Charles S. Evenson was inducted into the Great Bend Petroleum Hall of Fame for his contribution to the oil and gas industry.
We’ve kept Evenson Auctioneers right here in the family – Mike and Mark purchased the company from their father in 2000 and continue to operate it today.
Our customers know us for our honesty, professionalism, and expertise
which is exactly what you’d expect from a company with roots as deep as ours. As we evolve with the oil and gas production industry, our core values stay the same; we know steady relationships are the foundation of solid deals. We take handshakes very seriously and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
