Lyon, Conklin & Co. celebrates 150 years
HVAC wholesale distributor Lyon, Conklin & Co. is celebrating 150 years in business. First opened in 1860, the Elkridge, Md.-based company reaches the milestone number this year.
“It’s truly a remarkable achievement for any company to reach a milestone like this,” said David Brown, Lyon, Conklin’s general manager. “The fact that we’re still doing so well after 150 years is a testament to our associates, our loyal customers and the strength of our company’s values.”
The company has been around to see the Civil War, two world wars and the Great Depression. With this in mind, company officials say the distributor can flourish through any situation, including the current economic recession.
Earlier this year, Lyon, Conklin was selected as the new American Standard HVAC distributor throughout Eastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey.
Acquired by Ferguson Enterprises in 1995, Lyon, Conklin currently operates 23 locations throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia. To celebrate the anniversary, the company will host special events at locations in each of its markets.
