History of Southern Heat Corporation

History of Southern Heat Corporation

Founded in 2005 by Tony Evans and Jason Reed, Southern Heat Corporation has grown from humble beginnings to become a leading manufacturer and distributor of high-quality process heating products. The journey of these two fraternity brothers and best friends, who met at Kennesaw State University while pursuing Engineering degrees, is a testament to their dedication and vision.

The Early Days

After graduating, Tony and Jason were both hired by a company providing maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) supplies to the plastics industry. After eight years of experience in the industry, they were inspired to start their own business with a clear mission:

  • Treat customers according to the golden rule
  • Treat employees like family
  • Only sell products that allow us to sleep well at night
  • Make lots of sales calls

With the expertise of Tony’s wife, Dede Evans, a business accountant and consultant, Southern Heat Corporation was incorporated on August 8, 2005, in a basement in Cartersville, GA. Despite the chaos of running a business from a basement, the company experienced exponential growth, prompting a move to its current location in Cartersville, GA, in 2006.

As Southern Heat Corporation expanded, more employees were hired, and the product line grew. The company prides itself on the family-like atmosphere it has built, attributing its success to a team effort.
