J&M Hydrualics stands for John and Mary. The history of how they got into the vibratory pile driver manufacturing business is a crazy story that I plan to write about in the coming weeks. J&M was the source for ICE vibratory machines from the very beginning in 1974. King Evarts Jr. led J&M into the world’s largest manufacturer of pile driving equipment. APE and J&M merged in 2001. King Jr. still heads up all things regarding J&M as well as serving as Chief Engineer for APE. I look forward to writing more about this topic next week. The story is filled with some crazy events that I know you will enjoy learning about.
