Yaun Company was founded in 1923 when R.D. Yaun pioneered the new technology, “oil burning equipment”. He provided superior service and customer satisfaction during the time when oil burners were not as trouble-free as those of today.


R.D. also had to cope with opponents to “oil burning equipment” since his business grew up in the middle of a railroad town, Liberty, NY. Some of his customers who worked on the rail were threatened bodily harm and loss of jobs if “one of those contraptions” was installed in their home. The railroad’s main income was from transporting coal and they were afraid of “change”.


People were added to the payroll over the years. By 1960, young R.H. Yaun realized the position of President. R.H.’s new method of management style evolved for the sake of the company’s continued success. His main idea was to develop and train personnel from the inside.



Due to failing health, R.H. retired from the company in 1980 leaving management to Richard H. Yaun, Jr., Alan Willi and Daniel W. Yaun. Yaun Company secured its position in the market place by adding major lines some of which include: Weil-McLain, Peerless, Rheem, Viessmann, Myers, and HeatLink.


In 1986 and 1999 Yaun Company Inc. opened a new location in Albany and New Paltz respectively. In addition, Thomas Zweck and Burt Robertson, long time employees, were added as company stockholders. This is evidence that our wholesale supply business is boldly confident to serve the plumbing, electrical and HVAC trades long into the future.
