Our Company

Devon Distributing Corporation

Tom Carpenter founded Devon Distributing Corporation in 1996. As an ESC contractor, Devon Distributing Corporation installs approximately 300,000 linear feet of silt fence per year, a level of experience that gave Tom first hand knowledge of the difficulties of trench silt fencing. That’s why in 1996, he imagined, developed and manufactured the first tommy™.

As a contractor and manufacturer, Devon Distributing Corporation has unlimited experience with the tommy™ in all soil and weather conditions, and landscape challenges.



Tom Carpenter, CPESC

Founder, owner and president of Devon Distributing Corporation, Tom Carpenter has been a Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control since 1998. His company co-sponsored the research on silt fence effectiveness with the EPA, and he has written the draft for silt fence for the EPA’s Technical Sheet Program on Erosion and Sediment Control Practices. He also developed the training CD on silt fence for the International Erosion Control Association. Many of Tom’s installation and placement concepts have been duplicated in training manuals and state agency specifications. He has literally “written the book” on silt fencing.


Customer Comments

The durability, ease of operation, and ability to install large amounts of fence per day with a two-man crew, made the tommy™ a wise choice when considering our method for installation. We purchased a tommy™ May 2003 and have installed in some of the worst conditions Florida has to offer; the machine has hit everything from engine blocks to refrigerators with no damage to the machine. I attribute our growth over the past year to the tommy™ and plan to purchase another in the future.
