A family business for nearly 70 years, GEM Plumbing and Heating was founded in 1949 by Larry Sr. and Gloria Gemma. Today, the Gem company is managed by brothers Larry, Lenny, and Eddy Gemma, and several other family members are actively involved in our day-to-day operations.
We value our 70 years in business and remain dedicated to upholding the quality and timely service that our company was founded upon. Today, Gem has over 250 hardworking employees and over 165 trucks, making us one of the largest service companies in the United States. We provide installation, maintenance, and repair services across plumbing, HVAC, electrical, drains, and more for homeowners, businesses, and construction customers. Our size allows us to be there when you need us the most!
