GEM PLUMBING AND HEATING Services LLC’s last 70 years of success has been built through family teamwork and community outreach, delivering quality service via 250 employees staffing 165 trucks.

Pitching in to make the company succeed and grow has been a given for founders Larry Sr. and Gloria Gemma and their nine children, said Larry Gemma, co-president of the company.

“As a family, we all work together, to this day,” Gemma said.

Each sibling handles a certain aspect of the company they’ve adopted as their expertise, an approach that has helped Gem grow into one of the largest service companies in the United States.

Recently, much of the company’s growth has been through geographical expansion, Gemma said. Recent expansion includes a Connecticut office, focused on heating, ventilating and air conditioning and big commercial projects, and two offices in Massachusetts opened this year, in Walpole and Wakefield, focused on light commercial construction.

“That market, lately, has just been crazy,” Gemma said.

The company has ambitions as a national service firm, Gemma said, a goal it has begun working toward with its recent partnership with a Pennsylvania company.
