The company was founded in 1977 by Ed Wolfe’s parents. Under a 12 year apprenticeship in the company, not only as a plumber but also handling the operational and financial management aspects of the business, Ed Wolfe rose up in the ranks to become the Managing Director. Under his directorship, the company saw an expansion of its HVAC business as well as overall growth in the scope of work done, securing huge contracts and complex jobs. After acquiring major shares in the company, Ed Wolfe was the driving force behind GGEHS LLC’s success. The company realized a turnover of $9 million over a span of 15 years as well as an increase in the number of employees, with about 75 people employed in the company.
Ed Wolfe has ensured the competence and survival of the company in the market through strategic acquisitions and mergers.
