Gemaire Sales Centers Celebrate the Company’s 50th Anniversary

Gemaire Distributors was founded in Boca Raton by Quincy Carvel II, Carl Sherr and Manuel Leon as a distributor of Rheem HVAC products with 1 location and 4 employees. In 1970, Ken Perkins purchased Carl Sherr’s interest in Gemaire.

With the help of their partner, Rheem Manufacturing in Fort Smith, Arkansas, it has grown from that small company in Boca Raton to what Gemaire Group is today, North America’s largest Rheem Distributor, with over 800 employees in 90+ locations from coast-to-coast. Over the years, Gemaire has also grown from being primarily an equipment Distributor to now being a supplier of most all HVAC related products, parts and supplies.

Gemaire Florida Sales Centers began celebrating the occasion in October, hosting open houses with vendor product demonstrations, lunches, day-of-event discounts on tools and products and door prizes. The celebrations are scheduled to continue into December.
