Gil-Bar Industries Expands Footprint with New Office in Philadelphia Led by Greg Peifer
Gil-Bar Industries, the Mid-Atlantic’s leading solutions-based equipment provider of high-quality HVAC and filtration systems, has opened a new office location at 711 North York Road in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. The office is Gil-Bar’s fourth location, with locations already in New York City, New Jersey and Long Island. The new office will be led by Greg Peifer, Sales Manager, Gil-Bar Solutions. Peifer was formerly a partner at GBS Limited, which recently merged with Gil-Bar to deliver even more expansive expertise and scale.
The expansion to Philadelphia is the latest in a wider initiative to continue to grow Gil-Bar’s reach into new markets by partnering with leading existing HVAC providers that share Gil-Bar’s culture of high-level expertise, complex service capabilities and uncompromising ethics and client service. As schools, businesses and residences are looking to address indoor air quality concerns in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, Gil-Bar’s expansion is delivering on the increasing need for public health HVAC solutions.
“Greg’s depth of understanding of the regional market will be backed by the full organizational capabilities, partnerships and insights of Gil-Bar’s best-in-class engineering services,” says Chris Bisaccia, Partner, Gil-Bar Industries. “Greg and his team will help us continue to deliver crucial public health and safety work to an even wider base of clients and the public in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas.
Peifer is a Philadelphia area native with an engineering degree from Drexel University, and will continue to grow Gil-Bar’s brand through a combination of deep, long-standing area relationships and an unrivaled knowledge of the local market and its built environment and safety needs.
“The merger with Gil-Bar further enables our team to serve our clients with a truly integrated offering with large-scale capabilities,” says Peifer. “I’m honored to continue Gil-Bar’s long legacy of success on some of the Northeast’s most complex and high-profile engineering projects, and I look forward to helping Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware residents worry less about the safety of the spaces where they live, work and relax.”
Gil-Bar offers turnkey-integrated services from design consultation through specification, installation, certification, replacement parts and maintenance, and prides itself on preserving a unique family culture, of which every client is a part. The firm delivers more than 5,200 projects per year, with more than 85 percent of its business coming from repeat clients. The recently expanded brand will field a team of more than 60 degreed sales engineers and leverage long-standing relationships with more than 40 of the world’s leading manufacturers, including major filtration, ionization and UV light technology providers, to help combat the spread of Covid-19 and other pathogens.
