Who We Are
Gerald Rich Plumbing was established in 1968 by Gerald A. Rich. The company originally focused on residential and small commercial plumbing projects. In 1973 the company incorporated and became G.A. Rich & Sons, Inc. with Susan Rich as majority stock holder. In 1980 G.A. Rich & Sons performed work on its first water treatment plant. From that day forward the company began to diversify and expand its services to what it is today. G.A. Rich has over 60 valuable employees. One third of our employees have an average of 25 years of employment with us. These employees have a wide range of knowledge and experience capable of handling your mechanical and utility contracting needs. G.A. Rich is fully licensed, bonded and insured.
Our office management team & support staff as well as our field team of foremen, plumbers, pipefitters, operators & laborers are safety conscious and safety trained. Most supervisors are 30 hour OSHA trained and all other field employees are 10 hour OSHA trained. All personnel are CPR & First Aid trained and we pride ourselves on being a drug free company. G.A. Rich & Sons continually receives safety awards from the industry associations we belong to and most recently we received the Certificate of Excellence for Safety from our insurance carrier BITCO Insurance.
G.A. Rich & Sons is located in a small community in central Illinois and believes in giving back to that community. For 50 years G.A. Rich has given it’s time, talent and resources to many community organizations and individual projects such as the development of a new football field for the JFL program. Fundraising for groups like PTO and youth athletic teams can be challenging in a small community but G.A. Rich is always there doing its part to help benefit these organizations. Small communities are like family and we’re family helping family.
