Gerber Marking 75th Year as Plumbing Supplier

Woodridge, IL — Gerber Plumbing Fixtures LLC, the Woodridge, IL-based manufacturer of vitreous china plumbing fixtures, faucets and fittings, is marking its 75th anniversary in 2007.

The company, part of Globe Union Group, marked the milestone in part by moving recently into a new 250,000-sq.-ft. headquarters that includes a distribution center, showroom and training center.

“The new facility serves as a revitalized space, allowing us to embrace our past as we accelerate into the future,” offered Gerber chairman Ila Lewis, whose grandfather, Max Gerber, founded the company in 1932.

“Reaching our 75th anniversary is a testament to our relationship with plumbing professionals and an extension of my grandfather’s dedication to quality and customer service,” Lewis said.
