George Home Services has evolved from a family owned Plumbing & Heating Company that was born in 1954 in Lebanon Pa. by a WWII Marine Corp Veteran. After returning from home at the end of WWII and learning the trades thru the GI bill, George Strohm Jr. started installing some of the first indoor bathrooms and hydronic heating systems in Lebanon County. George always talked about his pet monkey in the South Pacific, that all his buddy’s called George, and the reason we have adopted our mascot “ George the Monkey “
His son Tom Strohm took over in 1985 after growing up in the business, and is still a current owner along with a co-owner Dan Grumbine, an Army veteran who was originally brought on board as a business coach and adviser. Dan became a partner in 2018 and started looking to expand the company, by looking for other quality Plumbing and HVAC Companies with owners looking to retire. They first acquired Hlavaty Plumbing, Heating and Cooling in Pine Grove, then Flex Mechanical in Pottsville, as well as Lycoming Heating Co. In Williamsport, and are always looking for another opportunity help another owner enjoy retirement.
After operating four separate companies and the challenges that entails, they discussed adding more types of services to keep the Tech’s busy in the slower spring and fall months and the possibility of reeling them all in under one corporation, GEORGE HOME SERVICES became reality.
They still offer what got them all started, Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, water conditioning, well pumps, drain cleaning duct cleaning they now are offering sales and service of swimming pools, hot tubs, gas fireplaces, wood stoves, outdoor living supplies, gazebos, wood and charcoal grills and patio fire places.
