About Us

PampcoAbout Us

We are a New Jersey based wholesaler and manufacturer of building supplies, with roots dating back to 1911. We carry a wide range of building materials that includes sheet metal, roofing, siding and HVAC products.

Our History

We excel in spiral duct systems and architectural roofing products used in new buildings and historic restorations. Our founder, Max Gurtman, was a tin knocker who ran one of the first union shops in New Jersey. As the shop grew, he started supplying some of the smaller shops with materials, which led him to open Passaic Metal. His son Lawrence Gurtman founded PAMPCO in 1933 as a sheet metal wholesaler and distributor. We expanded again in 1973 when his sons Frank and Alan took over and added roofing and siding products for both residential and commercial markets plus pre-fabricated sheet metal and accessories. New locations were opened in Andover, N.J. and Fishkill, N.Y. Frank and Alan worked side by side until Alan passed away in 2001. Finally, Frank’s son, Scott joined the team.

Present Operation

Today, PAMPCO operates seven companies and has expanded its product offerings to include HVAC equipment, fireplaces and tapered roofing services. Customers prefer us because we have one of the largest inventories with a tremendous staff. We operate a complete fleet of trucks, including cranes, booms and moffetts. Each conveniently located branch carries an extensive inventory of HVAC equipment and accessories, sheet metal, roofing, siding and fireplaces to serve our local customers’ needs.

Our Sales Team

Despite our large operation we give individual service from the CEO on down, unlike our huge competitors. Our people are the most professional and service-oriented in the industry and provide solutions with genuine, enthusiastic service. Our sales team is focused on helping customers to troubleshoot system issues and answer technical questions. Our combination of a friendly, professional and technically competent team positions us to best help customers meet their specific job requirements.

Future Growth

Our state-of-the-art computer system links all of the branches on a real-time basis. Combined with our in-house truck fleet, we replenish each branch on an overnight basis. With over 30,000 SKUs in stock we can satisfy all of our customers’ needs and even supply those hard-to-find items.

To stay in the forefront of the latest technology our tapered roofing plan/spec departments have the capability to supply and draw tapered roof drawings and service customers with a complete package, from estimating to the finished product delivered to the job site.

We have now been in business for over100 years and the fourth generation, Scott Gurtman, is ready to take over the business with plans to open two or three more
regional operations with forecasted revenues to exceed $70 million.
