GEM’s Mechanical Services Division is staffed with craft labor that includes iron workers, pipefitters, carpenters, equipment operators, inspectors and foremen, all led by an experienced project management staff. We are a licensed contractor with a steel erection program certified by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), and maintain our own fabrication and welding facility in Knoxville, Tennessee.
