The GAMCO story is one of vision, hard work and commitment to excellence. The company was founded by John Chang and his wife Beatrice Chew as a full-service storefront glazing, installation company, for builders and property owners in New York City. Despite their diligence and attention to detail, they were not satisfied with the quality and service GAMCO’s fenestration suppliers offered. Chang and Chew then made the bold move away from installation services to manufacturing products themselves. This change of focus enabled GAMCO to deliver the quality, customization and design distinction its customers demanded.
GAMCO has since expanded its physical plant twice. Its strategic growth has been carefully planned and steady, each step responding to an opportunity to fulfill a market need or set a trend. GAMCO has cultivated a vast network of dealers to handle sales and installations, and is expanding outside the New York City region along the East Coast.
Strengths and Capabilities
GAMCO products are consistently the highest in quality, made with old-world custom craftsmanship that only expert fabricators can render. Its fenestration systems are designed to completely integrate with other architectural elements, with exactly matching finishes and style on every component.
GAMCO’s experience and dedication is apparent in all aspects of a project – from concept, through engineering and production to delivery. The firm’s highly trained and longtime staff has developed and honed the company’s technical expertise. Because GAMCO began as an installation firm, its knowledge of building construction ensures flawless product customization every time.
GAMCO’s customer service is exemplary, evident from the moment of consultation to project completion. Reliability is paramount for GAMCO, and its customers have come to expect the high level of confidence and satisfaction that GAMCO delivers.
