Groff's Heating, Air Conditioning, Plumbing, Electrical & Refrigeration has come a long way in the first decade. In 1995 Devon Groff , Laverne Hess and Jason Denlinger began Groff's Heating in the Canton area. Devon initiated this as a separate business venture after operating Groff's Heating in the Lancaster area.
The new business developed when Marvin B. Groff, father of Devon considered retiring from his one man heating and plumbing business. Devon saw this as an opportunity to provide needed service to the area. Laverne Hess, one of Devon's technician's at the Lancaster branch desired to move his family to northern Pennsylvania. He became service manager. Jason Denlinger already lived in Canton and had experience working in sales for a heating company. He joined the management team as president and salesman. In 1995 (Groff's Inc.) was incorporated and began servicing new customers in the Canton/Williamsport area. Marvin Groff generously offered the use of his office and warehouse.
Business began to pick up and grow. We hired more employees. With new contractors and customers Groff's began serving a much larger area, extending south to Selinsgrove, north into New York, west into Clinton County and east to Benton. In 2000 Groff's Inc. rented a large dairy barn down the road from the original location. The new location offered room for growth with 12,000 sq. feet of office and warehouse space.
By 2006 we performed work for 17 different contractors and installed 20 geothermal units. In March 2007 we faced an unexpected loss as our Lord called Laverne Hess to his eternal home. A great team of nine employees pulled together during this challenging time to keep customers serviced and satisfied. This was a testimony to the emphasis Groff's places on teamwork and quality customer service.
Today Groff's continues to offer diverse installation and service for residential and commercial customers. Groff's service area and customer base continues to grow. We are happy to offer excellent employment opportunities to dedicated and committed employees who join our team.
