About Us

GIS Inc. was founded in 1986 with three partners. That original partnership was very brief, as two of the three partners passed away within the first seven months after start-up. This fledgling company forged ahead with the only remaining member of the original partnership, Cheryl Heller. The rest as they say is history, a long and often anxious history, and now GIS is proud to be celebrating its 40 year anniversary soon!

From its humble beginnings to the multi-million dollar company it is today, this small business still focuses on the principles established all those years ago. Although it has evolved many times over, the attention to the customer has not wavered.

GIS’s focus has always been on providing the best service and pricing which explains why we still have many of those same customers who started with us all those years ago. Cheryl is often heard saying, “If we don’t take care of our customers, someone else will be happy to.” Striving for excellence with those companies we serve is instilled in all of the GIS employees, most of whom have been with Cheryl for over 15 years.

If you were once a customer of ours and, for whatever reason, you no longer are, it would be our great pleasure to welcome you back. We are always grateful for the opportunity to earn (or re-earn) your business. You have our solemn promise that if you are dissatisfied for any reason whatsoever with anything that you buy from GIS, we will make it right. We believe in all of our products and we think you will too. 

Won’t you give us a try? We know we can’t be your only supplier, but we want to be your best supplier! Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
