HistoryOn June 1, 1945, brothers August Gallo, Sr. and Louis Gallo, pooled together $800 to start Gallo Plumbing Company. Through the years, the name has evolved from The Gallo Plumbing Company to Gallo Mechanical, L.L.C. today. As the name has changed, so has the breadth of our capabilities – from residential plumbing work to commercial HVAC, plumbing, and mechanical service.
Starting out operations in Louis’s home, Gallo Mechanical now operates out of multiple offices and facilities throughout the Gulf Coast region. With offices in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and Mobile, as well as a fabrication facility in neighboring Hammond, Louisiana, Gallo Mechanical has positioned itself as the go to name in mechanical construction.
Through Gallo’s almost 70 year history, we have remained a family owned and operated company. In 1967, August Gallo, Jr. took over from his father, while his son David Gallo took over for him in 1990. David is currently the President and the CEO of the company. All six of August Jr.’s children (David, Janice, Janet, Stephen, Douglas, and Bryan) currently work at Gallo Mechanical today. In addition, Gallo Mechanical welcomed their first fourth generation Gallo employees in 2013.
In recent history, Gallo Mechanical has focused their sites on the expansion of both the construction and service side of the company. In 2013, Gallo Mechanical opened an office in Mobile, Alabama to serve the Mississippi Gulf Coast through the Florida panhandle. And with an office in Baton Rouge, Gallo is also positioned for new construction and service work from the Baton Rouge Area to the Texas state border. Although Gallo is expanding to a larger geographical area, our commitment to customers and a family-owned atmosphere has remained intact.
