THE HISTORY

It started with a need

From humble beginnings in 1977, Gary & Rose Poborsky began GAP Pollution and Environmental Control (our sister company). After a major flood that year in Johnstown, Gary purchased one used Septic Truck for pumping flooded basements, storm and sanitary pipe TV inspection, and other cleanup work. Over the years GAP P.E.C. has grown to become the industry leader through innovation and superior service personnel.

An operator's perspective

In growing GAP P.E.C., Gary and the employees of GAP began to modify equipment to meet their needs and become more efficient. This then led to them building their own equipment.

Challenging the technology

In 1989, GapVax was born to design and manufacture the highest quality equipment that would meet and exceed the needs and applications of GAP P.E.C. GapVax has grown to be the leading manufacturer of industrial vacuum equipment through innovation and application at GAP P.E.C. With the team of highly skilled and dedicated workers here in Johnstown, PA GapVax manufacturers the highest quality, top performance products of anywhere else in the country. We listen...and we deliver.
