Introducing Gil-Bar Industries

Today’s construction industry requires ever-higher sophistication in design, technology, and integration. Short-term economy must be balanced with long-term sustainability and enduring performance. Expectations for customization are rising.

Gil-Bar Industries was built from the ground up to meet these challenges. We start with our deep and enduring relationships with over 40 of the world’s best manufacturers.

But our value goes well beyond the products we represent. At its heart, we deliver a combination of three characteristics that are rare on their own and almost never found together:

Gil-Bar Industries in New York provided HVAC solutions to The Time Warner Center

1. Engineering Expertise:

We offer deeper engineering experience than our competition in order to help our clients navigate the most complex technical challenges.

2. Total Integration:

From off-the-shelf equipment to the most innovative custom applications, from design through installation and maintenance, Gil-Bar Industries works as one to give each of our clients the optimal integrated solution.

3. A Culture of Family:

We’re a technologically sophisticated company that operates with an old-school commitment to getting down into the trenches and meeting each challenge right by our clients’ sides. Because we see all our employees and clients as part of our family, and we work relentlessly for their success.

Gil-Bar has become the largest and most comprehensive provider of HVAC solutions in New York and New Jersey, because we bring these three characteristics together like no other firm.

From its very beginnings in a residential home in Brooklyn, back in 1986, Joe Sbarra and John Gill built a company capable of getting the job, any job, done.

This unique skill-set and philosophy has allowed us to attract not just the most, but the best, HVAC engineers in the business. And, as the ultimate test, it’s the reason 86% of our business comes from returning clients.


Gil-Bar. Beyond The Blueprint

Our Vision

At Gil-Bar, we believe HVAC is about a lot more than just moving air. It’s about creating places where we can live our best lives and do our best work. It requires understanding the total indoor environmental experience, and providing optimal thermal and acoustical comfort. And we know that doing so, efficiently and sustainably, is an ever- greater engineering challenge.

Our Mission

We partner with building developers, architects, engineers, and contractors. We help design, install, problem-solve, and service the right custom HVAC solution for every building. We do it with the largest and most experienced team of degreed application engineers in the industry. And we treat every client, manufacturer, and employee as part of the Gil-Bar family.

Our Values

These values guide how we do business at Gil-Bar


We believe there’s a solution for every problem, no matter how large or small. We don’t run from challenges, we embrace them. They’re what makes this business interesting, and they’re where we get a chance to really shine.


We know what it takes to find the best solutions: experience built on a base of intelligence, sharpened with an engineering-educated mindset, and seasoned by deep contact with the real world. The experience to anticipate and close the gap between what works best on a blueprint and what will work best in a building.


But it’s not easy; it never is. So the question becomes: how do we react when the going gets tough? We never give up. We roll up our sleeves, and work with our clients and factories, and keep working for as long as it takes to get to the answer that meets everyone’s needs.

No Excuses:

We warranty our quality on every project and offer ongoing support through the entire construction process. We don’t accept excuses; we’re dedicated to finding solutions that protect everyone involved. We do what we say we’ll do.

Better Together:

We know we’re strongest when we work together. From how we collaborate to solve problems within the company, to how we organize our businesses to provide uniquely integrated solutions for our clients, we’re focused on bringing out the best in every team and for every client.


These instincts for protection and collaboration come from our belief in family values. Gil-Bar started as a family company in the basement of a residential home, and those family values are woven into the culture of our company. This means treating everyone in the firm, and every client, as if they’re one of our own. Because they are. And we have their backs, no matter what.
