About Us

Gil-Bar combines its unmatched engineering expertise and fully integrated service offering with a truly unique culture.

Simply put, it’s about treating every client, manufacturer, and employee like family and working relentlessly for their success.

It’s a culture rooted in the values of Founders Joe Sbarra and John Gill, and it’s been with us from the firm’s beginnings in the basement of a house in Brooklyn. It means we never run from a problem and we never rest until that problem is solved.  It’s why 86% of our business comes from returning clients.

We have offices in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

We partner with building developers, architects, engineers, and contractors

Our Values

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.


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.


Working alongside the people at Gil-Bar is a terrific opportunity to learn from the absolute best problem-solvers in the industry, and be part of the most notable construction projects in the area. The talented team of highly-motivated individuals treat each other like family, and encourage and support growth through various programs and on-the-job training. Gil-Bar’s 35+ year longevity benefits from this core culture, as it has a reputable history of many employees continually growing with the firm throughout the duration of their entire career.
