GMS began operations in 1971 in Atlanta, Georgia.
GMS was founded by two partners who prided themselves in building a company comprised of local subsidiary partners who had a vested interest in their business and local communities. GMS operates a network of more than 230 distribution centers in the United States and Canada with the partnership of more than 40 subsidiaries. New England Gypsum is one of those subsidiaries.
