GemSeal is pleased to announce that Lee Lowis, a 42-year veteran in the sealcoat industry, has been named to the position of President of GemSeal. Lee began his career as a sealcoat contractor and Certified Tennis Court Builder. Prior to joining GemSeal, Lee served as Vice President and co-owner of Surface Coatings Company, a sealcoat manufacturer based in Auburn Hills, Michigan, which GemSeal acquired in 2012. Since joining the company, Lee has held a number of senior management positions. Lee’s broad depth of knowledge and experience in the pavement maintenance industry will enable GemSeal to continue its over-60-year tradition of providing the highest-quality products and exceptional service to customers.
Jeff Lax, the former President and CEO of GemSeal, is no longer with the company. Jeff had been the leader of the business since 2008. During his tenure, the company grew from four sealcoat manufacturing plants to the business it is today. Jeff led the acquisitions of GemSeal from the Mariani family in 2008, Surface Coatings in 2012, and recently the six branch locations of Professional Pavement Products. The company currently has a network of nine manufacturing plants and ten storefront locations spanning the eastern half of the United States. GemSeal is grateful for and appreciates Jeff’s 10-year leadership of the business and wishes him the very best in his future endeavors.
