Geary Pacific has been in business since 1961. Our founder, Pat Geary, came to California from Minnesota in 1948. He went to work in the sheet metal industry as an apprentice and eventually worked his way up to foreman. Pat soon got involved in the heating and air conditioning end of the business and became a contractor. By 1961, he was ready to go into business for himself. Pat and his cousin Charlie rented a 2,800 square foot lemon & orange packing house and began with two product lines and one delivery truck.
