GEM Electric Supply Inc., located in Illinois, is a wholesale distributor of "electrical supplies, lighting fixtures, hardware, and home furnishings”. The company was founded in 1970 by Bill Conrad and John Manning. There are four different store locations; the Alsip location was opened in August of 1994. The Alsip building was the largest acquired by GEM, and the extra space allowed the business to expand to more goods than just electrical supplies. The company is family owned and run with three generations having managed the stores.
