Life Time Member - Carl Gohm
Carl Gohm has been in the Bay Area Association of the Michigan Plumbing and Mechanical Contractors since 1950. He started in business as an apprentice serving under his father in 1946 and became an owner of Gohm Plumbing and Heating in 1954. Carl spent two years in the Navy. His advice to apprentices today would be to learn to weld. Welding is much more important than when Carl began his career.
Carl retired in 1990 and has continued to be an active member of the Bay Area Association where he is active in Political Affairs. He received his journeyman license in 1950 and became a Master Plumber soon after. He held a city license and a heating license during his tenure in business. Carl, a people person recalls that, "Joining the family business gave him a great deal of satisfaction in doing a good job and helping people."
