In 1955, Robert (Bob) R. Remer, Sr. formed Remer Plumbing & Heating Company. In 1957, when Dick Katz was just 24 years old, he began a partnership with the late Bob Remer that was to become Remer Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. (Remer). Upon Bob Remer's retirement in 1990, Katz became President of the company. He wakes at the crack of dawn, arrives at his office by 7:00 a.m. every day and, in 54 years, has not missed a day of work.
