ABOUT TMG

40th Anniversary.jpg

Since 1981

Tom and Mary Gazdik started TMG services in 1981, using the initials of their combined names to form the company name (we know... original, right?). Anyway,  the company was initially started to become a service contractor for Wallace & Tiernan chlorine gas equipment.  Since then, TMG has expanded the team on its way to  to becoming a manufacturer's representative, distributor, fabricator and authorized service center for a number of equipment manufacturers in water and wastewater. Though we help our customers generate, store, dilute, measure, feed, mix, control and inject many types of chemicals into their industrial and municipal systems, we like to say that...

Chlorination is our fixation!

Erika Boswell
Parts Specialist
Service Scheduling

After many years in the glass business, Erika wanted to try a more fluid industry like water/wastewater (oh, we crack ourselves up with these puns)! So she may be a water rookie, but nevertheless she’s a seasoned business pro. However, let’s address the elephant in the room, shall we? Actually, it’s in Erika’s pocket. It seems she has a rather odd affinity for elephants, and claims they bring you good luck. So if you come in to the office, be sure to ask to see her pet elephant. However, since it’s made of glass, please do NOT attempt to feed it!

After 40 years in purchasing for a hospital in Illinois, Joan is new to the Northwest. Currently she is helping with the phones and Parts sales... so if you've called, you've likely already heard her friendly voice.

Teresa Corrington
Territory Manager
Municipal Sales - Oregon, Alaska,
Idaho & Montana

She’s baaaaaaack! Yes, after a seven year “vacation”, Teresa is happy to be back home at TMG Services. She’s been busy during her absence though. Now she’s ready to take her passion and experience to help municipalities throughout Oregon, Alaska, Idaho and Montana. But be patient… she’s a little rusty (pardon the pun)! More than a few things have changed in the chemical feed biz. And let’s face it, she’s gonna milk that excuse for as long as possible!

Noel Burciaga
Service Technician
Pacific Northwest

Noel is relatively new to the water/wastewater industry. Nevertheless, he’s always been mechanically inclined and likes to work with his hands. He enjoys troubleshooting and solving problems. He’s also bi-lingual – with the ability to speak, read and write in Spanish.  One of Noel’s passions is Japanese cars, especially Nissans (which he jokingly calls 90’s junk). He really likes tinkering with anything that has a motor. On the weekends, you can mostly find him at the local drift track events. If you run into him, he may invite you to ride along.

Greg Linn

In his time off, Greg enjoys traveling or being outside landscaping his yard (which he calls a jungle). Greg comes to us with many years in the construction industry. He is considered a full-charge bookkeeper and is excellent with A/R collections. If you need a copy of your invoice, he’s your guy!

After 31 years of working in the drinking water business, I have found it’s far better to work with smaller companies like TMG. You get to know the company and the people better. By knowing and relying on the same service techs and office staff, they develop a history of your equipment and have a better understanding when something fails. You become one team that works together for failures, service and pricing of equipment. Thank You TMG for making my past working career successful. Myself and the City of Warrenton water customers Thank You  - Bob B.
