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!
THE TMG TEAM
Thomas wears many hats in the company. He is Director of Operations, which is a catch-all title for sales, service, parts... and anything else that needs to get done around here!

Brian is our resident technical guru. That's not his title, but it should be. He has been troubleshooting, repairing, and providing training on all sorts of equipment for 25+ years.
Pretty much wherever he is needed
Bob was the owner and operator of Spokane Instruments for many years. He decided to join the TMG team in 2017. Bob won't talk your ear off... and he wouldn't EVER say this... but he's pretty good at what he does.
Brittany is the QUEENBEE of our office and has recently celebrated her 12 year anniversary with TMG. She started in the parts & service department, where she gained a great deal of industry knowledge and formed relationships with many of our amazing customers. She is now fully emerged into an inside sales/project management position and loves the challenges and accomplishments. She is our MVP and go to gal! When she’s not working she spends her time making memories with her beautiful family and her puppies!
Becky has been with TMG since August of 2018, and feels like she knows virtually nothing at this point. She answers the phone, and we're hoping to teach her how to use the email machine very soon! Actually... she's very smart and helpful!
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!
Tom is the T (and the G) in TMG Services. He has been helping engineers and end-users specify, design, install and troubleshoot and repair chemical feed systems for 35+ years. Tom loves to tinker, and someday he'll have our TMG demo trailer completed! Actually, Tom mostly does consulting these days. C'mon... 40 years is long enough to commute every day!
Founder & Principal
Mary is the M (and the G) in TMG Services. She has been the company's resident office manager, Human Resources manager, and bookkeeper since way back when. If she isn't doing the books at TMG, she's spending time with her grandchildren.
Michael is our chief fabricator, and he also does most of the installs at customer facilities. If he comes to your site, be sure to ask him about his pride and joy Toyota Cressida collection. They are turbo charged rockets straight outta the 70s!
Scattered Everywhere, mostly OSHG
Rick is a veteran, which is a nice way of saying he's an older gentleman. But with age comes experience, and he's pretty good at solving problems, especially when it comes to onsite sodium hypochlorite generation equipment. But Rick's no one-trick pony - he's no stranger to metering pumps and other kinds of water equipment. And hey, if you need to know how to smoke a turkey or need some advice on fishing for halibut or salmon, drop Rick a line (get it... like a fishing line?!)
Jeff started with TMG in 2015, and has been in outside sales ever since, taking excellent care of Washington municipal customers. If you need some technical advice, especially in the area of chemical feed, then just ask him... whereas he will promptly go to Brian and hit him up for the answers! Jeff loves to read, drive around with his wife in Lola (their Miata), work in the yard, and spend lots of time with his kids and grandkids!

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!
New Kid on the Block
Administration / Human Resources
Hello world… My name is Erin. I am terrible at telling my story, and I need help. Wait… no, not like psychological help, just help with writing this kind of stuff! Okay, here goes… my hero is Mr. Rogers (stop judging!), I’m a Sci-Fi nerd… and I like to march to the beat of my own drum. That said though, I work hard to help the people around me, and I really want to see this company continue to succeed for a very long time! My role at TMG (no pressure) is to assist Mary with bookkeeping and administrative tasks. I’m really looking forward to the challenge and joy of working with everyone affiliated with TMG Services.
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.
