TEMA Roofing Services: ‘Give Back, Be Part of the Community’

The Business Journal emailed family businesses and asked them to share their family lore – often-told anecdotes, mottos, favorite sayings, advice or rules of thumb that are maintained and still relevant today. Here’s one of the responses:

TEMA Roofing Services, Girard

Traditions are passed down from generation to generation, and at TEMA Roofing Services, our legacy will always be a family-first attitude and dedication to doing things the right way.

TEMA’s commercial roofing knowledge spans three generations, and as a woman-owned business, the success we realize today is rooted in the hard work and persistence of our founders and mentors, Thomas Froelich Jr., Margaret Froelich and Bill Charles.

Along with the commercial roofing aspect of the business, our practice of giving back to – and being part of – the community has always been a driving principle. Whether it’s spending a day volunteering or joining local, regional and national organizations to continually learn and evolve, the Froelich family is dedicated to keeping the Mahoning Valley and surrounding areas at the forefront.

In 2023 alone, vice presidents Scott Froelich and Justin Froelich received honors for their work in the Mahoning Valley. Scott was named president of the Builders Association of Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania, and Justin was named business advocate of the year at the Regional Chamber’s Family Owned Business Awards for his work with organizations like the United Way. Scott is also a member of the American Seniors Housing Association.

Taking care of the community will never go out of style, and, just like our drive to be leaders in the commercial roofing industry, our passion for making a difference will continue with each generation of TEMA Roofing.
