Founded in 2015, TEMA Roofing Services may not be the oldest roofing company in the Youngstown area, but behind its name lies decades of experience in the roofing industry.
TEMA President Tom Froelich, Jr. got his start at Roth Bros. in 1984, where he started in HVAC sales. He worked his way up through the company, and in 2000 became vice president of their roofing division. In 2006 he bought Roth Bros., and then along with his partners, sold it in 2011.
Tom stayed with Roth Bros. until 2013, and in 2015 started TEMA Roofing Services with his wife, Margaret (Meg) Froelich. They initially had trouble deciding on a name for their new company, but Meg proposed a combination of their first and middle names–Thomas Edmund and Margaret Ann.
Meg Froelich not only serves as TEMA’s CFO, but also as majority owner. And, it was at Roth Bros. that Tom was mentored by his father-in-law, Bill Charles, who still acts as a senior consultant for TEMA.
