Gem Ice was started in 1979.

Gerald Moyer heard there was a need and high demand for ice in the Columbia Gorge and decided to pack up his family, make the move to The Dalles, OR and start an ice company.

Gerald’s success came from his commitment to great customer service and his pride in the company he built   The new owners of Gem Ice plan to continue running their business with a focus on great customer service.
