JGC originated from the company ClubTec, started as a side-business June 2014, by then LSFD firefighter Jacob Goldsmith. ClubTec was a company that delivered entertainment systems to clubs and other public premises, was hired to organize events, and rented out stages and technical equipment and personell. ClubTec is still part of the JGC family, today under the name JGC Event. ClubTec made big success in Los Santos and eventually grew to become a full-time job for Goldsmith. However, it was a very unstable business as it was dependant on being hired for events which was quite season-based and with a very varying market. Goldsmith had visions of creating a stronger, sustainable corporation that would stand the test of time and offer employment for many more unemployed residents of the local area of Blueberry (where the company started out) and San Andreas in general. This led to the founding of JGC - Jacob Goldsmith Corporation. Based in Blueberry, Red County, JGC would be a holding company for many planned companies, and would serve as a center for business management for all subsidiaries and provide consulting and business services to external clients.
In July 2015, Starks Enterprises led by Elizabeth Starks, formerly known as the Finalbuild founder, merged with JGC due to common interests. Together they bought a previously large Los Santos-based corporation, Best & Mondini Incorporated from the famous Los Santos businessman Robert Mondini. The merge of these three companies led to the new name JGC Industries, a corporation that would hold all companies of all these three previously separate corporations.
In April 2016, the corporate name JGC Industries was changed back to the original name JGC. This was a result of a board decision, with the board's reason being that the previously industrial-dominated corporation had now grown to consist of more service activities than industrial activities.
In March 2017, the corporation has been going under several major changes, as George Gélinas becomes the major shareholder as well as the president.
