About GEC General Contractors

GEC General Contractors was established in 1984 by, L.W. Ramsay, Jr. In the beginning, GEC General Contractors’ primary business was the construction of telecommunications towers. GEC General Contractors started providing civil services as a contractor performing clearing, road construction, site preparation, and foundation installation. As the cellular industry evolved, so did GEC General Contractors, by adding the necessary services that allowed us to become a turn-key tower contractor. Because we’re a pioneer in this industry, GEC General Contractors has been involved in most of the major build outs that have taken place in our service area.

Along with our telecommunications interests, GEC General Contractors has expanded our civil infrastructure interests as well. With the addition of key personnel in 2001, we have established a viable presence on the Gulf Coast as an infrastructure contractor. Our civil projects include private subdivision development. public highways and utility construction, site development and land clearing.

GEC General Contractors also offers our deep foundation services as a subcontractor to customers in multiple industries. The primary services offered by our deep foundation division are drilled shafts, pile driving and mass pad foundations. GEC General Contractors maintains a modern fleet for these services that allows us to rapidly deploy at our customer’s request.

We are properly insured, licensed and bonded to work throughout the Southeast. Our qualified personnel and in-house equipment fleet enable us to respond to our customers’ needs in a timely manner. Not only do we employ the most qualified people in their respective fields, but our company’s ownership remains actively engaged and deeply involved in the daily operations.
