We Build People
Gulf Services was built around people and today, employees are still our most valued asset. We are proud of the outstanding individuals who form the very core of our organization. Some of our employees have been with us since the inception of Gulf and their project and field experiences have helped build our reputation as a top tier company. Our people are committed to not simply serving customers but to retaining customers year after year.
L.W. (Woodie) Ramsay, Jr. established Gulf Equipment Corporation – GEC in 1984.
Woodie and his brother, John C. Ramsay, have worked together since their youth and are a testament that hard work and client service builds a successful company. In the early years, their primary business was the construction of telecommunication towers. As the cellular industry evolved and grew, so did the company by adding the necessary services to become a turnkey tower contractor. The Ramsay’s are known as a pioneer in that industry.
The company expanded into civil work, utility construction, public highway development, site development, foundations and a wide array of service offerings working not only in wireless, but other industries. Today, the company self performs all of their foundation and construction work with an in-house equipment fleet allowing them to respond timely and bid competitively.
