about GM & Sons

Ethic of Dependable Excellence

GM & Sons, Inc. was founded by Elesban (Rick) Gallegos in 1992 with seven people and an old garbage truck for a flatbed. Gallegos later met Karl Schweitzer, a construction manager working for Doan Construction. They talked about the future and realized that each had what the other one needed. In their first year together, those seven guys and their garbage truck generated $1 million in sales. Over the years, the company has strived to expand, growing to a leadership position in the industry.

“Back then, I wanted to be a small company that acted like a big company; but now that we are a big company, we want to act small. What I mean by that is we are a family company, and all of our foremen started here as laborer or finishers and were promoted from within.”

— Karl Schweitzer | General Manager
