“Over the years Gillis Gilkerson has handled a variety of jobs for Cato Gas & Oil ranging from new construction of convenience stores to remodeling of office buildings. I have always been satisfied with the timelines of the work, quality of construction, and ability to stay on budget.”

~ Michael Abercrombie Jr.,

“Our interest was to find a company who could maintain the historic accuracy of the artifact installation, while being code compliant with confidence in the durability of the job done. Gillis Gilkerson met all three requirements and got the job done. We were very demanding from the beginning. We knew what we wanted and the Gillis team, led by Don Murray, was patient with us and delivered everything we wanted. It has been a very positive experience.”

~Jackie Noller,
Interim Vice President,
Choptank River Lighthouse Society

“We are truly grateful for the care and concern Gillis Gilkerson demonstrated during the entire construction process from the groundbreaking in May 2017 through to our celebratory dedication in April of 2018. We are especially pleased with the leadership and coordination of Don Murray and the day to day attention and care we received from Charles Morris. They, along with the other GGI team members and your many able subcontractors, are to be commended for their outstanding services. They should all be proud of their work.”

~ Tom Shuster,
Project Manager,
St. Paul’s by-the-Sea

“For a design/build project it is unusual for the initial cost estimates and timing to be maintained and in this case the project was completed on time and the costs were held to the contract level. In going into a design/build project like this, one always wonders if the right decision was made on the contractor selected. Now that the project has been completed, I can say that I know we made the right decision with Gillis Gilkerson.”

~ Norman S. Grubb,
Assistant to the President,
USAir Express

“Throughout my 17 years engaging on these types of projects, I can honestly say that Mike (Truitt) was one of the best contractors that I have ever worked with. Throughout the process, Mike provided superior customer service and his communication far exceeded my expectations. Most importantly, he delivered the building on time and with the exact specifications that were discussed. In addition to customer service, Mike and his company provided high-level workmanship. It was clear that Mike took pride in every phase of the project and that pride showed in the final product. Every part of the build out was delivered flawless. Both the interior and exterior of the building are beautiful!”
