We Love What We Do
Here's Our story
by, Mike Shelton
Let me introduce my company and myself – I am Michael Shelton Owner of Gorilla Corp. I started in construction in 1978 as a Union Drywall hanger in the Los Angeles area (1506 and 2361 Carpenter Local), where I became an expert in Hanging Drywall (residential construction and commercial construction).
In 1986 I relocated to Georgia and spent time in New Jersey and started my very own Residential Drywall Business (Hanging & Finish of Drywall).
In 1990 I relocated to Florida and started a Metal Framing and Drywall Company where I built store fronts, timeshares and residential construction throughout Florida until economy fell 2007-2008. Then I moved back to California and obtained my general Contractor License.
In 2010 I Establish Gorilla Corp.
How did I get the name Gorilla Corp?
Construction has a jungle atmosphere. I call construction The Concrete Jungle.
A jungle is a forest thick with trees (commercial builders), other plants (residential construction), and animals (other construction company). Jungles are a little dangerous ( building the project), which is what people mean when they say, “It’s a jungle out there!”
Gorillas are Leader of The Jungle (I will take control of the project from start to finish).
Gorillas protect their families (I will protect your property and your family).
I enjoy building and transforming thing from old to new, making sure the project keeps the integrity of the neighborhood and building something from nothing to something.
