Gilmore Services will break ground in April on another 7,500 square foot commercial record storage building which will be able to store another 50,000 standard sized record storage boxes. This new facility will bring Gilmore Services the overall capacity to safely and securely store and track over a million record storage boxes.
Additionally, Gilmore Services is expanding its Off-Site paper shredding services facility and adding a new On-Site Mobile Shredding truck to its current fleet of trucks to meet the ever growing demand for secure information and data destruction.
“Gilmore Services, originally Gilmore Moving and Storage, was founded in 1955 by my father James W. Gilmore (Jim). Our company started out the old-fashioned way, with one truck and one employee, and we specialized in local and long distance moving,” stated Ronnie Gilmore, President. Today, Gilmore Services employs more than 50 people.
Over the next two years, it is estimated that Gilmore Services will add an additional 15 new jobs to meet the demand of its growing Records Storage, Document Imaging, Shredding and Moving business operations.
“In obtaining the State of Alabama contract for shredding in January 2013, our service area has grown significantly, and with the hire of a new sales director, Jim Beran, in February 2013, we believe we are positioned extremely well for continued growth,” said Jacob Gilmore, VP of Finance.
Gilmore family members, and its employees, have been very active in the Pensacola community over the years by serving on the boards and/or committees of many different civic, business and church organizations.
“Our commitment to Pensacola businesses and the community is evident in our family’s financial investment to the area, and we are dedicated to the revitalization effort to grow jobs in Pensacola,” said Lucas Gilmore, VP of Operations.
