Our history & mission


Our Commitment to Clients

For more than 61 years, GAC Contractors has turned a commitment to customer satisfaction into countless successful projects. The GAC Building Division and Site Division with Road and Underground Utilities, which includes Gulf Asphalt and Great Northwest Utility Specialist, work in unison to provide inclusive construction services from conception through completion. 


Founded in 1958 by Charles Hilton and his father Lloyd Hilton, GAC Contractors has utilized a team approach to excel – completing more than $2 Billion of construction. From the onset of each project, we work closely with the owner, engineer, and architect to provide quality work that is completed in a timely and cost efficient manner. Our gold standard level of quality is translated to projects of every size, from a $32,000,000 design/build project for the Florida Department of Transportation to residential subdivisions to simple building remodeling projects. 


Our Commitment to Team Members

At GAC Contractors, our success is rooted in the devotion of our employees, and we in turn maintain a high level of commitment to our team. Although we realize it is impossible to change the world, we strive to make a positive impact for our team members by offering incentives such as our scholarship program, which covers college tuition for children of GAC personnel who finish high school with at least a B average.


One of the keys to our success has been our extensive training that includes the following courses:


- Plan Reading 

- Construction Math 

- Carpentry 

- Utility Construction 

- Asphalt OSHA Requirements 


Our strong commitment to our team members is the main reason that we were awarded the Governor's Business Leadership Award in 1995, an honor that is bestowed on nine businesses in the State of Florida each year in recognition of their innovative operations and civic contributions. Since the award's inception in 1984, GAC Contractors is the only construction company to be honored with this award by the Governor. 


GAC Contractors is proud of our long history of service, and welcomes the opportunity for you to compare us to any other contractor in the Southeast United States. When you are looking for the ultimate in professionalism and integrity, look to GAC Contractors.
