The Employees of the Gelinas Companies

Shelly Gelinas is The Gelinas Companies Office Manager. Since early 2010 she has handled the day-to-day operations of the office with her very contagious work ethic. Shelly and her staff also handle the hundreds of calls that come into the company each week.

Tim Gelinas is not excited about his picture being taken but his work ethic says it all. As the Gelinas Companies maintenance manager he is responsible for the crews to have all the needed equipment to perform the high quality work that Gelinas provides. He is also in charge of making sure all trucks and trailers are safe and in good working order. As you see from his picture we do some major repairs ourselves. This keeps the overhead costs down so we pass less onto the consumer.
