Galmor’s Inc. originated in the summer of 1964 as a joint venture of Bobby Galmor and Red Davis when they decided to open an oilfield supply store in Shamrock, TX. They serviced the Texas Panhandle and Western Oklahoma areas with general oilfield supplies and artificial lift equipment. Bobby moved his family from Borger, TX to Shamrock to run the operation shortly thereafter.
In 1970 Bobby’s sons, Steve and Rudas, established G&G Trucking which began as a hay hauling service. In 1975 they converted their company to G&G Steam Services which specialized in steaming rods and tubing and heating oil. They began with humble beginnings, starting with a 1964 model International truck and a 1948 model boiler operated by Steve and Rudas.
In 1980 they expanded the operation to include roustabout and backhoe services. In 1985 Steve and Rudas moved to Elk City, OK forming another operation alongside G&G Steam Services called Galmor’s Inc. They came to Elk City with 5 hands and 7 trucks. Times were hard at first because of the bust of the oil boom in the mid 1980’s. Their office had a shower and a couch, which would serve as their second home for the beginning years. Richard York, hired in 1985, was the last of the original hands brought to Elk City from Shamrock. He had over 30 years of experience in the oilfield.
In 2000 Steve opened another operation in Bridgeport, TX to service the Barnett Shale Activity. This allowed them to expand, getting into the trucking and dozer business. This operation moved to Montague, TX in 2008 under the supervision of Jason Garrett.

In mid 2011, Galmor’s opened the gates to it’s latest venture; A gypsum rock pit. It is located five miles north of Shamrock, TX. This type of rock is used in building locations and lease roads.
We never turn down any job. Galmor’s has done it all from pouring curbs for the city and digging swimming pools for the residents of Elk City to building locations and commercial dirt work at Ft. Sill. No job is ever considered too small, too large, or not within their area of expertise. We have the necessary skills and experience to handle all kinds of oilfield construction, from the low pressure pumping wells of the Texas panhandle to the high-pressure gas wells of Western Oklahoma. Our experience in the oilfield paved the way for our transition to the varied world of commercial and general construction.
Through the years every employee has pitched in to make Galmor’s what it is today. A family oriented business with a strong work ethic and loyalty. Everyone has joined together to make Galmor’s what it is today, a company with over 200 employees, 25 semi-trucks, and over 60 pieces of heavy equipment.
