Ghilotti Bros., Inc.

If you have lived or worked in the Bay Area in the last 100 years, you probably have heard of the success story of James Ghilotti, the Italian immigrant, who coming to San Rafael in 1910, started a small construction company after his arrival.

The fruits of his labor, Ghilotti Bros., Inc. employs more than 185 individuals working in 11 Bay Area counties and generating annual revenues in excess of $100 million per year.

Along the way, GBI has contributed not only monetarily but with our time and resources to several hundred organizations in our community. To further enhance this effort, GBI employees established the GBI Giving Back Program in 2009. These efforts following the footsteps of our founder James Ghilotti’s philosophy, “Earn respect by doing a job well, treat employees with courtesy and respect, and do good work for the community in which you live and work. “

As third generation and with the fourth generation working summers as family members, Mike and Dante are blessed with the foundation established by the hard work and dedication James Ghilotti, Mario, Willie, Dino and Babe Ghilotti gave so tirelessly to this company!

Without their extraordinary efforts and tremendous sacrifices, we would not be here today. Equally deserving gratitude are the many loyal employees that have become family over the years through their exemplary effort and lengthy service.

While celebrating our 104th year of business, we reflect on the good fortune of living and working in the most beautiful place on Earth and appreciate the legacy of doing quality construction in Marin. We believe it is our privilege and our responsibility to help others in our community and why we are so excited to be a partner in the “Giving Marin” program, where in each month GBI will support two to three deserved non-profit organizations by sponsoring their outreach in the Marin IJ.
