Without the vision of Millard Fowler, Paul Gore, and Dean Graham, G and G Operators would certainly not be the company that it is today. Each one of these men have helped to shape G and G into a well respected company that provides the Texas Panhandle with quality service in a fair and professional manner.
In 1972, after 13 years of employment with the company, Paul Gore purchased F&G Concrete in Boise City, Oklahoma from Millard Fowler and changed the name to Gore Construction. By 1976 the company was booming and to keep up with the pace, Paul purchased Transmix Concrete in Dalhart, Texas, Boise City, Oklahoma, and Elkhart, Kansas.
In 1980, Dean Graham went to work for Paul in Dalhart, Texas. Paul sold the concrete businesses in 1981, and started a new business called Gore Enterprises. Gore Enterprises' focus was feed yard maintenance and grain hauling services. In 1981, Dean met Gay Cook and by 1982, they were married. They eventually had 3 children, Chansee, Chase, and Chanessa, which have all helped play a role in the success of the family company. In 1994, Paul gave Dean and Gay an opportunity to purchase 25% of Gore Enterprises. It was at that time the name was changed and G and G (Gore & Graham) Operators was created. As time progressed, G and G Operators changed its business model from feed yard maintenance and grain hauling, to primarily servicing Dalhart and the surrounding areas with dirt excavation and construction services.
In 2010, a new venture was started with family friend, Kurtis Thomas. In typical G and G fashion, a vision was had to meet the growing demand for this service. G and G Paving and Concrete was opened alongside G and G Operators in Dalhart. With this streamlined addition, G and G is capable of building any road or pad from a variety of materials including asphalt, chipseal, crushed caliche, rough caliche, crushed concrete, or crushed asphalt.
But the growing did not stop there, in 2013 G and G Operators purchased a concrete plant in Dalhart. This plant is able to better serve the needs of our customers and allows G and G Operators the ability to not only provide equipment services but can now supply most all of its own materials.
The most recent purchase came in 2015, with an opportunity to purchase a company out of Dumas, Texas. G and G was now able to grow outside of Dalhart and with this purchase came an asphalt plant. The Dumas operation has been very successful in a short time and has now allowed G and G Operators to be able to provide any type of material or service to the Panhandle. The Dumas operation is managed by Dean and Gay's nephew, Travis Juilfs.
With the recent growing G and G Operators has been able to sell several different materials whether it is from one of our crushing sites, concrete plant, asphalt plant, or just landscape materials from one of our many locations. We service and provide materials not only to the public but city, county, and state agencies.
Dean and Gay are very excited to say that all of their children and their spouses play a role in the day to day work at G and G Operators. Their son, Chase Graham, is the current Operations Manager in Dalhart, along with his wife Rebecca Graham which does any of the daily tasks that may arise. Chase Graham is also beginning to take over many of the daily responsibilities of the business. The oldest daughter Chansee 'Graham' Carrit and her husband Josh Carrit own a trucking company which helps with the daily deliveries of a variety of products along with assisting in the shop. The youngest daughter Chanessa "Graham' Slama along with her husband Judd Slama handle the day to day activities handling feed for a large supplier here in Dalhart. G and G prides itself on being family oriented and family ran with all of the siblings along with close family friend Kurtis Thomas holding partnership in the business.
G and G Operators has a group of over 90 employees several which have been here for over 5 years and up to 30 years. We offer competitive wages, benefits, and EOY bonuses.
