Building Excellence


who we are

Originally founded in Winston-Salem, NC in 1978 with just four employees, Shelco has grown to become one of the largest general contractors in the Southeast.

Our shared philosophy of Building Excellence has resulted in decades of successful high-quality projects and many satisfied clients. With 2023 revenues of $393 million, we are one of the most respected privately-held general contracting companies in the Southeast.

Our firm is owned and managed by key executive team members, with Ed Rose serving as our Chief Executive Officer and Brendan Bambrick as our President. Shelco has the breadth of resources required to match an ideal project manager and construction team to meet each client’s unique needs.

Whether it’s industrial construction, healthcare construction, or general construction, our company believes in a strong, traditional work ethic where service, quality and precision are never compromised. This dedication and attention to detail has earned us nearly 86% repeat business and industry honors – but above all else, our commitment to client care has earned us what we covet most, the trust of those we serve.
