GBS Building Supply has been chosen as one of South Carolina’s 25 Fastest Growing Companies. The winners were honored at a luncheon at the Columbia Marriott October 21.

GBS Building Supply is a full­ service lumberyard that also provides roofing, millwork, house wrap, cabinetry, installed stone, and other products needed for construction, including “green” building materials. While GBS Building Supply provides the highest quality products, the company prides itself on customer service, innovation, and a commitment to the community.

The SC 25 Fastest Growing Companies competition is presented by The Capital Corporation. Primary sponsors are Scott & Company CPAs, Wells Fargo, McNair Attorneys, Columbia Business Monthly, and Greenville Business Magazine.

Other sponsors are Clemson University’s Rutland Institute for Ethics; the George Dean Jonson, Jr., College of Business and Economics at the University of South Carolina Upstate, and the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce.

Representatives of Capital Corp., Scott & Company and other sponsors made on-site visits of nominees to interview key personnel and view company operations.

“We had a very strong field this year,” said George Moseley, principal of Capital Corporation.

“We were impressed with the energy and passion we saw on the site visits,” said Don Mobley, managing member of Scott and Company.

“We love the opportunity to recognize the growth of South Carolina’s companies,” said Lori Coon, publisher of Columbia Business Monthly and Greenville Business Magazine.

Once all the data is in hand, the selections are made. Winners are notified, but not given their ranking until the awards luncheon.

The keynote speaker of this year’s ceremony was Jack Jones, vice president and general manager of Boeing South Carolina.
