Shelton began Shelton Fireworks at age 19 back in 1975 with a 4x8 foot stand at the edge of his hometown of
Missouri. His youngest brother, Scott, was 10 years old and wanted to go out and mind the stand for his brother.
Tallpaul (dad) then became involved because he tagged along with Scott. Pictured

Greg's expansion started after
his graduation from college in 1978. He built three Missouri warehouses in 1978-79 & 81.
In 1992, Greg started his Indiana expansion with his first effort at Fremont.
Son, Scott went to manage Fremont and now has 37 years experience selling fireworks at the tender age of 47.
Tallpaul has spent the season with Scott over the past 20 years. In the early 2000s,
Greg built warehouses at Fair Play, and Blacksburg, South Carolina. Alabama was next at
Robertsdale and Cusseta.
Son, Gary, manages the biggest
Shelton warehouse at Exit 22B, Interstate 94, Porter, Indiana, which was built in 1993.
At this time, Greg has 14 warehouses in Missouri, Indiana, South Carolina and
Alabama. Tallpaul & Hazel like to go to Robertsdale, Alabama, for its big show on
New Years Eve. The crowd really shows up for their celebration supplies. Greg has made several trips to
China over the years as a majority of our fireworks come directly over to
the U.S. on containers from China.
