Dedicated to Success Since 1983
CEO and co-founder Gary Simone started his first construction company back in 1983 in New Jersey focusing on residential projects. In the early ’90s the company expanded into retail and commercial markets serving many large national clients in the tri-state area. In 2005, Gary and his two partners (Darrin Simone and George Rutigliano) opened an office in Sarasota Florida and created 1st Choice Industries, which has now grown into a national construction company. 1st Choice Industries’ focus is on quality, communication, on-time delivery, and budget management. The company now employs more than 65 employees, field staff and office support.
1st Choice Industries is also active in the community with involvement in several business development organizations, local Chambers of Commerce and various charitable groups.
