Business of the Month:
Ben’s General Contracting
Celebrating/Commemorating 40 years of Business
Bens General was founded in Freeport 40 years ago by Ben Jackson and has been a trusted and an award-winning contractor in the NY and Long Island area.
Starting out with 1 employee, a hammer and a vision has now grown to an incredible team of 26 employee’s with clear roles and responsibilities. Getting there was not easy, but hard work, integrity, dedication and building trust with client relationships that have lasted a life time has paid off. Customer service has played a major part in the success of the company.
Bens success had led to the inception of additional companies: Triton Materials offering flood resistant construction materials and Upper Level Drones a drone surveying company.
Very rooted in Freeport, Ben has sat on the Planning Board and currently sits on the Zoning Board, Landmarks Planning Commission and is Executive Vice President of the Freeport Chamber. Ben has heavily advocated for Hurricane Sandy victims and volunteered 100’s of hours with United Friends of America, a nonprofit organization which he started after Hurricane Sandy.
Thank you for being part of our past and we look forward to the future together!
Freeport is a village in the town of Hempstead, Nassau County, New York, US, on the South Shore of Long Island. The population was 43,713 at the 2010 census.
A settlement since the 1640s, it was once an oystering community and later a resort popular with the New York City theater community. It is now primarily a bedroom suburb but retains a modest commercial waterfront and some light industry. It is serviced by the Freeport station on the Long Island Rail Road.
