DeSimone was founded in 1974 by Dennis DeSimone. For approaching 50 years, the company has specialized in custom commercial construction and custom residential homes. Its current President/CEO Anthony DeSimone and Sr. Leaders Dennis and Albert DeSimone personally meet with all prospective clients and take great pride in each unique project. DeSimone has earned a solid reputation for quality work and customer satisfaction throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware.
How We Started
1980s & 1990s
Significant to DeSimone’s roots: The company’s original pineapple logo and “The Hospitality Company” tagline reflects its roots in residential construction. For two decades, this brass pineapple greeted clients visiting the office. The wood plane speaks to the company’s value and commitment to provide old world craftsmanship in each of its projects. Dennis’ The Bank of Gloucester County Directorship plaque denotes the company’s period of expansion in the commercial construction space. The 1997 photograph, featuring Dennis with other Anderson Window Company graduates, symbolizes the company’s expertise and focus on offering only the best and most valuable products to clients.
When Dennis (pictured next to the sign) transitioned from the field to the office to complete the bidding process, managing projects, and overseeing the office staff, DeSimone had 15 full time carpenters executing on projects. Al DeSimone (pictured in the center) oversaw the company’s field operations.
Dennis’ daughter Patience worked for the family business doing estimating for approximately seven years. He recalls her integral role in establishing the company’s foundation and culture. Patience would have likely still been with the family business but, sadly, she passed away in 2016.
Albert’s son Anthony, to whom Dennis transitioned the leadership role of the company in 2019, joined his father and uncle as a Project Manager in 2012.
With his passion for construction and advanced knowledge of technology, Anthony has been instrumental in developing and managing programs that provide clients, designers, and architect online tracking of construction projects in progress, as well as ensure subcontractors and material suppliers have the most recent project plans and specifications.
The success of these programs has been well received by clients, professionals, tradesmen and peers, earning Anthony much respect in the industry
It’s only fitting that DeSimone, the Masters of Every Detail in craftsmanship, made the investment in the Procore management tool to master the intricacies of the construction process.
While Procore is primarily used by much larger companies, DeSimone credits the use of this leading construction management technology for significantly streamlining its processes and doubling its revenues over the past couple of years.

DeSimone contributed $10,000 to GC Habitat for Humanity as a Corporate Sponsor of the next build in Clayton. In March 2023, the company employees expedited the construction process by framing the home in three days. Watch the video here.
At DeSimone, construction is our industry and only part of what we do. Our process starts with meeting with our clients, completing a design build process, and then managing the construction of their dream project. Informed by brand positioning research, we’ve refined our logo to better reflect our conception to completion services. While were moving away from the DeSimone name, we’ll forever stay the masters of every detail.
