Nicholas Cappuccio, pictured on the right side of the adjoining photograph, originally founded the organization in 1954 (1922-1991). After considerable success in the residential and light commercial construction field, in 1973, Anthony Cappuccio, pictured on the left side of the adjoining photograph, joined the organization and the company expanded into the commercial and industrial construction (i.e., restaurants, office buildings, banks, chemical and manufacturing plants, and industrial building).
The projects were greatly expanded and grew into large commercial buildings, public projects and buildings, industrial, chemical, manufacturing, and industrial projects and buildings. In the early 1970s, before the GC, General Construction projects grew from the $50,000 range to $750,000 range. The projects were performed in various industries, for example, Banking and Financial, County and Municipal, Commercial and Retail, Medical and Office, Manufacturing, Warehouse/Distribution industrial facilities. The CAI Construction services expanded from (GC) General Contractor to (CM) Construction Management, offering Value-Added Engineering (VAE) Services, Design & Build Services, Plant Maintenance Services, Cost Plus a Fee, Unit Price, (T&M) Time and Material.
In 1978, our success continued with the expansion into the specialized market of exterior building cleaning and restoration. Under the Sermac and SMS trademarks, the company developed several system technologies in cleaning and building restoration. CAI (Contract Applicators, Inc.) was registered in 1992 in order to expand upon its success and services in building restoration, construction, and facility maintenance. At this time, CAI developed three divisions to more adequately service the expanding needs of building owners, facilities managers, and industrial plants.
