Make First General Your First Call In New York City


New York, New York– February 1, 2014:  We are excited to announce the grand opening of our New York City office. This office will add capacity to an underserved marketplace, working closely with First General Bergen County. Paul and Lourdes Benson are our new owners, and have over 20 years of experience in the construction, real estate, and restoration industry. Recently, having moved office locations, they now have the capacity to serve New York City. Just recently Paul, Lourdes, and Joe Reyes (owner of First General Bergen County) coordinated services to quickly restore a 21-floor water loss in a high-end New York City building.

Please join us in welcoming Paul and Lourdes to the First General team, and please do not hesitate to contact them for any of your restoration needs. First General is now open in New York City and help has arrived.


“I am thrilled about the reopening of our New York City office. First General provides superior customer service and results. Being able to expand these services to New York City is truly an inspiring moment in our history. I know that Paul and Lourdes will make the network proud.”
– Michael Flatt, CEO First General North America

“With the newly opened office, we are looking to expand our service. We are actively hiring new staff, and as a minority female owned and managed business, we are highly focused on being known as an equal opportunity employer.”
– Paul & Lourdes Benson, Owners – First General New Jersey
