In 1952, Anthony “Red” DaCato and his wife, Ida, moved to Orlando and were determined to start a business. Shortly afterwards, A-1 Block Corporation was founded. Red and two employees would split their weekdays between manufacturing and delivering concrete block, while Ida would spend her days bookkeeping from her car. Their operation was rife with challenges as they started without an office and without air-conditioning in the Florida heat. Yet, this successful team worked together for over fifty-two years, and through hard work and perseverance, they managed to grow and expand the business – adding five operating facilities, advanced equipment, and additional staff.
Today, the company is managed by the third generation of the family with eight locations throughout Central Florida, including Sanford, Orlando, and Tampa. We value family, hard work, and perseverance; It’s who we are. Click the video below for a glimpse into our past and legacy:
