Hingle Erickson Construction was founded by its two owners Larry Hingle and Jon Erickson in 2008.
Larry Hingle |
Larry Hingle has been a lifetime Central Florida resident. Born in Daytona Beach, he graduated from Stetson University with a degree in Business. Larry was drafted by the California Angels as the 7th draft pick in 1992 and also played with the Houston Astros. “The most important thing I learned while playing baseball was teamwork and planning. As in construction, you must have a solid plan and leadership to execute the plan.”
After retiring from baseball in 1997, Mr. Hingle became a sales rep for Florida Rock Industries, a concrete, block and steel provider. In 2001 he started Express Concrete, which grew to generate over a million dollars in sales in 2005. During this time, Larry obtained his general contractors license which enabled him to build multiple houses and townhomes.
Wanting to “build” his own contracting company, Larry teamed up with Jon Erickson to form Hingle Erickson Construction. “It’s a perfect partnership.” Jon shares the same philosophies; honesty, attention to detail, and total customer satisfaction with no exceptions….period! Please check with any of our past customers, we “build” relationships along with excellent work.
Jon Erickson |
Jon Erickson is a graduate of University of Central Florida. In his first career he was an animator in the video game industry, but he soon realized that his interest lay in building. Jon put on his tool belt, went to work for a general contractor, and has been a dedicated builder ever since. Jon has built several hundred homes from all facets: tradesman, superintendent, estimator, project manager, purchasing director, land development, and owner. In 2003, Jon managed and built the “New Southern Home”; which was featured on the cover of Florida Home Builder Magazine. Jon’s greatest legacy is not just the magnificent homes he’s built but the satisfied customers that now serve as his references.
Jon is a State Certified Building Contractor. His grandfather was the first licensed General Contractor in Pinellas County. He has construction in his blood, as well as an eye for design. When not working, Jon builds furniture, cabinets, and even forts for his two young boys. What makes Jon different from other contractors is his love of building. He enjoys crafting the delicate pieces that bring a project together.
Today, Jon Erickson and Larry Hingle are owners of a construction company that they are proud of. The focus of Hingle Erickson Construction is to build a product with creativity and attention to detail that results in total customer satisfaction.
