Old Forge Builders

Old Forge Builders

Vision and work ethic took Dave Pape from his early days as a carpenter to the successful developer he is today. After years as a painter, laborer and carpenter, he purchased his first piece of land on Old Forge Road in Monroe at age 24, and from there, Old Forge Builders was born. In the early stages, Dave primarily focused on land development and residential building. In the 1990s, Dave began to take on commercial projects by request. He even built the building in Jamesburg where his first office was. Then, when the recession hit and residential real estate was no longer thriving, he pursued bidding on commercial jobs and diversifying his business. During this time, his son, Nick, would also work as a laborer for his company throughout high school and college. After he graduated, Nick worked for a commercial development company, but always knew he would come back to Old Forge to work for his dad. “Working together works out really well because we’re like yin and yang,” says Dave. “Nick is a better businessman, whereas I’m really the builder.” 

About Amboy:

“Amboy always make us feel like we’re the only customers they have. They’ve really helped me a lot. They took a chance on me. It wasn’t about just the project and the numbers to them; it was also the person. I’ve met a lot of good people at Amboy since I started banking with them 30 years ago.”

Comprehensive Orthopedic Physical Therapy

After George Gendy graduated Florida A&U, he worked as a physical therapist at Kessler Rehabilitation for two and a half years. In his last year, George worked for Argosy Health, a branch of Kessler that focuses solely on workplace injuries. Working for Argosy Health gave George the autonomy to set up his own accounts and plan his schedule accordingly. He thrived with the independence and was quickly promoted to a director role, but decided it was time to start his own practice. The doors to Comprehensive Orthopedic Physical Therapy opened in November 2004, and his wife, Cristein, joined him as the General Manager in 2007. George worked as the sole physical therapist in the practice until 2013 when he felt it was time to move to a bigger office to make room for more employees and patients. Today, there are three physical therapists in the practice. “Our physical therapists really take the time to explain what’s wrong and why,” says Cristein. “We strive to make sure our patients understand the steps they can take, both in and out of the office, to fix the problem at hand.”

They are also working on moving forward with an impressive state-of-the-art gym inside the practice where patients can continue their treatment plan. Currently, there are yoga classes three times per week and a part-time trainer who brings in clients. Future endeavors also include a nutritionist and acupuncturist. George said, “I really want to bridge the gap between injury and wellness.”

About Amboy:

“When I was looking for a loan to move offices, I went to the two banks I already had relationships with, and the rates they gave me were terrible. Mary Pepe, the New Brunswick branch manager at the time, was my patient and suggested I try Amboy. I truly felt that they were investing in me, and they gave me a great rate. I rave to everyone about Amboy. They didn’t know me, but they still took care of me as a customer. Now I have a great relationship with them. Everyone’s been really great.”

Homes & Land

Homes & Land of Middlesex County

Brian Prinsell, owner and publisher of Homes & Land of Middlesex, originally worked in the transportation business. After graduating from law school, he took a different track and took a job driving for a private charter bus company in New York. Soon after, Brian started his own private charter company, which he eventually sold to Coach USA, one of the largest transportation companies in North America. While taking some time off, Brian was looking for a second home by the beach when he came across a listing in the magazine, Homes and Land of Monmouth. Brian called the realtor ready to purchase. Since he really saw the value of the magazine and was looking for his next endeavor, Brian’s next call was to the magazine’s owner in Florida to franchise Homes & Land in Middlesex, Union and Mercer counties. The magazine sent three people from their home office to help Brian get the magazine up and running, and it launched in September 2006. It took six weeks to get his first advertiser, but that advertiser saw true value in the magazine as well, and still remains on the back cover of every issue. With the success of Homes & Land, Brian has now grown the business to about fifteen employees and also recently launched H&L Marketing Services. H&L is a full-service marketing company offering web design, graphic design, photography, event planning, and more.

About Amboy:

“I’m always happy with Amboy Bank. I was really looking for a community bank, and Jennifer and Mary are wonderful. Amboy supports local businesses too, and they always displays Homes and Land Magazine in the branch.”
