GATES Partners with Seminole Tribe of Florida

GATES is partnering with the Seminole Tribe of Florida to form a new company to focus on minority construction contracts in Southwest Florida.  The new joint venture company, to be known as Seminole/GATES Development and Construction, will focus on securing minority construction contracts as part of large-scale developments in Southwest Florida.

“It will be an honor for the Seminole Tribe to participate with GATES Construction in the building of important new development projects in Southwest Florida,” said Tony Sanchez Jr., President of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc.  “Through this new joint venture, we expect to significantly expand our construction business.”

Todd Gates, Chairman of GATES Construction, said, “Our joint venture partnership with the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc., will generate jobs and cause a significant economic impact on the region, especially because both organizations are based in Florida and will reinvest their earnings here.  Plus, we plan to involve many of the area’s minority subcontractors in our projects.” 

GATES, with offices in Florida and the Republic of Panama, is a fully integrated construction, development and real estate company.  For more information on GATES, please call (239) 593-3777.
