The Associated General Contractors of New Jersey (AGCNJ) plans to merge soon with its sister group, the Building Contractors Association of New Jersey (BCANJ), says Thomas J. DiGangi Jr., AGCNJ executive director. Both groups, part of the AGC of America, are based in Edison.

AGCNJ focuses on the marine, roads and bridges, utility and other heavy industry sectors. BCANJ serves the non-residential and residential building side and says it is the largest general building contractor and construction management organization in New Jersey.

Jack Kocsis Jr., CEO of both groups, will take the helm of the merged group, which will be called the Associated Construction Contractors of New Jersey, DiGangi says.

More details on the merger will be made available soon, he adds.
