Who we Are
A. Colarusso and Son, established in 1912, is a family owned and operated heavy highway contractor—creating infrastructure, roads, bridges and ports, and otherwise non-building construction. Based in Hudson, New York, the company is also a producer of crushed stone, sand and gravel, and hot mixed asphalt.
I’m often asked to talk about our company and who we are, what we do and why. Well, it all goes back to my great grandfather, Antonio Colarusso, who founded the company in 1912. A 1935 newspaper article profiling A. Colarusso & Son sums it up best:
“Then as now, a contractor and road builder, we praise founder Antonio Colarusso for building roads that stand up under any test devised, for a reputation of finishing anything he tackled, and for building a successful firm on hard work, honest work and an honest pride in accomplishment.”
I feel that same sense of pride today for the work we do, and more importantly for the people who do that work. They are carrying on the same great traditions of excellence started by my great grandfather more than 100 years ago.
