Romano Concrete Construction,
a family owned and operated company, was started by Torcato Romano and his father Antonio. Making his way to the United States from Portugal, Torcato Romano leveraged his dedication and passion for construction to start his own construction business.

 

 

 

 


With a belief in delivering quality results for his customers in a timely and cost effective manner, Torcato Romano hired his first three employees in 1972. From these humble beginnings and a reputation as a hard working and honest businessman, Torcato steadily grew Romano Concrete Construction over three decades.

The values which have been the basis for Romano Concrete Construction since its inception have been instilled in Antonio since he was a small boy working with his dad, Torcato, out in the field. Today, Romano Concrete Construction is an award winning second generation minority owned small business with a 60 man crew run by Torcato’s son, Antonio Romano.
