In the Beginning...

Angelo Rossi

Rossi Contractors began in 1948, with one truck and the dreams of Angelo Rossi and his brother Joseph. Angelo labored during the day, hauled dirt at night and worked tirelessly to expand his company.

Angelo once told his wife, Gloria, that he would consider himself successful with a company comprising ten trucks. Angelo's business eventually grew beyond his hopes and expectations. Angelo's diligence and adherence to a strict standard of excellence enabled Rossi Contractors to become one of the largest concrete, excavating and underground utility contractors in the Midwest.

Rossi Contractors played an integral role in building the post war infrastructure of the Chicago metropolitan area by installing underground utilities and constructing roadways. The integrity of its founder assured everyone involved in the burgeoning list of Rossi projects, that the work would be performed as promised. As his business flourished, Angelo Rossi maintained a commitment to quality and safety that solidified his company's reputation as one of the region's exceptional construction firms.
