In 1926 Joseph Daloisio, Sr. founded Railroad Construction Company (RCC) and started performing railroad track repairs after leaving his job at the Erie Railroad Company. Joseph built the basis of Railroad Construction Company providing service as a quality contractor dedicated to on time completion of projects.
From 1926 to 1942, RCC operated out of a small office next to the Daloisio home on Summer Street in Paterson, NJ. Al Daloisio, Sr. joined his father in 1927 and took over the reigns of RCC in 1941 with the help of his brother Tony, and sister Mary Daloisio Falcione and her husband Tony Falcione. In 1942, RCC moved to our current Grove street location. Joseph Daloisio, Jr. officially joined the company in 1956 after college and service in the Army Corps of Engineers.
During the first 15 years of operation, the company would not bid any project with a value over $10,000. With a 1941 project for the Todd Shipyards in Brooklyn, New York for $25,000, Al Daloisio, Sr. began to lead RCC into the new territory with larger contracts.
As the contracts began to grow, so did the company. Many family members started working full and part-time contributing to the success of the organization. By 1970, RCC began performing projects with a value of up to $500,000. In 1979, Railroad Construction Company was incorporated and in 1983, after working with his father for many years, Al Daloisio, Jr., took over as President of RCC. As the company grew, RCC branched out into excavation, drainage, and site work by adding co-workers with expertise in those areas, taking on more diverse projects and entering into the heavy-highway sector as a general contractor.
Originally established to provide New Jersey and New York industries with railroad track construction and maintenance service, today Railroad Construction Company has the experience and capability to maintain and construct roadways, bridges, buildings, utility systems and rail facilities, as well as provide environmental remediation and site work.
Railroad Construction Company has completed an impressive list of projects performed in more than 15 states for a myriad of public and private owners. RCC runs anywhere from 15 to 50 projects at a time, ranging in value from a few thousand dollars to almost 100 million. Partnerships with local unions are another major reason for the company's success.
At Railroad Construction Company we have been fortunate to find a group of people that thrive as a team to fulfill our mission. Today, the company remains dedicated to providing the same service and quality on which it was founded.
