COMPANY HISTORY
>

The DeFoe organization began operation in 1946 as a small specialty contractor with a vision of excellence and an eye on the future. With the explosive growth of highway construction and the birth of the Interstate System in the 1950’s DeFoe Corp. emerged as a heavy civil contractor, specializing in highways, bridges, utilities, deep foundations, transportation and transit projects that helped pioneer the art and application of architectural concrete.

Today, more than 60 years later, the DeFoe Organization team tackles the most challenging construction, reconstruction and rehabilitation projects throughout the New York Tristate area. Our reputation for creative problem solving and track record for getting the job done – within budget and on or ahead of schedule, the respect we’ve garnered from our suppliers, owners and other contractors, makes DeFoe Corp. among the most respected names in New York heavy construction.
