Frank Corrado, CEO

A union shop founded in 1945, Corrado American created a new service niche in the early 2000s that includes extensive industrial maintenance support and railway preparation and maintenance services. Providing these new services have allowed us to now count on-site electrical and mechanical contractors as clients as well as GCs, CMs and owners within the refineries and energy plants we work. With over 75 years of field experience, Corrado American has the knowledge and commitment necessary to avoid obstacles and pitfalls before they have a major impact on project schedules and budgets.

Since our founding in 1945, Corrado American has been a client-focused organization committed to the highest standards in everything we do. Our founder, Joseph S. Corrado, coined the phrase “The Corrado Way” which became an aspirational credo that guided our efforts then and still does today. This credo represents the notion that hard work and diligence bring their own reward and this inner drive for excellence underpins our long record of accomplishment.
