Corrado Brothers was founded in 1945 by Joe Corrado, his brother, Lawrence, and his brother-in-law, Alessandro Benzi. Started as a landscaping business, the company was unionized in 1951 as its primary focus had turned to site construction. From then on, its reputation grew based on its integrity and quality of work. In 1984, the company was renamed Corrado American after merging with one of its competitors, American Rentals, Inc. By that time, both Lawrence and Alessandro were retired and both of Joe’s sons, Joe and Frank, had been with the company for fifteen years.
Since then, Corrado American (CA) has left an indelible mark throughout Delaware. CA’s projects include the Christiana Mall, Port of Wilmington, Brandywine Town Center, Delaware City Refinery, Christiana Hospital, Astra Zeneca and Dover Downs, among many others. Now helmed by Tony Brown and chaired by Frank Corrado, Corrado American continues to add to its scope of work by including rail prep and maintenance and industrial maintenance support. With its history of quality workmanship and depth of experience, Corrado American is poised to continue its success for another seven decades.
