Harrison & Burrowes Bridge Constructors Inc. prides itself on being reliable. “We’ve developed a reputation over the past 38 years as being the guys who, when we are the apparent low bidder, will get it done right, on schedule and under budget without any headaches or hassles along the way,” Vice President Chris DiStefano says.

The Glenmont, N.Y.-based company has earned its reputation through the efforts of its executives and other staff. Harrison & Burrowes’ five executive managers are DiStefano and his father, Jeff DiStefano, who co-founded the company in 1980 and serves as CEO; President Mark Klingbeil; Vice President Steve Avveduti, and Secretary/Treasurer Ann Marie Olsen-Geitner. Combined, the five have nearly 170 years of combined experience. Several of the company’s superintendents have worked for it for 30 years or more.

“Once people come here, they don’t go anywhere else,” Chris DiStefano says. “Our people take pride in what they do and are proud to work here. Even when they’re not at work, you’ll see them wearing a Harrison & Burrowes-branded hoodie or hat.

“We treat everyone here equally and with respect,” DiStefano adds. “We expect a lot of our employees, and we know the construction season in New York is long, but we are a pretty easy company to work for.”
