In 2010, Sordoni Construction Services, Inc., reached a significant milestone celebrating A Century of Service: Clients, Employees, Community.
Andrew J. Sordoni founded the company in 1910 with a team of borrowed horses, a second-hand harness, and two wagons. He hauled coal, removed ashes, and dug cellars, and with honest, industrious effort he built a reputation and a clientele. A hundred years later, Sordoni Construction Services, Inc., has grown into Northeast Pennsylvania’s largest construction manager and general contractor, building projects for the healthcare, education, corporate and industrial sectors.
Sordoni marked its 100th year with a series of events to celebrate the company’s rich history and to share the organization’s vision for the future with employees, clients and business partners. A commemorative logo graced Sordoni’s signature orange trucks and job site signs.
The highlight of the year-long celebration was a home built by Sordoni employees and volunteers for Wyoming Valley Habitat for Humanity. In addition to the Habitat House, Sordoni expanded its longstanding commitment to the community through a newly created Sordoni Volunteer Program. Sordoni’s community service effort has been recognized with multiple awards from the United Way of Luzerne County and the United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties.
