Four generations of the Manafort family have spent more than 90 years building Manafort Brothers Inc. into one of New England’s leading construction companies.
James Manafort immigrated from Italy to Connecticut and in 1919 founded the New Britain House Wrecking Company. He bought old homes, tore them apart board by board, then salvaged and recycled the lumber. His work ethic and dedication set the standard that remains today. James Manafort’s four sons – Anthony, Frank, John, and Paul – grew up working in the business.
After service in the war, the four sons returned to the business in 1946. They expanded operations and renamed the company Manafort Brothers, Inc. The company quickly became one of the leading demolition firms in Connecticut. As Manafort Brothers continued to develop and grow, the third generation of Manaforts lived and learned the construction business.
By the 1960’s, that third generation – James, Frank and Jon – had the skills to take on leadership positions. They further expanded the company’s capabilities into excavation, site work, concrete construction, and waste removal. As business increased, so did the respect and trust Manafort earned from their clients.
Now a fourth generation – Jim Jr., David, Lauren, Justin, and Bill are heavily involved in the company. They, like the previous generations, have taken Manafort Brothers to new levels of success by adding new areas of specialization and expanding the company’s depth in its more established specialties. In fact, Manafort has consistently grown in expertise, size, capacity, equipment, facilities, and clients. We’ve become the most comprehensive, integrated contracting company in New England.
Since 1919 one thing has remained the same — our dedication to innovation, excellence, quality, safety, and customer service.
