Mid 1980’s, Steve Selvaggio (right) receives his company’s first new heavy-duty vehicle — a Mack truck manufactured in the Lehigh Valley, Pa.

Built on Trust

The Selvaggio Companies grew from the enterprise and energy of Stephen F. Selvaggio, proud son of a Bethlehem Steel worker, who forged his own future as a Master Plumber by founding the firm’s core business—Selvaggio Plumbing & Heating—in 1983.

Through the decades, the Selvaggio Plumbing & Heating name earned the trust of the leading names in commercial, industrial, institutional and municipal construction.  As his business and family grew, Mr. Selvaggio focused the scope of his operations exclusively on commercial plumbing services for larger developers.

The company also expanded into multi-unit residential and retail development projects throughout the fast-growing Lehigh Valley community. Wholly-owned interests in this sector spawned another Selvaggio affiliate in property development and management—T & S Development.

TURNING UP THE VOLUME. Another truckload of direct-from-the-factory PVC pipe stock arrives at the Selvaggio equipment/materials storage center for distribution to our worksites throughout eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Volume buys like this and our own warehousing/storage facilities enable Selvaggio to provide reliable workflow and value.

Growth through Service

Growth in the volume of heavy construction equipment, manpower expertise and operating efficiency in pre-construction enterprises led to the addition of two more new affiliates specializing in excavation, site prep and bulk aggregate hauling/worksite delivery services. Selvaggio Excavating and Selvaggio Hauling affiliates.
