Victor Zucchi, our founder, came to this country from Italy as a young and talented artisan. Not long after his arrival to the United States he began working for local companies that specialized in religious art works, murals and mosaics. Realizing his passion and creative talent in the field of religious works he decided to venture out and start his own successful company in the early 1930’s. Through his efforts and relentless work ethic he built the business while serving the Catholic Community.
Edward Zucchi, Sr., the companies second generation, entered the family business full-time after fulfilling his military obligation as a member of the United States Navy in World War ll. With his vision and desire to continue to make the company grow he explored various other religious entities and grew Victor Zucchi & Son into a firm that became well-known for church interior renovations, liturgical works and church interior painting and decorating.
Edward Zucchi, Jr., the company's third generation, entered the family business full-time upon graduating from college. While working for Victor Zucchi & Son he realized the need to not only continue with the present course of the business but to also further expand the horizons of the company. It was at that time that the company began to expand into the construction of new church buildings, schools and other types of religious facilities.
Christopher Zucchi, the company's fourth generation, graduated from DeSales University and began working for the company full-time. He has been learning all aspects of the industry, starting out as a carpenter's apprentice to now Site Manager.

Innovative Stone Solutions Aid Design of New Church Sanctuary
August 24, 2020
Victor Zucchi & Son was hired as General Contractor to oversee the entire project from start to finish. It was our company as well as our stone setter, Aisoni & CO, who figured out the methodology to get these large thousand pound stones from the parking lot, down the center aisle, and hoisted into place. Without our expertise and generations of experience, this difficult and unique project would never have come to fruition. We executed with such a high level of quality that any stone piece that came fabricated incorrectly, was sent right back to the manufacturer to be re-fabricated. All pieces needed to be made with absolute precision as we had zero room for error. In the end, when all the correct pieces arrived, our attention to even the smallest of details leads to another beautiful, award winning project.
2019 Association of Licensed Architects Silver Award Winner
In 2018, Saint Catherine of Siena parish sought to add a sense of magnificence to their country Gothic church. The architect proposed a new limestone retablo – the largest one in the United States in over 60 years - together with a marble altar, tabernacle, and ambo.
The design of this project is stunning, but the real feat was getting these thousand pound stones into place without the use of a crane. That is something only a well qualified contractor can complete.
