Our history: The
year was 1903 and the new twentieth-century was well under way.
History will long remember the period as an age of urban development
and a boom in building innovations... The Montalbine family, five
brothers from Brooklyn, NY, immigrants with the desire for opportunity,
established the Roman Stone Construction Company. They took up the
challenge of competing in a craft that had become a major industry
and became specialists in the field of construction and foundations. To learn more about our early history and see some early pictures, visit http://montalbine.com/romanstone.html
the depression of the 1930s and two world wars ultimately reshaped
the business and by the 1950s the company was taking a new direction.
New York City's large power utility, with their ever increasing
demands for new products, reached out to these craftsmen with a
new application for an old construction company. Concrete conduit
became the new foundation for productivity in the company. Soon
after it became apparent that the field of electrical construction
was ideal for new development.
Roman Stone calls Bay Shore, L.I. its home, at what has become a
strategic location for serving the metropolitan area along with
Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Its 33,000 square foot
manufacturing facility nestled on 9 acres is dedicated to providing
a full line of pre-cast products for the electrical and mechanical
construction industry and maintaining a standard of excellence that
has become a symbol of quality to utility and transportation agencies
alike. We are proud of the approval that we have received from New
York State, Nassau
County, Suffolk County,
Town of Hempstead, The MTA,
LIPA and Con
recent years, to keep up with customer and market demands, we have
taken on a complete line of cast iron (castings, frames, covers
and grates) to complement our existing line of pre-cast concrete.
Hence, we are proud to welcome the U.S. Foundry family of products to ours and add the
distinction of being their NY Distributor to our list of accolades.
