A Bit Of History
Cruz Construction is a family owned business that was started in 1948 by Joe’s grandfather, Belmiro Cruz. He was an honest, hard working businessman who built a reputation for service and quality work. Joe was taught by his grandfather and had this work ethic instilled in him at a very young age. He continued on to receive a Bachelors Degree in Building Construction from Wentworth Institute of Technology and expanded his construction skills while serving as a SeaBee in the U.S. Navy. Today, he continues to carry on the CRUZ tradition of quality, service, reputation, and experience!
