The Antuzzi family’s long, successful construction history in Santa Clara Valley dates back as early as the turn of the century. The story began when an immigrant named Antonio Antuzzi came to America from Italy, settling in San Jose around 1910. Upon his arrival, Antonio found a passion for landscaping and gardening. After several years of honing his skills he eventually started his own business. Although never becoming a large contractor, Antonio made an honest living providing a good life for his family and epitomizing the “American Dream.” Along the way he developed quite a portfolio landscaping countless projects in the area including laying the first sod at San Jose’s historic Rose Garden.
The story continued in the late 1940’s while upon returning home after honorably serving his country in WWII, Antonio’s eldest son, Joseph A. Antuzzi Sr., founded Antuzzi Bros. along with his younger brother, Carl. Over the next several years the brothers transitioned their business from solely landscaping to concrete construction as well.
