Company History

Bertucci Contracting Corporation traces its history to the turn of the last century when the present owner’s great-great grandfather began hauling sand from pits along the Mississippi River in New Orleans. By the end of WW II, the business had evolved from mule drawn wagons to diesel-powered equipment. In the late 1950’s, Bertucci began concentrating on building rock structures along the inland waterways and the gulf coast. Five generations have passed and the business ideals and practices along with the expertise and skills that were developed through the years have positioned Bertucci as the local market leader in coastal restoration work across the Gulf Coast.
