Our History2019-04-19T19:52:44+00:00

The Clemente family has been in the concrete business for the last four generations dating back to the 1930s. Bonded Concrete was formed and incorporated in 1964 by Salvatore, Anthony, and Gay.  Through a series of acquisitions and mergers over the years, Bonded Concrete continues as a family-owned and operated concrete company, promoting a family-oriented atmosphere for its customers and employees.

As family members retire, we’ve had new family members join Bonded Concrete throughout the years. Salvatore brought his three sons on board in the 1970s. Thomas Clemente joined his father in 1977 as an operations manager. Philip Clemente joined as a manager that same year. In 1979 Andrew Clemente joined the company as the In-house Engineer.

In the 1980s, Bonded Concrete expanded once again with the addition of a location in Berlin, NY, as well as the acquisition of the portable concrete batch plants for the hard to reach demanding projects.

Bonded Concrete experienced a time of growth and changes allowing for three more of Salvatore’s sons to join the company. In 1982 Jude Clemente joined as his new operations manager of Bonded Concrete sister company Troy Sand and Gravel Co Inc. In 1986 Carl Clemente joined in sales and outside management for Troy Sand and Gravel Co Inc. In 1989 Brendan Clemente joined in sales and quality control as well as portable plant management.

Bonded Concrete continued to grow and expand its operations in the 1990s with the start of its portable on-site concrete division adding a second portable plant to its existing portable plant operation. The portable concrete division supplied several large commercial and DOT projects throughout the northeast. Bonded Concrete also acquired 21 Century Concrete’s two locations in 1997 adding to the existing three stationary concrete operations.

The turn of the century for Bonded Concrete brought further growth with the acquisition of Connecticut Sand and Stone in North Canaan, CT in 2000. In 2002 Bonded expanded again with the development of a new location in Wilton, NY.  The company added to its portable concrete division with the acquisition of a 12 (cu yd) high-performance central mix concrete plant in 2004 for large volume concrete projects.

As demand for our products grew in Berkshire County, MA Century Acquisition met those demands with the addition of their second concrete plant in Pittsfield, MA. In 2015 Nick Clemente, Salvatore’s grandson joined Bonded Concrete to manage a newly acquired concrete operation located in Pleasant Valley.  In 2018 Century Acquisition, added its third location as it acquired the operation of Amenia Sand and Gravel’s concrete division in Amenia, NY.

The substantial expansions and growth over the years have positioned Bonded Concrete to hold up their mission of delivering the best quality concrete products and services. The family owned and operated approach allows them to do it in a friendly and personalized manner with a lasting legacy for years to come.

In the 1980s, Bonded Concrete expanded once again with the addition of the Berlin, NY batch plant and then acquired the first of its highly portable batch plants. This portable batch plant was used to supply three large bridge jobs that ran along the Delaware River.

Salvatore made changes and brought three more of his sons on board in the early to late 1980s.  In 1982 Jude Clemente joined as his new Operations Manager of the aggregates division. In 1986 Carl Clemente joined in sales and management of outside aggregate operations. In 1989 Brendan Clemente joined in sales and quality control as well as portable plant management. His grandson Nick Clemente has been on the management track for over a decade and is now Operations Manager of The Hudson Valley concrete plant locations.

Bonded Concrete continued to grow and expand its operations in the 1990’s with the start of it portable on-site concrete division. The portable division supplied over 400,000 (cu yd) of concrete to projects all over the northeast.

The turn of the century for Bonded Concrete showed continued growth with the acquisition of Connecticut Sand and Stone in North Canaan, CT in 2000 as well as the construction of a new operation in Pittsfield, MA in 2009. The company has continued to grow in its portable division as well with the addition of a portable 12 cu yd high performance central mix concrete plant.

Century Acquisitions, our Berkshire based concrete company, recently purchased Amenia Sand and Gravel Inc. which has closed its operations in spring 2018. At least eight new full-time jobs will be added in 2019. The Amenia NY location will allow Century Acquisitions to expand its service reach into Dutchess County, Litchfield CT and Northern Putnam CT. The revitalization of the Amenia plant location also helps Century Acquisitions be more centrally located to the client and partners service area.

The substantial expansions and growth over the years have positioned Bonded Concrete to hold up their mission of delivering the best quality concrete products and services. The family owned and operated approach allows them to do it in a friendly and personalized manner with a lasting legacy for years to come.
