Overheard

A job we did with Merck & Co. required very high safety standards, including shoring and lifting requirements. Bencardino fulfilled every one of them. I also like the fact that the owner, Lou Bencardino, gets personally involved in every job he does.

Lou Bencardino and Bencardino Excavating, a full-service excavating company based in Bucks County, Pa., have begun an underground electrical excavation project for Gordon Group Electric of Feasterville, Pa.

Some of the new equipment added to the company’s arsenal included a BoMag BW 190 Asphalt Roller, a walk-behind Bulldog Trench Roller and three new CASE Backhoes. With this new equipment, the crew is able to handle a variety of milling and excavation needs for projects and clients.
