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. The Bencardino crew was hired to revitalize a building within the Philadelphia Navy Yard’s 1,200-acre limits. Company owner Louis A. Bencardino is the project manager and Bencardino Excavating’s Greg Davis is serving as project foremen.
“Philadelphia is our hometown, so when we have the opportunity to work on projects in the city that help to bring jobs and tourism to the area, we take great pride in that,” said Lou Bencardino, owner of Bencardino Excavating. “After making investments in the company earlier this year, we are off to a productive start and ready to provide more services to our clients in South Philadelphia and other neighboring communities.”
In 2012, Bencardino Excavating updated its capabilities and equipment to better serve its clients in the community. 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. The Bencardino Excavating Safety Committee has also planned several workshops to train employees on safe practices on job sites and the proper protocol for machine and new equipment operation.
