The Del Zotto Family Precast Concrete Forms Legacy
Born in 1901, William Mario Del Zotto was an immigrant from Italy to the U.S. during the beginning of the European Arena of World War II. He worked as a brick layer in the coke ovens of US Steel in Duluth, MN. William Mario helped his son William John Del Zotto, born in 1942, get started in the pre-cast concrete business, and continued to give him advice well into his retirement up to his death in 1984. Del Zotto Manufacturing was started by that only son, William John Del Zotto.
Bill started out making steps and step forms, then septic tanks and septic tank forms. From those early forms, Bill built smarter forms by making them safe and easy to strip, pour and maintain. He invented and patented hundreds of pre-cast forms and equipment. Bill now has 10 children who continue the family legacy.
Son, William Mark Del Zotto, born in 1963, owns Del Zotto Products of MN and TX. Billy Jr., has four children. Billy Jr. has accomplished perfecting what was by inventing more and better forms such as the wet-cast and dry-cast concrete mixing systems. He is currently building a second Texas plant and in early 2000 built a state of the art facility in Northern Minnesota.
Sons Philip, born in 1989, and Mario Del Zotto, born in 1994, are taking over the Florida, Freeport, and Grand Bahama plants. Both have been responsible for designing and perfecting the engineering and design of the RCP/Pipe machinery, forms and equipment.
Over the years, Del Zotto has always been renown within the concrete industry as the source for quality products. Our aim is to provide a one-stop concrete industry superstore.
