ABOUT HALMAR INTERNATIONAL
Halmar’s legacy began with a dream of something bigger. Michael Malagiero and Al DiLeo merged their two small landscaping companies into one, brought Howard Wein into the operation, and adopted the name Halmar in 1962. They expanded from landscaping and small pavement projects in the 60’s into small private and public sector projects in the 1970’s. Steady growth throughout the 80’s positioned Halmar to win extensive work on major transit hubs like JFK International Airport and on numerous NYC Transit and other MTA system projects throughout the 90’s.
In 2001, Granite Construction Company, a heavy civil construction firm out of Watsonville, CA, acquired Halmar Builders of New York, Inc. forming Granite Halmar Construction Company, Inc. By 2002, the estimating department was bidding over $2 billion in high-profile projects like the Times Square Station Complex Reconstruction and the Stillwell Avenue Terminal Reconstruction.
Within this same decade Halmar international was formed with many of the same principals, experience and expertise that fueled Halmar’s growth. Today Halmar International operates as a full-service construction company, providing wide range of construction services, conducting business as it always has . . . putting the clients’ needs first. Business as usual, the Halmar way.
