In 1946, Peter Galetto Sr. formed a modest construction company with his friend, James Stanker, building fireplaces and chicken coops in rural Vineland when the town served as the nation’s poultry capital.

As South Jersey changed throughout the years, so did Stanker & Galetto. The firm’s reputation for quality and service grew, and so did the size of the projects. Gradually Stanker & Galetto shifted its focus to building homes, warehouses and eventually the large commercial, industrial and municipal structures that are the company’s specialty today.

Peter Galetto Sr. was the man behind the early success of the company. A down-to-earth businessman whose family emigrated here from Italy to become farmers, Mr. Galetto’s unique combination of progressive thinking, common sense and hard work has defined the path for Stanker & Galetto’s current success.
