About ABV Contractors

ABV Contractors was founded in 1972 by two bothers, Valerio and Bruno Frabotta. The “A” in ABV is for their father and mentor Alberto. The Frabotta family came to the United States from the small town of Rionero Sannitico of the Molise/Abruzzi region of Italy.

In the early 70’s small contracting firms were few in numbers. This allowed, along with unyielding dedication and hard work, these two young Italian immigrants to enter into the construction field. They started doing concrete work and yard drainage, with Valerio running the drainage side, and Bruno handling the concrete work. As time went by and work interest evolved, Valerio concentrated more on residential concrete work and basement waterproofing, while Bruno started to focus on commercial excavating, underground utilities and demolition.

In 1989, after earning an Engineering degree from the University of Akron and working several years co-operative education experience with other companies, the ‘baby’ of the Alberto and Silvia Frabotta family, Cesare, joined the company.

The addition of Cesare to the business allowed ABV to aggressively obtain new business. Valerio and Bruno would focus on their specialties, while Cesare would concentrate on estimating and engineering aspects.
