Zappala Block Company

Building Materials Since 1922

Company and services description

When we tell the story on how our grandfather started manufacturing concrete building blocks by hand in 1922 people are truly amazed. Our Grandfather, Salvtore Zappala at the age of 29, left his home town of Roccella, Italy to come to the land of opportunity. Leaving his wife and two children, he arrived in NYC on February 17th 1921 abord the Gugliemo Pierce Ship.

Being a man of dedication, hard work ethics and family values, his first goal was to build a home so he could have his wife and children reunited with him. Salvatore worked during the day in a shoe repair shop and a boilermaker apprentice in the West Albay Train Co. at night. His hard work paid off, soon he was able to purchase a parcel of land in Clinton Heights, NY where he started to build his family home. He purchased a hand operated block machine to manufacture building blocks for his home. During the construction, a local farmer saw the concrete blocks being used and asked him if he would sell some concrete block for his barn.

This was how our grandfather, Salvatore Zappala began manufacturing and selling concrete building blocks.

TODAY...Under the direction of the third generation, Zappala Block Co. is a state of the art manufacturing facility.
