The year 1926 marked the beginning of the Railroad Construction Company. Founded by Joseph Daloisio, the company has evolved and grown over eight decades. Joseph Daloisio was soon joined by his son Al Daloisio and so started a family tradition of excellence, customer satisfaction and an ever increasing range of services, which continues to this day.
What started as a small railroad track maintenance contractor grew exponentially between 1926 and 1967. In size, the range of services offered and geography.
1967 was the first of many landmark years for the Railroad Construction Company. We opened an office in Camden, NJ to better serve our customers in the Southern US, Eastern PA, Delaware and Maryland region.
In 1969, this office was incorporated as a separate company — the Railroad Construction Company of South Jersey, Inc (RCCSJ). This was the first corporation in the family business.
In 1973, James J. Daloisio joined the business after obtaining his undergraduate degree in civil engineering from Villanova University and his Juris Doctorate degree from Rutgers University School of Law. James eventually took over the operations for RCCSJ.
The next landmark for the company was in the year 1982 when Railroad Constructors, Inc. (RCI) was formed. This spread the company’s reach and range of services nationwide. In 1998, James A. Daloisio (son of James J. Daloisio) joined the company — beginning the fourth generation of Daloisios in the family business.
At the beginning of the new century — in 2001, RCCSJ and RCI moved from Camden, NJ to a newly built office building in Paulsboro, NJ. The new facility has over 14 acres of storage yard, a 60,000 square foot warehouse, a 13,000 square foot mechanic’s garage, 20,000 square feet of covered storage, a fully equipped training facility and new office building.
In 2002 Christofer Daloisio (son of James J. Daloisio) began working full time at the company. Today, James J. Daloisio is the President of RCCSJ, Christofer Daloisio is the President of RCI and James A. Daloisio is Vice President as well as Secretary of RCI.
The last and most recent landmark in the history of the company came in the year 2007, when James J. Daloisio, along with his two sons started 3D Railway Services, LLC which provides rail car shifting operations for industrial and commercial customers.
Today, all of the three companies RCCSJ, RCI and 3D Railway Services have been brought under the banner of The Railroad Group, LLC.
