We are the American dream. We are hard work, blood, sweat and tears. The feeling of deep satisfaction you get from a hard day's work and a job well done. That's the feeling we get seeing homes/communities coming up out of the ground. The satisfaction of watching something that existed only in the imagination and seeing it become a reality. The knowing that you get from being part of something bigger than yourself. The struggle against a timeline, against a deadline, material logistics, labor shortages, weather fighting to stop or hold up forward momentum. Doing the hard things and prevailing. Hundreds of people coming together across multiple companies to see a common vision being built. The magic of teamwork made possible through the hard work and perseverance of the individual.
Stella construction is named after our 95 year old grandmother.
In 1945 Stella Pancio fled her Homeland of Ukraine to escape Nazi oppression. She stayed in Holland for a brief period before immigrating to Staten Island. In New York City she met Michael Pancio, her husband of 45 years. Shortly after they were married, they moved to a small town in Western New York. There they started a small grocery store and it maintained up until Michael Pancio’s retirement. They achieved their American dream through hard work, discipline and a commitment to doing the right thing.
Our company was built on the Christian values that were passed down from our grandparents. Our mission is excellence in our work and to differentiate ourselves by doing what we say.
