What began as a project to build a quality home for his own family, eventually turned into a full-time career for Dan Marchetta Sr...
In 1956, Marchetta decided to design, construct and build a home to house his wife and two children in the West Akron area. Several years later, after outgrowing the confines of this first home and adding two more children to the family, Marchetta and his wife decided it was time to begin building their second home. As friends and family saw and admired the quality of Marchetta's work on both his first and second homes, opportunities came along to build other homes in the Akron area and Dan Marchetta Construction Company was born.
Throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s, the number of homes Marchetta built continued to increase and the company grew into the construction of large, custom built homes for a growing number of clients.
In 1973, Marchetta acquired land that was to eventually become his first development venture, Robinwood Hills Estates in Bath Township. In this development the company put in streets, sewers and built all the homes. Since then, Dan Marchetta Companies have developed 4 additional communities in the Bath Township area - The Sanctuary of Bath Estates, North Fork Estates, Arbour Green and Ashbury Estates.
The expansion to commercial building construction did not come until 1975. Almost 20 years after Marchetta constructed his first home, his company built its first commercial building in the Valley area of west Akron. Since then, Dan Marchetta Companies have constructed numerous apartment complexes, shopping centers, and office buildings throughout Ohio.
As business grew, Dan Marchetta Realty, Inc., was added to the Company's portfolio in the 1980's to focus on the real estate division of the company. This division was incorporated to sell residential real estate, lease commercial buildings, and develop both residential and commercial developments for Dan Marchetta Construction Co, Inc.
Today, Dan Marchetta Companies is involved in all aspects of Real Estate, Commercial and Development projects. The Company currently owns and manages over 20 commercial buildings, is developing 3 new private residential neighborhoods, and is fully staffed, experienced, and ready to continue to grow in size.
The reputation for quality that has grown with the Company over the years has helped Dan Marchetta Companies weather the ups and downs of the building trades industry. By hiring the finest craftspeople in the area and putting them exclusively on the company’s payroll, Dan Marchetta Companies can and will continue to maintain its top quality name in Ohio.
