About Us

Russco is dedicated to performance in an industry that demands it at every step of the construction process. We wouldn't have it any other way.

Our History

Founded in 1952 by Russell Pichette as Russell & Co., the original focus was on building and maintaining drive-in theaters. The customers included most of the area’s major players, including EM Loews, General Cinemas, and Patriot Cinemas. Sixty years later, we still have ties with some of our early customers.

Using a conservative and common sense approach 1 store turned into 30-40 stores per year. With this new found success in retail construction, the company updated its name to RUSSCO Inc.

Russco Team 1950's

As outdoor theaters decline in number, we followed the industry to indoor cinema, becoming specialists in splitting older, large capacity theaters into two, three and four plex theaters, the precursor of today’s multiplexes. RUSSCO has a history of responding to changes in the construction environment, always keeping options open and reacting to new opportunities. While performing work for many of the mill buildings in Southern New England in the 1980’s, we were asked to build a retail store for Anderson Little, a clothing line manufacturer and retailer. Russel and his son, Russ, who had joined the company a couple of years earlier, gladly accepted the offer and broke into the retail construction business.

Russel’s younger son, Matt, joined RUSSCO in 1987. Matt went through a comprehensive training program, learning the business in the field and on the job. Soon Russ ran the office and Matt ran the jobs. This combination gave RUSSCO the ability to control schedules, costs, quality and delivery on jobs that cover a wide geographic area. It’s a partnership that continues today.

When F.W. Woolworth dissolved the Anderson-Little Chain in 1992, it was again time for RUSSCO to again change its focus. While devising a new marketing strategy to target new retail clients, RUSSCO returned to its roots of doing theater maintenance work and building office space and retail projects for local developers.

RUSSCO’s excellent reputation quickly brought new opportunities. In 1994 Payless ShoeSource became a client. In 1995 Toys “R” Us and foot locker joined the liss of retail clients. Growth continued with Taco Bell, Radio Shack, Olympia Sport, J Crew and Wilson’s Leather putting their confidence in RUSSCO.

Since 1998, we have averaged over 150 retail store projects per year throughout the country.

Why Russco

With over 60 years of solid performance behind us, RUSSCO is positioned to achieve greater success in the future. The stringent requirements for increased quality of construction, on time delivery and unequalled customer service have been met and actually exceeded.

RUSSCO is dedicated to performance in an industry that demands it at every step of the construction process. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

RUSSCO does not try to be all things to all people. We do not build a store one day, a school the next, and a home on the third. Retailing is our specialty; it has been for 25 years.

We understand the unique requirements of retail. Time is money. Delayed projects eat into sales and profits. We understand that a grand opening cannot be postponed at the last minute because construction is behind schedule. We will have your store ready for business as promised.

A visually appealing store means a better platform to display products which translates into improved sales in a very competitive market environment.

We believe in attention to detail every step of the way. Our finish carpenters and painters are trained to provide the very best craftsmanship for your store. We take great pride in our work so can take pride in your store.

As a family business, we are always personally involved in the total construction process. Our hands-on approach leaves nothing to chance keeping a close watch over every project to ensure complete customer satisfaction.

The commitment extends to our sub-contractors. They understand that we expect the very best, and they deliver it. We treat them with courtesy and respect, and they respond accordingly. It is a winning situation for our us, our subcontractors, and especially our customers.

Any questions or concerns are answered promptly and professionally. Avoiding an issue is never an issue where we are concerned.

RUSSCO has nationwide presence and reputation. We have completed projects in more than 35 states, from Maine to Hawaii. Seventy percent of our work is performed outside of New England.

We are fully aware of the various construction requirements from state to state. You can count on RUSSCO to meet state and local standards, avoiding delays and added cost.

RUSSCO Inc. is always looking for good people to join our team. We believe in hiring only the BEST. Our experienced staff includes executive management, estimators, project managers, licensed supervisors, and regional managers.
