It all began when David and Julie Bianchi incorporated D.L. Bianchi’s Construction Co. in Buffalo, New York in 1971. They focused their operation on general masonry and brick construction, carrying on the family tradition that began with Angelo Bianchi around 1911. After operating as one of the largest non-unionized masonry construction companies in Buffalo, David and Julie decided to move the company to North Carolina in 1996 where it still operates today.
It wasn’t until 2001 that the Bianchi Family, now with help from their son Mark, decided to open up a masonry retail store named D.L. Bianchi’s Brickyard Supply in Southport, North Carolina. The family’s experience and expertise along with the long-standing staff gives them the ability to supply all of their customers’ products or material needs.
With the help and support of the staff, the business has proudly become one of the most respected and notable businesses in the area. A tremendous amount of pride is taken in offering the highest quality products and services. The Bianchi Family and staff strive to build continuing relationships with all of our clients.
David has been in the bricklaying and masonry business his whole life. He began D.L. Bianchi Construction Co. with his wife in 1971 and carried on the Bianchi masonry family tradition. Moving his family from Buffalo, NY to Wilmington, NC in 1996, they realized their dream of opening up the Brickyard. David continues to come up with new and innovative ideas to progress the company in a changing environment. He also loves spending time with his growing family. He is an avid sportsman spending his time fishing and hunting. He is also an okay golfer. Come by and say hi to David who has been in the masonry business for over 4 decades and seen it all!
