Alejandro (Al) has been in construction for 9 years, working in a variety of different trades and assisting in whatever capacities are needed to complete a job. In Ecuador, Al began his work in construction, of his time working between Ecuador and the United States he says, “[In Ecuador] I used to work more with metal and welding, but it’s all the same, just different materials.” As one of our Bregenzer Brother’s Foremen, Al oversees the completion of our historical restoration and roofing projects, bringing his adaptable approach to the unique demands of each project. Currently, Al is restoring historical architectural façade details and metal adornments in the Bregenzer Brothers Shop, based out of Ewing, New Jersey.

Al’s journey to working for the Bregenzer Brothers and fearless determination to pursue better work opportunities in a different country and culture, inspire us and remind us of the importance in honoring Hispanic Heritage Month.
