About Duchini

Since 1932, Duchini has been serving the construction industry in the tri-state area. The company began when Avellino Duchini, a skilled mason, came to the U.S. from Italy in the 1920s. He founded the company 12 years later working on small masonry projects. Since then Duchini has progressively grown from its manufacturing roots to now include a showroom selling fireplaces, brick, block, stone and much more. The award-winning A. Duchini, Inc - Ace Hardware Home Center is another facet of the Duchini organization featuring the entire line of Duchini products and other construction supplies.

This family owned and operated business has long stood for quality and commitment with several generations of employees maintaining the company’s tradition of excellent service. The loyalty of the employees and the long-standing relationship with generations of customers are just a few of the reasons Duchini has become the largest distributor of masonry products in the area.

The company has come a long way – from the single hand-molded blocks Avellino and his wife, Ida, made in their garage to the state-of-the-art factory capable of producing tens of thousands of blocks per day. The products Duchini now offers their customers has grown to include:
