With over 25 years of experience in the business, DiPonio Contracting, Inc. has found their niche. DiPonio Contracting, Inc. specializes in local government, DOT, municipal, commercial and institutional projects. However, the companies bread and butter is earthwork, foundation, and underground systems.
A company once tested by the recession of 2008, now sees smooth sailing ahead for they live by the motto train and retain. President of DiPonio Contracting, Inc., Frank DiPonio is forever appreciative of his workforce for not only building incredible structures but for simultaneously building and maintaining the company name.

From the moment you are welcomed in the front door at DiPonio Contracting, Inc. it is apparent that these people are truly happy to be where they are. Coming to work is not like work at all, in fact it’s like coming home.
“I couldn’t thank Frank enough for assisting me in my professional growth and helping me get where I am today,” Chris Maltese, Project Manager, DiPonio Contracting, Inc. states.
It was during the annual MITA Conference held in Mount Pleasant, MI that Frank DiPonio and ABC SEMI’s President, Keith Ledbetter first got a chance to speak about what an ABC SEMI membership can do for a company such as DiPonio Contracting, Inc.
“Keith was the first person to reach out to us and we immediately felt a sense of connection,” DiPonio states. “He is a great leader and led us to join.”
Frank and Chris learned quick that you get out what you put into your ABC SEMI membership. This father/son-in-law duo did not waste any time getting involved in everything our association has to offer; both currently hold board positions. This past summer Chris dove right in and joined our Emerging Professionals Board of Directors. Just a few short months after becoming a member, Frank was elected onto the ABC SEMI Board of Directors.
“I am confident in ABC SEMI, Maltese states. “I saw similarities between myself and the members in the way that I wanted to think and where I wanted to be.”
ABC SEMI is excited to have Frank, Chris and all of DiPonio Contracting, Inc. be a part of what we stand for as an association.
