Founded by Brett S. Rugo, grandson of an Italian stone carver, Rugo Stone is a privately-owned company dedicated to the design, fabrication, and installation of natural stone, mosaic, and other architecturally significant stonework products. Mr. Rugo became interested in natural stone while growing up amid the granite quarries of Barre, Vermont. At age 15, Mr. Rugo’s stone career began, first in a marble shop, then in a quarry, and later, on urban construction jobsites assisting in the installation of stone work.
After college, he went to work for Moliterno Stone, at the time, greater Boston’s leading stone contractor. In 1996, Mr. Rugo founded Rugo Stone—a natural stone contracting company committed to the highest quality in craft and customer service. Together with other master stone masons, one of the industry’s most respected craftsmen, joined the firm, and together the two devoted all their knowledge and energy to creating a company dedicated to delivering extraordinary stonework, performed with integrity.
