    Ferreira Construction is a certified MBE in multiple states.

    Nelson Ferreira, the owner of Ferreira Construction, came from humble beginnings to start his business.  Nelson was introduced to the construction profession at an early age, working alongside his father and it was this introduction that inspired him to work in the construction industry. Nelson grew and learned the industry, developing a true passion for the trade.  At age 19, Nelson purchased his first tandem truck.  This marked the genesis of Ferreira Trucking Company.

    Building Our Values

    Between the start of Ferreira Trucking Company in 1988 and the acquisition of additional 18 tandems and staff, by 1995 the transition from Ferreira Trucking to Ferreira Construction was underway. Nelson’s hard work and determination paid off: the company’s first major project was a $300,000 timber bridge in Somerset County, NJ.

    A son of immigrant parents and raised in Harrison, New Jersey, Nelson understands the perspectives of others and demonstrates mutual respect, fairness and equality in the workplace.

    While growing his business, Nelson has embraced his own diversity, as well as that of the company. In all aspects of his work, his goal is to be a role model to others and behave in a way that actively supports the principles of community and promotes diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

    Ferreira’s MBE status and our commitment diversity is important to Nelson and all of our employees.
