The Massarelli's story began back in 1972 at a modest facility on just 3 acres of land in Egg Harbor City, New Jersey. Mario Massarelli was just 17 when he started the business and he did it all – designing statuary, creating and pouring molds, retail sales, wholesale sales, even attending trade shows. There was no textbook for success here. Everything Mario did he was self-taught. He was doing something that he loved, and the business grew.
Forty years later, Mario is still on the job…"hands-on" every step of the way. He is still creating and designing, a guiding force in the manufacturing of every single product that bears the Massarelli's name. For him, it's not work, it's a passion – a passion for perfection that has turned a dream into a forty-year success story.
